Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
FROM OUR PARTNERS AT RO*TEL
It’s easy to adjust this recipe for kids or for anyone who likes a little less spice. Prepare as directed using RO*TEL Mild Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies, featuring the ripest, plumpest tomatoes but with a little less kick.
Tip 2
Preparing Perfect Pasta
Follow the package directions to ensure that enough water is used for cooking the pasta. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente (tender but still a little firm to the bite), stirring frequently. To prevent pasta from sticking, add it slowly to plenty of boiling water and stir frequently while cooking. Adding oil to the cooking water is not recommended because some sauces may not cling to pasta coated with oil.
Tip 3
Substitute
Prepare using 2% Milk VELVEETA.
