The quality of store bough Tortellini these days, really allows everyone to cook like a star, with actually very little work. Here I use some packaged cheese tortellini to make a simple Tortellini with Mushroom Alfredo Sauce that is tastes awesome and only takes about 30 minutes to cook. The longest time is sautéing up the mushrooms, but it’s time well spent, as you end up with a sauce
This is a debugging block
I discovered Chimichurri sauce a few years ago, and it has become one of my favorite goto sauces or marinades for chicken, steak, pork and even fish - especially when grilled. Chimichurri is a Latin American sauce, treated almost as a condiment, and on pretty much every restaurant table in Argentina.
A favorite of these Flatbread pizzas is the flexibility they provide to use just about any ingredients. Here, I use some butternut squash and sage to create a Fall inspired flatbread pizza, but frankly, I’ll make it all year long. The sweet butternut squash is sliced thin, and then roasted in oven until just tender.
Broccoli soup is not only a great tasting dish, but also one of my favorite ways to get move vegetable into my diet. While I more than happy to have a couple broccoli florrets on the plate, I find them a bit boring. But cooked in this soup, along with a few other ingredients, the broccoli takes on more complexity and flavor.
I cook with Mushrooms & Gruyere cheese frequently, and the bring both together for this Sautéed Chicken Breast with Mushrooms & Gruyere. It is a great way to make chicken breasts, which can be a bit boring into something special. To cook the chicken I use the same technique I use for a lot of dishes, simply searing the breasts off in a pan .
For this flatbread pizza I’m using Asparagus and some caramelized onions to create a sweet and savory combination. I love making 4 – 5 different flatbread pizzas for party’s – even letting guest assemble and bake off their own. It’s a great way to get friends involved in cooking dinner, and with a bit of wine flowing, it turns into a ton of fun.
Flatbread pizza’s are amoung my favorite food to both cook and eat. They are really easy to make, and the options for topping are nearly endless. I’ll make them when I’m looking for a light meal, and they are also great for party foods, where you can make several different versions – even let people make their own.
Just about every time I get take out Chinese food, the next day, I’m making fried rice. I’ve always got some leftover rice from the night before, and fried rice (at least how I make it) is so easy to make with whatever ingredients you have on hand. This version is a Pork Fried rice, that I made with some leftover pork chop’s, and the veggies that I had available in the fridge.
Grilled Pork Chops. Apples. A match made in heaven that you’ll find much simpler to make than you might think. While pork chops can be a bit tricky to cook, because the meat is so lean and can dry out, when cooked well, they are tender, juicy and delicious.
There are a number of high quality prepared pastas on the market today, and tortellini is one of my favorite pastas to cook. This recipe is for a tortellini alfredo with fresh asparagus. Alfredo sauce is super easy to make, really just some reduced cream and a bit of parmesan cheese. But is can also be pretty heavy.
