In this recipe video, I make a Chicken Penne with Mushroom Cream Sauce. Now shockingly enough, I don't think a box of penne ever entered my parents house growing up. We had spaghetti noodles all time. Lasagna, sure. And maybe even the corkscrews, but penne was a just a bit too exotic.Continue Reading...

    Spaghetti with Chicken and Fava Beans

    As I’ve said before, pasta recipes are among my favorites because there are so many options, with so many ingredients.  I love the rich heavy sauces, that simmer on the stove and perfume the entire house (if not neighborhood), and I also love the light quick dishes that take 20 minutes to make, but are still packed with flavor and bite.  In this recipe video, I show you one of those 20 minute p

    Gnocchi Bolognese

    One of the nice (really very nice) things about a sauce like Bolognese, is that you can make a large batch and then freeze little containers with just enough for one night.  Then, without a ton of work, you can have spaghetti Bolognese, ravioli Bolognese, meat lasagna, eggplant parmesan…and you can also make gnocchi Bolognese, which is what I show you in this recipe video.  I love these little

    Ravioli with Gorgonzola Sauce

    I love ravioli.  The little tiny stuffed pastas, are a great contrast in texture, and the different fillings provide a wide variety of flavors.  I love to make my own, but I’m also excited about the wide range of high quality ravioli you can buy at the store.  It’s a huge time saver, with the extra time, you can invest a bit more into creating cool sauces, and garnishes for your ravioli.  In th

    Chicken Penne with Mushroom Cream Sauce

    The other day, my wife simply said of this dish “…this one’s a winner”.  Despite growing up in a house that (to my memory at least) never saw a box of penne pasta, I’ve learned to love these short little tube shapes.  Like all pastas, there are a ton of different ways you can prepare penne, and in this recipe video, I make a mushroom cream sauce (similar to an alfredo sauce) to pai

    Fettucini Alfredo

    My first fettucini alfredo memory is still clear in my mind.  I was a kid, probably still in the single digit years old, my mom, my Aunt & I went into the Italy themed restaurant at Epcot in Disney world.  As a kid, I was probably pissed I wasn’t back on Space Mountain, but all notion of disappointed disappeared after my Aunt’s order of Fettucini Alfredo arrived.

    Meat Lasagna

    One of the great “family” meals of all time is Lasagna.  As a kid, I loved lasagna night, and being able to dig into that baked pile of tomato-y, cheesy, & pasta, along a tasty slice of garlic bread was great.  Lasagna is pretty easy to make, and in this recipe video I show you how to make one step by step.  Now when I say make one…I mean it, how to make one.  This is one v
