Ever wish you could make a mac and cheese recipe that you’d become famous for? You know, the one your […]
When it comes to a special occasion meal, such as Valentine’s Day, who doesn’t think of steak and lobster?
So then, why not treat your sweetheart to a home cooked and relatively easy Valentine’s Day meal of Steak and Lobster Linguine to show them just how much you really care?!
When I learned that this weeks #SundaySupper theme is orzo pasta, I jumped at the opportunity to develop this light and refreshing new dish.
Orzo is probably one of my favorite kinds of pasta. The shape is so tiny and compact that it works well as a filling for a stuffed dish like this Elegant Orzo, Shrimp & Vegetable Salad Stuffed Avocado.
This recipe for Slow Cooker Meatball Lasagna is a family favorite of ours. I’ve made several different versions of this traditional Italian favorite (as you’ll notice in this post), and they’re all easy, tasty, and completely satisfying!
I’m sharing this recipe for Christmas Pasta with Red & Green Bell Peppers as a recipe re-do. The original post was one I’d published in December of 2012, but it’s now time for some updated pictures. Below is the original photo from the post back in 2012. As you can see, it was in dire need of an update! The recipe stayed the same, but the photos (thankfully), haven’t.
As you’ll see in the photos and video, I made this Alfredo Ravioli Lasagna in a square-shaped springform pan. The reason I chose this pan is that I’ve had it in my cabinet, and have never (not once) used it. It’s not like I have a lot of unused pots and pans in my kitchen, but due to neglect and a fair bit of inorganization on my part (i.e., getting pushed to the back of the cabinet), my square springform pan was in need of some serious loving.
My neighbor came over to my house one day in mid-August with a bag of corn on the cob she’d brought me from Wisconsin. What a treat! I thanked her profusely for the unexpected gift and stuck them in my fridge knowing that I’d use them for something soon. Days passed, and I still hadn’t used them…
The thing I like most about this recipe (other than all the CHEESE), is how easy it is to make this recipe on a busy weeknight.
By cooking the pasta while the vegetables are sauteing and the cheese sauce thickens, this Pepperoni Pizza Macaroni & Cheese can be on the dinner table in less time than it takes to order from your favorite take-out place.
This dish of caramelized seared scallops comes together quickly and with only a small handful of ingredients. And, with only a large high sided saute pan this recipe can easily be made as a one pot wonder.
Imagine if you will, deeply caramelized onions (cooked in a slow cooker) with red wine, butter, beef broth and thyme until they’re sweet and pungent. The onions are stuffed into large, perfectly cooked pasta shells until they’re practically overflowing. The stuffed shells are then layered on top of toasted, garlicky French bread, topped with an abundant mixture of grated Swiss, and Gruyere cheeses, and popped into the oven, so the cheese melts into a blanket of golden, gooey, goodness…Be still my French onion loving heart!
