Goat Cheese Pasta with Meatballs

Goat Cheese Pasta with Meatballs
Am I the only one that can never cook the right amount of pasta without having five cups leftover?  That’s how this goat cheese pasta with meatballs came about. I am the leftover queen!  A quick search in my fridge and I found an unopened goat cheese.  Then I pulled out the leftover pasta, some flour, and almond milk. One way I save on groceries...

Pasta Frittata

Pasta Frittata
Pasta Frittata is a simple dish that can made with any pasta or veggies. Bucatini pasta is pasta that has a tiny hole in the middle and it’s bronze cut, which means it has extra texture on the outside and held all that delicious cheesy sauce together. What is Hearts of Palm Pasta? It’s not pasta.  Yes, it looks like pasta, but it will never...

Pasta Birds Nests

Pasta Birds Nests
Happy Friday!  I love finding inspiration online, and my friend Erica pointed me to an Instagrammer who I recently started to follow, and she said “Biz you have to make these!”  They are like pasta birds nests! I decided to switch her recipe up just a bit – I subbed in one cup cooked pasta and one package of Natural Heaven Hearts of Palm Spaghetti. ...

Cacio e Pepe

Cacio e Pepe
I started feeling a bit achy on Monday.  A bit of a cough, but didn’t feel too bad.  Yesterday at work?  I must have sneezed 100 times and munched on cough drops all.day.long.   It’s the kind of sick where you don’t necessarily need to stay at home in bed, but you just feel blah.  It was the last day of the month at work which...

Stuffed Shells

Stuffed Shells
I had to laugh when I was waiting for the train yesterday to go to work.  It’s the middle of October, leaves are starting to change yet the weather was around 76 degrees.  I saw some women in sundresses and flip flops, while others had already made the fashion fall turn and were wearing UGG boots, sweaters and scarves. I ate a banana on my...

Skinny Mac N Cheese

Skinny Mac N Cheese
I am happy to say I made it a whole week without going to the grocery store – well, except for coffee creamer, but that’s not too bad!  I relied on my pantry/fridge/freezer and it just goes to show that if you think outside the box you can always come up with good eats with what you have on hand.  It’s just that sometimes, dishes...

Healthy Homemade Pasta

Healthy Homemade Pasta
It’s so weird to me sometimes that a few simple ingredients can create such delicious food.  Take flour, salt and eggs and a splash of water.  What have you got?  Homemade pasta! So we’ve declared Thursday nights as “spin the fridge wheel” and use up/eat up just what is on hand.  And I didn’t cheat all that much!  Last weekend my store had roma tomatoes...
