Macaroni & Cheese

Photo courtesy of Wegmans.com I don’t know what exactly it is about macaroni & cheese but it is deliciously comforting. This recipe fits that bill and, if you use a “super pasta” it’s even a tiny bit healthy! Macaroni & Cheese (adapted from the original recipe) 14.5 oz short cut pasta (elbows, ziti, etc.), cooked […]

Lasagne Verdi al Forno: A Daring Baker Challenge

I really enjoy participating in the Daring Bakers because A) I get to try out recipes that I might not normally be drawn to and B) my skills as a home cook are challenged. Some challenges are easy for me, and others make me want to run and hide. I must admit that this month’s […]

Orzo with Chicken and Parmesan

It still may be too early for comfort food: the days are fairly sunny and warm, and it’s still light out at 7pm. But when those cooler, darker days roll around (or if you just want a preview) this quick and easy recipe fits the bill. My favorite part of this dish is the mouthfeel. […]

Pasta with Swiss Chard, Raisins & Almonds

On Monday, we received a good portion of Swiss chard in our farm share, which I don’t have very much experience with. So I was happy to find this recipe on Epicurious, adding a bit of pasta to turn it into a main meal based on Epicurious user recommendations. I very much like how healthy […]

Singapore Mei Fun with Shrimp

Before Shane and I got engaged and I moved Upstate, I used to eat Chinese take-out at least twice a month, sometimes more. It was cheap, it was flavorful, it was everywhere. But Shane isn’t a big fan of Chinese food, and I haven’t found any Chinese restaurants I really like, so now I eat […]

Baked Spaghetti Romanoff

I am so sick of winter. I’m tired of the snow. I’m tired of being cold. I’m tired of it getting dark before dinner time. And just when I thought that we were out of the woods (“Hey! There are buds on those trees!”), we get hit with a snow storm. The only thing to […]

Nancy’s Spinach & Mushroom-dressed Linguine

My friend Nancy made this FABULOUS pasta for the party. I can’t even describe how fan-freakin-tastic it is. I ate the leftovers for breakfast and dinner on Sunday, and we all ate it for dinner last night. There is one serving left. It is mine.— The following is written by Nancy, pictured below: Laura’s 30th […]

This Thing About Lasagna

I have always maintained that, if you are an Italian-American from the NY-metro area (and parts of NJ & Conn, too) that you are either in the mafia or know someone who is. (And, for what it’s worth, I fall into the latter category. ) I have a similarly sweeping statement about those of Italian […]

Garlicky Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

Click image for source. This is just so good. But when you combine fresh tomatoes and basil with extra virgin olive oil, garlic and Parmesan, it’s hard to imagine something bad! (Looking forward to tonight’s leftovers…) One thing though: I think12 oz of pasta (as the original recipe calls for) overwhelms the sauce. You may […]
