Spaghetti Squash Pizza

Spaghetti Squash Pizza
I saw this spaghetti squash pizza idea and decided to give it a try for myself. I had to tweak the recipe a little for it to work for me, but I wanted to share it because it’s truly delicious! My Hubby said he preferred it to a regular pizza crust. I’m not sure I completely agree, I love my carbs but it was really, really good and super healthy. Continue reading

Green Lentil Pasta Carbonara With Salt Cured Pork

Green Lentil Pasta Carbonara With Salt Cured Pork
I have absolutely fallen in love with Lentil pasta. I’ve been running around telling everyone about it. I buy extra boxes and give them to people I know will feel the same way I do. Like Linda’s pasta last week with the red lentils. My Hubby who is a big pasta lover has even said he prefers the lentil pasta now. So I went out on a limb and made this dish for a small dinner party and didn’t tell my guests they were eating lentil pasta until dinner was almost done. The looks of pleasant surprise were very rewarding. Yes, more converts! If you haven’t tried lentil pasta, please do…you won’t be disappointed! Continue reading

Lasagna Mac & Cheese

Lasagna Mac & Cheese

Mac & Cheese is a real treat and can be made so many different ways. It’s also a great way to use up leftovers.

I added a little love for my honey with a Parmesan cracker heart. Easy and quick to make.  Continue reading

Decadent Lasagna With Bolognese & Bechamel Sauce

This Lasagna is out of this world as Linda and her boys can attest to. My hubby says it’s the best Lasagna he’s ever had and I for one love to eat it. It’s not the easiest lasagna to make but it is the best I’ve ever made. I always make it after I’ve made a traditional Bolognese. This is the perfect dish for a cold Sunday afternoon when you just feel like cooking… Continue reading
