Ingredient: Parmesan Cheese, Freshly Grated

Lemon and Garlic Pasta

Oh man this is one delicious pasta!  I can’t even begin to tell you how quickly this pasta is gobbled up when it’s served at my house. It has everything going for it. Carbs, olive oil, lemon and garlic.  I mean YUMMMM!  Serious…YUM! I’m not sure where this recipe originated from.  It came to my table via my dear friend Craig. This is even more delish if you make the sauce ahead of time (a couple hours) and just let it sit covered at room temp.  More Pasta’s Like This!

Herbed Cheese Polenta

Do you like polenta?  I do!!! The thing that sometimes holds me back from making it is that some recipes have you stirring it constantly like a risotto.  This recipe, from Giada, has you stirring occasionally.  That works for me!  It makes this oh so much more doable.  The flavors in this polenta are really wonderful. I love all the fresh herbs, cheese, butter…I mean “Hello YUM”. This recipe makes a very large batch so I generally cut it in half and it generously serves my family of four. More Family Meals!

Meatballs, Meatballs, Meatballs !!!

There are few meals I love more than Spaghetti and Meatballs.  You know what I’m talking about.  Good Italian pasta, cooked al dente, bathed in a wonderful gravy and topped of with moist, flavorful, beefy meatballs.  Totally a slice of heaven!  Simple, soul satisfying food.  For some reason, I’ve had a hard time finding a great version of this at a restaurant.  Maybe they aren’t the current chic thing for restaurants to be serving, I don’t know. When I tried this recipe for meatballs, I feel instantly, head over heels in love.  These babies were just what I was...

Caesar Mayonnaise Dressing

I love Caesar salad.  Who doesn’t?  It’s light, refreshing, tangy, and let’s face it, all together way delicious.  While I enjoy it all year round, it seems even better when the weather warms up.  This salad is composed of very few ingredients so it is imperative that each part is as delicious as possible.  Making this salad taste like an epicurean home run requires very fresh romaine, fine quality Parmesan cheese, homemade seasoned croutons, and a wonderful dressing.  I make a few different recipes of this dressing, but when I found this recipe, I thought I’d died and gone to...
