Chicken Pea Pesto Pasta

May 30, 2013

I had an extra bag of peas in my freezer. I don’t really like peas. Not plain anyways. So, I decided to come up with a recipe planned around the neglected peas. Pea pesto immediately popped into my mind. But the idea of pea pesto and pasta seemed kind of plain to me. Or at […]

Butternut Squash Lasagna

November 8, 2012

This recipe has been on my “to-do” list every Fall for the past two years, I swear…and now I have finally gotten around to making it! Ever since I tried Giada’s Butternut Squash Tortellini with Brown Butter Sauce, (which was TO-DIE-FOR) I knew I had to try her lasagna. My Husband is not a big […]

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

Cannelloni Di Magro

June 17, 2012

Homemade pasta shaped into rectangles and rolled into stuffed tubes of deliciousness- HOLY COW, was this months challenge swoon worthy! We were challenged to not only make our own fresh pasta, but then create a cannelloni dish with them. For those of you that are familiar, cannelloni are very similar to manicotti. I made some […]

Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese

June 15, 2012

A week or so I had a craving. A craving of the most serious kind. I’m talking “I need to go to the store immediately to get the ingredients to make this NOW” kind of craving. And it was for something ooey, gooey, and cheesy. I decided that nothing but Macaroni and Cheese would satisfy […]
