Pasta

Homemade Pasta + Tomato Sauce with Parmesan Rind

Homemade Pasta + Tomato Sauce with Parmesan Rind

Boy was this a delicious meal. We stopped by our local cheese shop, and on a whim bought some fresh burrata. When we tried to decide what we would actually eat the burrata with, all we could settle on was some kind of awesome pasta. I set my sights on making a damn good tomato sauce…

Feta-Pistachio Pesto Pasta

Feta-Pistachio Pesto Pasta

It’s been awhile since I’ve experimented with unique pestos, so in order to create a super easy dinner, we made a feta-pistachio with mint and spinach pesto to serve over pasta with a blend of green and black olives. I didn’t keep exact ratios of what we put in, but instead just kept throwing in…

Beer Orzo ‘n’ Cheese

Beer Orzo ‘n’ Cheese

Dustin made a delicious Greek orzo dish with cherry tomatoes, feta, Kalamata olives, and a drizzle of olive oil. Unfortunately, he forgot to photograph it until he was already done eating and I was about 50% done. It’s ok though because it really wasn’t much of a recipe beyond what is previously described. However that meal…

Linguine Con Le Vongole

Linguine Con Le Vongole

I think this might be the first time we’ve ever made pasta without having cheese accompany it. After I mentioned this tidbit to Dustin, he said we should have added some parmesan to the top. But I think we’ll leave well enough alone. There was plenty of bacon flavor (the only really unhealthy part of…

Creamy Manchego Salmon Pasta

Creamy Manchego Salmon Pasta

Erin has this amazing memory from Barolo back in Seattle. It was one of our first meals in the city, and she ordered this rather amazing creamy salmon pasta. Every once in awhile, I like to try and recreate it (or something inspired by it). Today’s adaptation is a creamy manchego pasta with salmon. Yums.…

BLTA Pasta

BLTA Pasta

I know the final product was not what Dustin was expecting when I told him I was making him BLTA pasta, but in the end I think he was pleasantly surprised with how nice and gourmet-feeling this dish came out. Typically a BLT is not what you’d consider fancy, but take all of its standard…

Hummus Pasta

Hummus Pasta

This meal is by far one of the easiest and most recent dinner favorites. It’s really not as much of a recipe, but a great and simple idea you are sure to enjoy. I’m not sure why I never thought of using hummus as a pasta sauce sooner, but it is really amazingly good. Just…

Cauliflower Chicken “Alfredo” Pasta

Cauliflower Chicken “Alfredo” Pasta

Lately things have gotten pretty busy and our homemade meals are few and far between. This is one of those few and far between meals. A healthy creamy sauce with no cream whatsoever and grilled chicken over noodles. Dustin was skeptical of a cauliflower-based sauce, and while I don’t think he was convinced it could…

Cajun Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Cajun Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Dustin has mastered the art of perfect pasta making. He consistently rolls out perfectly textured, perfectly tasting, and perfectly cooked fresh pasta on a regular basis now. While he makes the pasta, I make the sauce. I think we make a pretty good team. We bought Cajun seasoning to make red beans and rice, but…

Cream Sherry Gnocchi with Chanterelles

Cream Sherry Gnocchi with Chanterelles

Last spring when we went on our visit to wine country in Eastern Washington, we came back with a nice bottle of sherry. We finally decided to crack it open for cooking and for sipping after dinner. We wanted a good recipe to showcase the sherry, and since these chanterelle mushrooms we picked up at…
