Bacon White Cheddar Pesto Mac and Cheese
A rich and bacon-y variation of the tradition macaroni and cheese pasta dish.
Chicken Sausage Gnocchi Skillet
A light-tasting dish with mild flavors that is quick to prepare as long as you prep the gnocchi in advance.
Asian-Inspired Vegetable Noodle Bowl
Delicious, nutritious vegetarian noodle bowl. Lots of color and flavor. You can find the green soybeans in the freezer department of your grocery store.
Light Shrimp and Pesto Pasta
For a quick meal that's elegant enough to serve to company, you can't beat the combination of shrimp, pesto, and pasta. Using garlic scapes instead of basil and garlic gives this dish a lighter note.
Pasta with Gorgonzola Sauce and Radicchio
This rich and flavorful sauce is the perfect match for bitter radicchio. It is incredibly easy to make and goes well with any type of (preferably fresh) pasta. My favorite pasta to have this with is gnocchi. The light and fluffy potato pasta goes well with the rich sauce. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and parsley.
Whole-Family Pasta with Broccoli and Cauliflower
Many children, especially picky eaters, love pasta loaded with plain butter--a dish that clearly earns low marks on the health scale. This great alternative adds fiber and protein with beans, which kids actually love!
This pasta dish is my signature dish. I really enjoy making this pasta, especially with the right ingredients like guanciale. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
Chicken and Asparagus Fettuccine
This is so rich and filling that one serving goes a long way. Crusty bread and a salad is all this creamy dish needs to make a complete and hearty meal.
