Today is National Pasta Day! And as such, I have prepared this lovely and tasty dish. You may think pancetta and roasted red peppers are not flavorful enough, but with anchovy paste and white wine… it packs a ton of flavors!
I was over at my neighbor Angela’s house for dinner a few weeks ago and one of the dinner guests brought over some olive tapenade crostini as a starter. It was so tasty that I went out and got a jar for myself. I know I could have made it at home but I was lazy (what else is new?). So instead of making a crostini out of it, I threw it into my dinner. This pasta dish really has a ton of flavors. You can easily leave out the shrimp to make it vegetarian friendly. Leftovers are awesome the next day for lunch! If you’re a fan of olives, you’ll love this. Enjoy your week.
Chris left for Michigan yesterday to visit his family. The night before he left, I wanted to make him something delicious but quick for dinner. This pasta hit all the right spot. It’s tasty, pretty and filling! We paired this pasta dish with a glass of Chardonnay. It was the perfect meal together. Love you honey! Will have another yummy meal for you when you come home. xoxo!
I adapted this recipe from a magazine I was reading at my Acupuncture’s office. It was about healthy eating, yada, yada. Blah! I mean, don’t get me wrong —I’m all for healthy eating but the recipe was basically whole wheat pasta, pine nuts, lemon zest/juice, collard greens, garlic and Pecorino Romano cheese. The recipe didn’t sound all that great to me but the picture sure looked fantastic. So I decided to make it but I tailored it to my liking. This one is a winner, will be making more of it soon. Happy Friday!
As I was cleaning out my fridge over the weekend, I thawed out a pound of sweet Italian sausages. Last night as I was going over my pantry and fridge, I noticed I didn’t have much around the house. I used basically what I had on hand to make dinner —spaghetti, shallots, parsley, parmesan cheese and wine. This dish was tasty and quick. It would be even better if I had some garlic. Will have to add that in the next time I make this. I love the whole wheat spaghetti in this dish. I felt like I was eating something healthy. 🙂
