(member recipe) 30 Minute BLT pasta

(member recipe) 30 Minute BLT pasta

July 22, 2013

On my list of favorite summer foods, BLTs are right at the top. This easy weeknight pasta came about when I wanted a BLT but (gasp) I didn't have any gluten-free bread in the house. For once, it was a good thing that I was out of bread because this recipe is awesome.

To make, simple boil a pound of pasta. Toss it with a pint of halved grape tomatoes, sauteed baby spinach (the stand-in for the "L" in the BLT"), and crumbled bacon. If you're feeling frisky, add some chopped basil or a generous shake of Parmesan cheese. That's it.

Oh, and as for that baby spinach. That's what I use. Any green leafy vegetable works (and tastes great!) in this pasta. Use what you love and then tell me about. . . . keep reading

(Member Recipe) 4 Ingredient Pasta: Cacio e Pepe
(Member Recipe) 4 Ingredient Pasta: Cacio e Pepe

June 18, 2012

While I've never eaten a pound of pasta in a sitting, Cacio e Pepe makes me want to try. Made with only four ingredients: pasta, parmesan cheese, black pepper, and butter, this pasta dish is as simple as it is comforting. There's not a riot of flavors going on here. And, if you are like me, sometimes that's just what you need.

Last week Dale Talde and the folks at reminded me how much I love this dish thanks to their neat video on how to make Cacio e Pepe.

(Member How To and Recipe) How to Make Lobster and Asparagus Pasta with Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce
(Member How To and Recipe) How to Make Lobster and Asparagus Pasta with Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce

May 14, 2012


The fact that lobster goes on sale regularly around here is just one of the many perks to living in this area (upstate New York. Near Albany). Last week, lobster was only $6.99 a pound. I couldn't pass that up. So I picked up a few at the store for dinner. There were three of us eating; so I asked for five lobsters. And, as you probably guessed, I had leftovers. What a glorious problem to experience, leftover lobster


I made this quick and easy lobster and asparagus pasta in a garlic parmesan cream sauce with the leftover lobster. While, the meal only took about 30 minutes, it didn't taste like a "quick cook." meal. 

Here's how to make this easy and elegant gluten-free pasta dish: . . . keep reading

Spaghetti alla Carbonara
Spaghetti alla Carbonara Several years ago, I read an article about Spaghetti alla Carbonara. It was one of those dishes I instantly wanted to make, but for whatever reason didn't. Every time I would see it on a menu I'd think, "I've got to make that sometime." Finally I did! It's awesome-- pasta, eggs, and bacon! How could it get any better? Don't let the eggs freak you out. The heat from the hot pasta cooks them. And be sure to save some cooking water. It will help you to adjust the sauce to the right consistency. You want the sauce to be velvety smooth. Think of the most wonderful cream sauce you've ever eaten. That is the consistency this sauce should be. . . . keep reading
Pasta Primavera
The other day I thought about pasta primavera. When was the last time you enjoyed this dish? It had been years since I'd eaten it. So, I pulled out my recipe and made it for dinner. It was just as good as I remembered. There are many versions of this dish. Here is mine. Save this recipe for a weekend meal. It takes some time to prepare, but the result is well worth it! . . . keep reading
Gluten-Free Penne with Fresh Tomatoes Recipe
I find walking into the kitchen after a long day and pulling out a skillet to make a fresh pasta sauce incredibly relaxing. Preparing a simple dinner is my way of reconnecting with my home life after spending all day at work. What I don't want to do is follow another recipe (What do you think I do all day at work!?!) I put on my thick cotton socks and begin pulling this and that out of the cabinets. Olive oil, garlic, olives, tomatoes. Soon, dinner is ready and I have decompressed. I want to stress to you that you don't need to follow this recipe to the letter. The ingredients are only suggestions. Modify this recipe to suit your family's taste. Add more olives, more garlic, it's up to you! . . . keep reading
Mock Box Gluten-Free Macaroni and Cheese Recipe
I'm not ashamed to admit it. I grew up with macaroni and cheese that came right out of the Kraft box. For me, macaroni and cheese was a side dish served when my mother was too tired to make anything else. Oh, how I loved it! The neon orange macaroni was one of my favorite foods. If you, or your kids, love Kraft Mac and Cheese (Or is it cheese and macaroni?), this recipe is for you. . . . keep reading
Classic Gluten-Free Macaroni and Cheese Recipe
Classic macaroni and cheese is a recipe I came to as an adult. A friend mentioned she was making macaroni and cheese for dinner and I said, "Oh and what else?" She was shocked when I told her the only macaroni and cheese I had ever eaten came from a blue box. Of course, she took it upon herself to introduce me to "real" macaroni and cheese. I loved it! The gooey cheese and crunchy bread topping made me an instant convert. Now, I know, when someone says they are making macaroni and cheese for dinner not to ask "oh and what else?" Live and learn, right? . . . keep reading
