Mushroom, Sausage, and Kale Pasta

Mushroom, Sausage, and Kale Pasta

This mushroom, sausage, and kale pasta is hearty, earthy, and incredibly light considering it’s in a cream sauce. I know what you are probably thinking, sausage in a cream sauce, it must be heavy. Surprisingly not, considering that I messed up my measurements, and didn’t have a boat load of cream sauce to cover this pasta. Let’s call it a happy accident, the ratio of sauce to filling to pasta is perfectly balanced, letting the ingredients shine without weighing it…

Greek Lamb Meatballs

Greek Lamb Meatballs

Put them in a pita or on side of a salad, these Greek lamb meatballs are flavorful, moist (sorry I know we all hate that word) and dangerously delicious.

Pasta Peas and Bacon

Pasta Peas and Bacon

Let be real a bad dish never started with bacon. In all seriousness though Pasta, Peas, and Bacon hits close to home and is ridiculously easy to make. So why is it called pasta, peas, and bacon? Well those are 60% of the ingredients… that’s right there are only 5 ingredients. That makes 3 easy recipes in a row, don’t worry my 3-hour Bolognese, and Asian short-ribs are coming soon. Growing up in the 90’s in a non-Italian household pasta…

Moules Frites (Mussels in White Wine and Pancetta)

Moules Frites (Mussels in White Wine and …

Moules Frites, can you name a better combo? Here I go again throwing fancy phrases at you. Moules Frites is just the French way of saying mussels and fries. Now there are many iterations of this dish such as Moules marinière (marinara sauce) or a Moules à la crème (cream sauce). In my option the best by far is mussels in a white wine and garlic broth. Here, I added an additional layer of pancetta which gives the broth an…
