Pork tenderloin with rapini and creamy polenta

Chatelaine | posted Tuesday, Feb 10th, 2015

Prep time: 15 minutes
Total cooking time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4-6


  • 500-g pork tenderloin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • Creamy Polenta:
    3 1/2 cups, plus 2 tbsp no-salt chicken broth, divided
    – 1/4 tsp salt
    – 3/4 cup cornmeal
    – 1 diced plum tomato
  • Rapini:
    1 tsp canola oil
    – 2 minced garlic cloves
    – 1 bunch rapini, stems trimmed


  1. Boil 3 1/2 cups chicken broth in a large saucepan. Reduce heat to medium. Whisk in cornmeal and salt. Cook until thickened but still loose, about 2 min. Remove from heat and let stand 2 min to completely absorb liquid. Whisk in 2 tbsp no-salt chicken broth, tomato and cilantro. Cover to keep warm.
  2. Cut a pork tenderloin into 1/2-in. rounds. Stir chili powder with smoked paprika and salt. Sprinkle on both sides of pork.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add 1 tsp canola oil, then garlic and rapini. Sauté until tender-crisp, 4 to 5 min. Transfer rapini to a platter. Add 2 tsp canola oil to pan, then pork. Cook until firm, 2 to 3 min per side. Serve with polenta and rapini.

Savoury garlic mac and cheese

BT Toronto | posted Monday, Sep 16th, 2013

Savoury garlic mac and cheese


  • 4 cups scoobi doo pasta, uncooked
  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tub (270 g) Philadelphia Savoury Garlic Cooking Creme
  • 2 cups Kraft Double Cheddar Shredded Cheese, divided


  1. Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt.
  2. Meanwhile, cook and stir bacon in medium saucepan on medium heat until crisp. Drain fat. Add onions to same pan; cook 5 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Add Cooking Creme and 1-1/2 cups shredded cheese; cook and stir on medium-low heat 2 min. or until heated through.
  3. Heat broiler. Drain pasta, reserving 1/3 cup cooking water. Gradually stir in reserved pasta water into sauce. Add pasta; mix lightly.
  4. Spoon into 13×9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with remaining shredded cheese. Broil, 6 inches from heat, 2 min. or until golden brown.

Cooking know-how:  Thoroughly drain cooked pasta because excess water clinging to the pasta will dilute any sauce that you add.
