27 Comments

I’ve said before that butternut squash and I were not always such good friends. Once I discovered that I did not hate butternut squash – I liked it quite a lot in fact – I began to try new recipes so that I could add this tasty squash into my Fall recipe rotation.  This recipe was […]

Fresh Pasta – Mushroom Ricotta Ravioli

Friday, September 18, 2009

15 Comments

I had often wondered how hard fresh, homemade, pasta would be to prepare.  In my mind I imagined that it would be an all day process.  I was wrong.   That said, I did use a pasta roller to roll the pasta into sheets.  That made the process SO easy.  If you have to roll […]

Bolognese Sauce

I am not a very patient person.  When I want something, I kind of want it now.  That can be a problem when what I want is bolognese sauce.    The trick to good bolognese is to take your time with each step, letting things get brown or simmer completely before moving on to the […]

Creamy Orzo and Mushroom Pasta

Ever since I was invited to the Mushroom Council lunch a few months ago I have been looking for new ways to add mushrooms into my everyday meals.   I have also been looking for new ways to use favorite ingredients because I can sometimes get into a cooking rut.  Orzo pasta is one of my […]

Grilled Mushroom and Ricotta Pizza on Sourdough Wheat Crust

Friday, June 12, 2009

I have been on something of a pizza kick lately, and not those commercially prepared pies with flavorless cheese and mushy veggies. I can directly pin-point when this all started.  It began at the Mushroom Council lunch when Chef Kent Rathburn made us a grilled mushroom pizza.  I knew in that moment that I would […]

Turkey Meatballs with Quick Tomato Cream Sauce

Monday, May 18, 2009

 There are some days when I crave meatballs, but I do not crave the fat content contained in most recipes.   Not that I am afraid of fat.  Quite the opposite, I adore fat, but some nights I want something a little lighter.  That, however, does not mean I want to sacrifice flavor.  That is why […]

I was thrilled to be selected as one of the lucky bloggers to test the new Riserva pasta’s from Buitoni.  I got a pack of the Wild Mushroom Agnolotti and I was tasked with coming up with a sauce to compliment the pasta. This is a wild mushroom pasta, and I love the combination of […]

Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta

Monday, April 6, 2009

While out at dinner a few nights ago I had some really lovely garlic shrimp over rice.  It was really tasty, but I am not a fan of rice unless it is my mother-in-laws fried rice, and I wondered how it would taste with pasta instead.   So, a few nights later the inspiration bug […]
