Butternut Squash Risotto

This was an incredibly easy weeknight dinner after a week of long and involved meals. You can also potentially use up holiday leftovers, since I pre-roasted the squash the day before and added the mashed squash right at the end. It still has all the holiday flavors, but it’s great all winter long. Butternut Squash … Continue reading »

Delicata Squash Tart

Frequently when I make ravioli or another stuffed pasta, I have leftover filling. This is a great way to use it up, but it’s also an incredibly easy appetizer for parties or when you need a snack in a hurry. I have made this before with mushrooms and there are endless variations. It’s also another … Continue reading »

Delicata Squash Ravioli

I love making homemade ravioli because the process is so relaxing. It’s also fun to do with other people, and if you’re just getting into cooking, it’s very gratifying to see the final product that YOU made. It’s a time commitment, but you can make any kind of ravioli you feel like. I once made … Continue reading »

Pasta Al Forno with Eggplant

Baked pastas are so great because the flavors really get into the pasta and everything comes together. And it’s even better reheated the next day. This is a great vegetarian dinner too, because the eggplant is meaty and combined with a salad, it’s a perfect meal. Eggplant Pasta Al Forno 1 pound of short pasta, … Continue reading »

Favorite Fall Recipes

While we are in the midst of trying to sell the apartment, I’ve been falling back on old favorites. Last night, I made a version of this Puglian specialty, orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausageĀ and every time I make it, it brings me back to a night in southern Puglia. The meatiness of the sausage … Continue reading »

Weeknight Veal Ragu

I love a good bolognese, but sometimes I just don’t have time on a weeknight to invest in making it. That’s where this kind of pasta sauce comes in. It cooks in the time it takes to boil a big pot of water, and it uses enough veal to flavor the sauce but not enough … Continue reading »

Lemon Chicken with Fresh Fettuccine

I finally got around to trying out the new pasta machine a couple weeks ago when we had some great friends over. It’s a bit of a project to make fresh pasta, but it’s worth it. Plus, you can add in anything you want flavor-wise, although I generally just make plain pasta because I like … Continue reading »

Summery Grilled Corn Linguine

We’ve been having corn all summer, but this was the first time I decided to put some into a pasta dish. We took some leftover grilled corn and cut it off the cob, combined it with sweet end-of-summer cherry tomatoes and anchovies, and it was a perfect weekend lunch. The sweet corn and tomatoes combined … Continue reading »

Squash Blossom Pesto Pizza

Pizza is always a great go-to when you have people over because you can let them choose their own toppings. Make a big batch of dough, preheat the pizza stone and put out your topping options. I like to roll the dough out on an upside down cookie sheet so that you can just ease … Continue reading »
