Broccoli Pesto

I love a good pesto…but I also love to tinker with recipes, and it’s in that spirt that I made this broccoli pesto. Traditionally, pesto is a very tasty combo of ground, garlic, pinenuts, parmesan cheese, olive oil and…basil. I love it. But I also love broccoli. And I really love the health benefits of eating broccoli, so I fiddled around a bit, and started make broccoli pesto essentially,

Penne Pesto

I’m not sure why Penne Pesto has become such a classic combination, but I do know that it’s a damn fine pasta recipe.  I’ll end up making pesto every few months (generally in large batches and freezing some), as it’s really easy to make, tastes great, and can be used in a ton of different ways.  For this recipe, I’ll show you how to toss the fresh pesto sauce with some penne pasta, a bit of oli

Spaghetti with Shrimp and Pancetta

Spaghetti, Shrimp, Pancetta…how you can go wrong?  Pasta dishes that are simple, and seem simply “thrown together” are often my favorites, and this recipe for Spaghetti, Shrimp and Pancetta is exactly that.  Both spaghetti and shrimp, take little more than 10 minutes to cook, and not much longer for pancetta, or bacon if that’s what you have.  That means that within about 30 minutes, you can ma

Truffled Mashed Potatoes

I’ve published recipes for mashed potatoes before, but I just can’t stop, because truth be told, they are one of my favorite comfort foods. I make them all the time and everyone loves them (who wouldn’t love my cooking), but sometimes I want to take the humble mashed potato and...

Spaghetti Arrabiata

Next time you’re in the mood for a bit of heat on the dinner plate, let me suggest this Spaghetti Arribiata.  Arribiata, in Italian means “angry”, and this recipe certainly fits the bill.  The sauce is essentially a simple marinara sauce, that gets spiked with some hot chili flakes and a bit of red wine vinegar.  The result is a good amount of heat and tanginess, that goes really well with the

This Lemon Spaghetti recipe is just that. While the rich tomato based spaghetti recipes are great, sometimes you can use the simplest ingredients to enhance
