There are so many possibilities when you have a big pan of roasted vegetables. You could put them over pasta, rice, couscous, or polenta for a quick and easy dinner. Fold them into a piece of pizza crust with some sauce and cheese and call it a calzone. Omelet? Yes. Panini? Of course! My favorite […]

Couscous with Peas & Mint. Funky, refreshing, and delicious. Also quick and easy to prepare. This is the couscous that I made to go with the Shrimp with Fennel & Garlic featured in yesterday’s post. As I mentioned there, not only was this a great side dish and compliment to the shrimp, but it was […]

Lasagna with many mushrooms. Delicate, in a cheesy sort of way. And Good! So good! Before we jump headlong into the frenzy that is going to be Christmas Cookies, let me share this wonderful pan full of mushroomy goodness with you. Be warned, this recipe has a ton of ingredients and I’m about to swamp […]

Butternut Squash and Spinach and Leeks and Cheese = Awesome Veggie Lasagna! These are some of my favorite flavors to put together. I have at least 4 different squash lasagna recipes pulled out of magazines and probably two or three more on Pinterest. None of them were exactly what I wanted (with leeks!) so I […]

Pesto!

Nothing says summer to me like fresh basil. Living in Florida, I have pots of it growing on my patio most of the year, but basil never really gets going for most of the country until summer. Then lookout! Basil galore. Going through the farmer’s market, you can smell it before you approach a table […]

Minestrone

A week or so ago when I made this Fabulous Focaccia, I also made a big pot of hearty Minestrone soup. Full of a garden’s worth of vegetables, this Italian soup is easy to make and also easy to customize to your  own taste. There are a few usual suspects in Minestrone…tomatoes, onions, zucchini, beans […]

Pasta Puttanesca

Pasta Puttanesca! Do you know the rather colorful story about Pasta Puttanesca? The story goes that (ahem) ladies of the evening would make a large dish of this highly aromatic pasta and put it in the window or doorway to lure their gentlemen customers in to their (ahem) establishments. Now I’m not sure how true […]

Variations on a Theme of Vodka Sauce. Penne pasta with a silky sauce of tomatoes, vodka and cream plus little bits of Italian sausage. Good stuff. I like to do a couple of versions of my standard vodka sauce. It’s such a quick sauce to make and is easy to jazz it up with whatever […]

Creamy Zucchini Linguine. With Pancetta….but that doesn’t rhyme. No, I’m not having my own personal Zucchini Festival over  here. Even though I’ve recently posted a recipe for  Zucchini Pineapple Bread, this pasta was too good not to share right away. Besides, it’s zucchini time. By the way, my friend Tim tells me that if you […]
