Well, at least not at home.
I’ve had the Pampered Chef cookware since I was a newlywed, and its nonstick surface and durable quality has lasted 15 years and is going strong! While they were a bit expensive, had I gone with a more inexpensive set, I likely would have had to buy several cookware sets in between. These are a worthwhile investment. I’m reminded whenever I cook with other cookware at church or on trips, that food burns more easily, sticks to the bottom, and is much more difficult to clean when I use other cookware. I have never had to scrub a Pampered Chef pot because even burned-on food just wipes out. (Not that I ever burn food. Ahem.)
The set has changed a bit over the years, but the comparable set is this.
I still love and use them every day!
Here’s a favorite recipe which puts this awesome cookware to use. Ken and I have loved this soup recipe so much! It’s souper easy, and souper delicious!
Tortellini and Sausage Soup
1 lb. ground sausage (We like spicy!)
6-9 oz frozen or fresh cheese tortellini
2 cans 14 oz Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes
1 box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 can beef broth
1 1/2 cups water
In large soup pot, brown sausage. Drain. Add remaining ingredients, and heat to boiling. Simmer for 10 minutes, ensuring that tortellini is cooked.
This recipe makes 6 large hearty and delicious servings of soup. Serve with a side salad and some bread, and you’ve got a meal that is perfect for cold rainy nights!
