For the first day of October, I thought I’d post a pumpkin recipe…seeing as it’s officially pumpkin season now. I made this delicious Pumpkin Sausage Lasagna last night for dinner. While it may not be the prettiest dish (it is a casserole, after all), it definitely is flavorful and it makes a wonderful Autumn meal. […]

Penne in Country Ragù

April 11, 2011 by andrea | 3 Comments | Filed in Italian, Main Dish, Pasta, Pork, Recipes

Because I love Italian sausage, I always try to have some on hand so I can make simple pasta dishes like this one. The ragù gets flavor from the sausage, a little red wine, garlic and some fresh basil.  And, if you make it a day ahead, it’s a perfect meal for entertaining because all you have to do […]

Italian Wedding Soup

February 3, 2011 by andrea | 6 Comments | Filed in Chicken, Italian, Main Dish, Pasta, Recipes, Soup/Stew

My first thought was, “Do Italian people really eat this at weddings?” I’m not Italian so it’s an honest question, don’t you think? After a little research, though, I learned that the “wedding” part refers to the fact that the vegetables and meat go well together in this Italian-American soup (hence the marriage). Whatever the history, it’s […]

I ran across this recipe for Chinese Noodle and Chicken Salad the other day and thought it would be a great pasta salad dish to make for the weekend: tender noodles, crunchy snow peas and a creamy, peanutty Asian-inspired dressing. Yumm! Husband loved it, too.  You’ll notice that this recipe serves 20 people, which is great […]

Really Good Lasagna

November 2, 2010 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Beef, Comfort Food, Italian, Main Dish, Pasta, Recipes

Really Good Lasagna may be a goofy name for a recipe but it’s true…it really is good! Instead of using ricotta cheese like many lasagna recipes, this one layers lasagna noodles with a meat sauce, a creamy Parmesan white sauce, and Fontina cheese.  The resulting lasagna is creamier than the version most of us have had. It’s […]

Pasta Bolognese

This recipe for Pasta Bolognese is from a chef at the Culinary Institute of America, the world’s premiere culinary college. It’s rich, hearty, meaty and a perfect pasta dish for these cool, autumn evenings. The recipe calls for 6 ounces of pancetta but my container only had 4 oz., so that’s what I used…I didn’t […]

Chile Mac

September 13, 2010 by andrea | 5 Comments | Filed in Beef, Comfort Food, Kid-friendly, Main Dish, Pasta, Quick Cooking, Recipes

Now that we’re heading into Autumn, it’s time to start hauling out the comfort food recipes!!! Chile Mac, a simple and comforting dish, is nothing fancy but it is a good, quick weeknight dinner. Plus, it’s fairly inexpensive to make and can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a crowd. I usually use beef broth instead of chicken broth, and […]

Five-Spice Chicken Noodle Salad

August 17, 2010 by andrea | 5 Comments | Filed in Asian, Grilling/BBQ, Pasta, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Salad

  This is a great summer recipe because it’s light, cool and refreshing. Be liberal with your use of the fresh mint and cilantro…it brings a ton of flavor to the salad! I’ve made this salad with different types of rice noodles, and rice sticks work as well as rice vermicelli. Whatever type of rice noodles you […]
