Quick, easy and tasty One Pot Pasta

I have been wanting to try this for the longest time. I LOVE pasta of any form. LOVE. So after hearing and see a few pictures of people doing various one pot pastas I said I had to see what this was really about. I was concerned about things becoming soggy, or the pasta not cooking in the process, but it went very smoothly....more

Penne alla Vodka

I have a confession to make, this was the first time I had this pasta. Every time I thought about it, I would think about how much cream, fat and calories were in it and then I’d talk myself out of it. Here, there’s my compromise; there’s cream but it’s half & half, and it’s also half the amount other recipes call for! http://lisagcooks.com/lisa-g-news/penne-alla-vodka/   ...more

The Cheesiest Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe (Parmesan + Romano)

I swear I'm 1/2 mouse. I love cheese so much! The main reason why I love eating Italian dishes is that it always, almost, comes with cheese.This fettuccine recipe that I'm sharing with you is perhaps the cheesiest there is---and probably also the most fattening. So, leave this for special occasions (like, you survived a Monday after the 4th of July weekend---this feat calls for a celebration!)...more

Couscous Salad with Chermoula Dressing

During teacher appreciation week at N’s school.

I did get over my end of the school year symptoms ( read fear, with all three home ) long enough to make the lunch !! I think the idea of a brand new ……..guinea pig, if you will, pushed me up from the doldrums for a bit ! Ms....more
