Lemon Basil Pasta Salad

It's been a long, fun-filled last two weeks. Rob & I just got home on Tuesday, and after three days back at work I'm back to this lovely corner of the internet I call home. We roadtripped to Montana to meet with my family in Great Falls, traveled to Havre for my uncle's wedding, then… Continue reading Lemon Basil Pasta Salad

Shrimp Fajita Pasta

My pursuit of a good pasta substitute continues today. I've tried just about everything: zoodles, spaghetti squash---but this is the first time I've tried pasta made out of something other than sticky, glutenous carbs. While perusing the aisles at Trader Joe's last week, I found a red lentil pasta. Intriguing. I've had whole wheat pasta… Continue reading Shrimp Fajita Pasta

You've got… Continue reading Barbecue Ranch Chicken Casserole

Too flakey? Bad at commitment? Or maybe I just set really unattainable goals. Oh well. There's no failing if you… Continue reading Parmesan-Crusted Fried Tortellini

Rigatoni with Sausage and Collard Greens

I was on a mission. A mission from the food Gods. A mission of culinary extremes. A mission above all missions. I was set and ready to go wherever my wheels would take me...to get Swiss chard? Yes. Swiss chard. For whatever reason, that task was seemingly impossible. Chard has disappeared from the lavish mist… Continue reading Rigatoni with Sausage and Collard Greens
