Shrimp Primavera with Goat Cheese

Rating: 5 stars 21
This dish is one of my favorites. If you like goat cheese it will become one of yours as well. I was inspired to make this dish after trying a similar one made with chicken at a local restaurant. Serve with a nice crusty loaf of french bread, a garden salad, and a glass of your favorite red wine!

Lighter Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

Rating: 4.5 stars 136
This version of chicken fettuccine alfredo is lightened by substituting some of the heavy cream with chicken broth.

Ditalini with Roasted Tomato Sauce and Goat Cheese

Rating: 4.5 stars 34
Make this because it tastes awesome. What the hot oven does to the deep red San Marzano tomatoes is a wonder to behold, and produces a pasta sauce with some serious depth of flavor. The always entertaining ditalini are a perfect medium for the rich sauce, smoky oregano, and creamy goat cheese.

Spicy Roasted Tomato and Ricotta Pasta Sauce

Rating: 5 stars 2
Roasting tomatoes is an easy way to add a flavorful punch to your pasta sauce! Add in light and creamy ricotta and savory Italian sausage and you have the perfect complement to a hearty pasta like cavatappi or farfalle.

Sichuan (Szechuan) Cold Noodle

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
Sichuan (Szechuan) cold noodle is one of the most famous Sichuan street foods. What I mean by street food is that you can get it almost anywhere in Sichuan--even a small food stand on the side of the street. It is actually simple to make, and the ingredients are easy to find. It is definitely a quick, easy meal, though you might want to watch out for the garlic. This noodle dish is better served right away. It does not taste as good if you leave it overnight and take it for lunch.

Fettuccine with Creamy Roasted Beet Sauce

Rating: 5 stars 7
A vegetarian fettuccine dish made with a delicious nightshade-free pasta sauce.

Spicy Rice Noodle Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 60
The first time I had a spicy, cold rice noodle salad, it wasn't the bold flavors that caught me by surprise, but the strange and addictive texture.

Lemony Dill Salmon Pasta Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
Most pasta salads have a mayonnaise base, which I thought was too heavy for a salmon pasta salad. I swapped in a vinaigrette of sorts, with just a dusting of freshly grated Parmesan cheese for a touch of indulgence. It's the perfect way to use any leftover salmon.
