Cacio e Pepe

This is a very simple pasta dish, similar to aglio e olio and truffle oil pasta. I like to make this on days when I need to get dinner on the table quickly.  That’s usually when I’m already tired and super-hungry, no energy even for a drive-thru and no patience to wait for delivery. 😀 […]

Three-Cheese Pasta with Bacon

Three-Cheese Pasta with Bacon

One of my favorite pasta dishes to make. Easy, delicious. Rich in calcium and protein and some fats perfect for growing kids and cheese-loving adults.  My family loves it.

Bacon basil and chili pepper Pasta

Bacon basil and chili pepper Pasta

This is actually a variation from my favorite pasta aglio e olio- which my family thinks is kind of bland. Well, I told them, especially to the husband and the little one that – it’s because aglio e olio is the equivalent of garlic rice, it means, we pair this with meat or chicken or […]

Spaghetti and Meatballs

I often find happiness and contentment in a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. It’s one of my favorite foods- the blend of tomatoes, cheese and meat, the aroma of it while it cooks is intoxicating for me. Crusty garlic bread on the side completes the meal..a glass of red wine would have been an ideal […]
