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

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 […]

Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Also known as coal miner’s spaghetti (according to wikipedia),  pasta alla carbonara is a really simple and easy dish to prepare (why I’m done cooking in under 20 minutes).   It’s a hearty, delicous and very satisfying.  I like to use Tyler Florence’s simple recipe with some adjustments to suit my family’s taste and my […]

Pasta with Pulled Pork

So here’s the recipe for the pasta dish that I mentioned in my post yesterday. It’s my favorite recipe using pulled pork. I love it because it’s not just very easy but also oh so goood..hearty, yummy satisfyingly-good!! It’s easy like I said provided you have done the pulled pork already, all you have to […]

Giada’s Lasagna Rolls

This is one recipe that I know I’m gonna be making only once; I can tell from just reading it.  Oh, I know  that it’s gonna be awesome ( it’s loaded with cheese, so why won’t it be..I love cheese!)  but I had also foreseen the work, the dishes that I will be washing and […]

Lemon Spaghetti

When I first made lemon spaghetti, I used Giada de Laurentiis recipe; while I liked it, my family didn’t–it was too sour/tangy for them. I gave this dish another try using Rachel Ray’s recipe. I must say, I like this one better because of the addition of garlic, red chilli flakes and some cream; the […]

Baked Macaroni Pesto

My family and I love pesto, it’s simple, healthy and delicious, so I make it often especially when basil is abundant in the market.   But the kids, they love cheesy bechamel sauce too especially my daughter so I thought of combining the two but here, I did not add nuts and cheese to the pesto, it’s very basic- just […]

Pasta alla Puttanesca (Slut’s Spaghetti)

According to Nigella’s blog where I got the recipe, this delicious pasta which originated from Napoli in Italy is said to have been prepared by prostitutes who didn’t have time to go to the market for fresh produce and needed to prepare their dish quickly in between their clients..whether that’s true or not, it doesn’t […]
