Five Dollar Farfalle (Fancy $5 Footlong) by Erik of Fancy Fast Food(as seen in the syndicated news article by The Associated Press)
Ingredients:
1 Subway $5 Footlong (Oven Roasted Chicken Breast on Italian bread with double tomatoes, olives, green peppers, and onions)
1 bottle of water
organic basil or parsley leaves (for garnish and a touch of irony)
After disassembling your sandwich down to its ingredients, break some pieces of bread into a food processor.  Add about a 1/4 cup of water, and then blend it down until it turns back into a doughy substance.  We are going to mold this dough into bowtie shapes, but it will most likely be too moist and sticky to play with.  Dry it out by placing the wad on a non-stick baking pan and baking it for 10-15 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 350° F.While that’s drying, chop your tomatoes down into a chunky pulp, and start stewing them in a small pot with some water.  Chop the rest of your vegetables, and then add them to the pot.  Let all the ingredients of the marinara sauce simmer for a bit before slicing some chicken and adding that to the mix as well.The wad of dough should be dry but still moldable by this time.  Let it cool to room temperature before rolling a small piece of it flat with a rolling pin.  Then, using a 2” x 2” ravioli stamp, cut out a serrated square. Pinch the center of the square until it looks like a bowtie.  Repeat this process until you have enough farfalle for your dish.Place all of your fancy-looking farfalle pasta in the center of a fancy white plate, then top it off with the chicken marinara sauce.  Garnish with organic basil or parsley and serve the rest of the water in a wine glass.  Presto! How do you like that, Jared?
