    Chicken Penne Pesto

    I love a good chicken pasta recipe.  Both ingredients are easy to cook, and are great blank canvases that work with all kinds of other flavors.  Here I show you a recipe for Chicken Penne Pesto, which has become a staple in my house.  Pesto sauce is one of my favorite pasta sauces, for it’s great basil/garlic flavor, it’s texture, and of course the vibrant green color.  I show you how to make a

    Pumpkin Ravioli with Brown Butter Sauce

    Ravioli is one of my favorite pastas, and this recipe is for a Pumpkin Ravioli with a Brown Butter Sauce that is one of my all time favorites.  It’s a great dish for the Fall, but frankly I’ll cook it just about any time of year.  In this particular version, I don’t show you how to make the ravioli itself, as I’m using store bought (and there many great options out there), but I will show you t

    Ten Tips for the Perfect Spaghetti

    Now I’m not here to dismiss anyone’s favorite spaghetti.  I know we all like Mom’s or Grandma’s version, and know in our heart of hearts, theirs is the best.  I understand that that notion, and I’m fine if that’s your stance.  However, Grandma’s not always around to make you a plate of the perfect spaghetti.  Sometimes we’re on our own, and what’s a person to do?  Go Spaghetti-less?  That’s not

    I have a number of simple, fast pasta dishes, in my bag of tricks, but it probably doesn’t get any simpler than store bought ravioli and a 4 ingredient sauce that takes about 8 minutes to make.  Impossible you say?  12 minutes to an elegant, tasty dinner on the table?  I say Yes You Can ;-)...and I'll show you how to do it in this recipe video.  The main key is to use store bought ravioli, and
