Delicious Past…

Pasta

Pastas bring family together, give comfort, create laughs. Spaghetti, Fusilli, Udon, Ziti, Penne, Fettuccine, Lasagna, Rigatoni, Ravioli…and the list goes on and on. What pasta do you want today? There are hot pasta dishes, baked pasta casseroles, fried pastas, cold pasta salads, and of course the many numbered cheesy pastas available. I am the number one fan of Spaghetti and Marinara Sauce. But only my personal spaghetti and marinara sauce. I don’t need meat or cheeses, no fancy stuff, just simple spaghetti noodles with a nice thick homemade marinara. That makes my day and life when I eat it up!

Jalapeno Bacon Macaroni & Cheese

Share

I am married with no kids. It is just us two, no parents, siblings, or crazed family members with nowhere to go. Just us. But yet I always, like no fail, always make a 9×13 baking dish of macaroni and cheese. I mean, way too much for two people. I am trying to figure out why I can’t use a smaller baking dish. I think it is my love for pasta. I always think I will need more. Then there is cheese…you can’t have enough of cheese, I mean come on! Butter needs no explanation and as for anything spicy or made with bacon, well, now I see why I can’t cut how much I bake nor eat!

In all seriousness though, I love macaroni and cheese. I get all excited about melty cheese. And this recipe has that melty cheese plus bacon with a kick of heat. YUM!

Delicious Rating: Once you go Jalapeno Bacon Macaroni and Cheese you never go back.  Each bite in this easy recipe leaves you wanting more. My DH and I loved it and nearly finished half the pan that night! You can control the spice with the amount of peppers you use and go crazy with the bacon if you want!

Vegetarian Haluski

Share

 This is a delicious variation of the Eastern European comfort food, Haluski. For that region, it is a very economical dish, full of veggies and sometimes pasta. I have made a couple of simple changes but kept the deliciousness of it! I didn’t think that it would eat like a comfort food but man, once I had a bowl of this on my couch, nothing but comfortable! My DH loved it and finished almost the whole pot that evening.

Delicious Rating: If you like one pot meals, this is for you. Super easy recipe to cook and the flavors are great. Reminiscent of Eastern Europe and Russian dishes, the tastes are different but not bad at all. Let me know what you think. Plus it is a vegetarian dish, super healthy, and can be a perfect side dish for any meat.

Spicy Korean Noodle Soup

Share

Zero Carbs, Zero Calories, Zero Fat…sounds a little iffy right? Well, I am not talking about this easy recipe (although it is super healthy and full of great stuff), I am talking about the Konjac Shirataki noodles in the soup. Naturally I was skeptical when Gita over at Konjac Foods sent me some samples of their products.

The noodles boast the whole “Zero” thing and are said to be pretty good. I found that they will only really work in an Asian recipe. They didn’t just go well with Marinara or Alfredo sauce. They also smell funny when you open the package. Just rinse them a few times before using! Once rinsed they are ready to go and be eaten. The perfect recipe for the Konjac noodles is this Spicy Korean Noodle Soup.

Delicious Rating:  This soup is chock full of all kinds of yummy goodness. You have spicy that you can control to your palate level. Assorted veggies for color and healthiness. Lentils for depth of flavor and protein.  And Konja Shirataki noodles for the extra slurp down! I love this soup and the heat and Asian flavor it gives off. Try it and let me know what you think!

Vegan Peanut Penne Pasta

Share


Pasta dishes can sometimes be complicated while others super simple. This Penne Pasta Recipe literally has dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes. I was really impressed with how easy everything was and how delicious it turned out. Almost all the ingredients I had on hand at home and so I just decided to whip something up real quick.

Delicious Rating: I rated this easy to cook, and delicious to eat, viagra 40mg and a definite on cooking again. Use different veggies if you prefer but the carrot and broccoli combo is great. Less spice for children. We had some leftovers and it was important that I add some more soy milk to the pasta when I reheated it for a smooth texture of the sauce. Let me know how this recipe turns out for you!
