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. 🙂
As mentioned in my 9/18 post, here’s another recipe with kimchi. I think I’m about half way done with my container. This is a great go-to recipe if you’re tired or lazy or don’t want to put a lot of effort into dinner. It’s easy, tasty and takes no time to make. It’s also a good go-to when you don’t want to put too much heat in the house. Enjoy!
This is the second time I have made pesto sauce from scratch. It tastes so much different than the stuff you get at the store. When you make it at home, there’s that taste of freshness that you don’t get with store bought pesto. I highly recommend making it yourself if you have the time.
Chow mein is one of those dish that you can throw whatever meat or veggies you have on hand. I love ordering them at restaurants but I always feel guilty afterwards for eating it because of all the grease and MSG. When you cook it at home, it’s just so much healthier. Plus, they make wonderful leftovers the next day. Here’s my version of it.
