Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata
One thing I learned in my years living in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, NY was how to cook a good Italian meal. Here is a recipe I created after having this dish in a restaurant. Enjoy!
Easy and light pasta with tomatoes and garlic. Cooked chicken breast chunks or shrimp can also be added to sauce for a great main dish!
Penne with Chicken and Asparagus
Fresh asparagus and seasoned chicken are tossed with Parmesan over pasta.
Butternut Squash Soup with Spinach Ravioli
This wonderful soup has become the newest addition to my family's traditional Thanksgiving dinner. It is hearty and delicious and perfect for banishing winter chill.
Cheesy Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce
I had some leftover cooked butternut squash and and made this savory pasta sauce. It is tasty over ravioli or any whole grain pasta. Your squash should be very soft to begin with. I generally steam my squash in a slow cooker for 4-5 hours.
No-Cream Pasta Primavera
Spring veggies benefit from a quick roasting in olive oil and herbs before being tossed with penne. No cream here, just the fresh flavors of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and lemon. A beautiful dish.

Death By Garlic
This is a very flavorful dish that my brothers named Death By Garlic. Warning: If one person has this, you'd better all have some! Beautiful flavor and zest. (I like to brown kielbasa sausage and toss it in, then sprinkle feta cheese on top. Yum!)
