Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe

Hello everyone! I’m back! Thanks for being patient with me while I took some time off from the blog world – you will get something good out of this wait, I promise! (*cough* free pattern Friday, anyone?) On to this recipe – it’s really just Spaghetti with Cheese and Pepper but it sounds fancier in […]

Pasta with Asparagus, Pancetta, and Pine Nuts

I am a big fan of simple pastas. They are filling, quick and usually fairly inexpensive. Sometimes they are even remotely healthy! I saw this one in a recent issue of Cooking Light and thought it sounded right up my alley. I was right! The only changes I made were that I toasted the pine […]

Linguine and Spinach with Gorgonzola Sauce

I do still cook non-dessert meals, see? I set out looking for some quick meals for during the week, mainly because I haven’t been feeling very inspired on the dinner cooking front and I found this one.

Lemon Gnocchi with Spinach and Peas

So I was searching for a quick and easy pasta dish last week and stumbled on this delicious meal.

The boxed unrefrigerated gnocchi […]

Mac and Two Cheeses with Caramelized Shallots

This was much easier than other mac and cheese recipes that I’ve tried, it had fewer ingredients, and it came together very quickly. I loved the creaminess of the goat cheese and the delicious sweetened onion-y/garlicky bite that the caramelized shallots gave. There was serious depth of flavor for so few ingredients. I didn’t use […]
