Randy’s Recipes: Fifteen Minute Macaroni Bisque (Randyjw; February 28, 2017)
1/2 box (12 oz.) macaroni, or other, pasta
1 can (10.5 oz.) bisque soup (seafood, lobster, chowder, corn, vegetable, etc.)
12 oz. chicken stock (two chicken bouillon cubes dissolved in travel mug sized coffee cup)
1/4 – 1/2 Tablespoon butter
1/8 teaspoon (4 shakes) garlic powder
1 bay leaf, small
4 drops apple-cider vinegar
Thickener, if desired (cornstarch, flour, etc.)
Optional Add-Ins: Port-Wine Cheese Spread (like Kaukauna) (I haven’t actually tried this, yet…)
Boil pasta, as per package directions; then, strain and set aside.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a saucepan until heated through, reducing sauce with continued heat to thicken. If using thickener, use some of the heated sauce and add to the powdered thickener in a separate bowl, to dissolve and to temper the thickener to the desired consistency; then add to sauce and stir. Pour over pasta. Season to taste.
