spring pasta with an egg on top

spring pasta with an egg on top

Isn’t spring time magical! Think asparagus and peas and strawberries and mushrooms and EGGS! In fact, I was just marveling over the miracle of an egg. And that made me remember this recipe developed by Tirenne, whom I met while she was a culinary student at Washtenaw Community College. It is spring time in a [...]

Pasta with kale, carrot, and onions

This great recipe came to mind one cold winter day.  I always have carrots and kale in my vegetable crisper and usually make this recipe with lentils.  On this day I used an olive oil I love, Pons.  If you haven’t tried it, you really should. As you know, I love to construct recipes according to Monique’s [...]

I won’t make any promises, but this is my personal strategy when I want to lose a couple of pounds but would never consider giving up pasta. Obviously we are all different and numerous variables contribute to our health and weight, but this works for me. A diet based on what I call my  little, [...]

kasey’s pasta with kale

Think it’s time to revisit one of my favorite recipes from my dear friend Kasey Passen but with kale as the leafy green.  The reason I thought of kale is that while I was in France, it came up that kale is almost non-existent in France. It doesn’t have a name, none of my friends knew what it [...]

Aphrodisiac Pasta

  Here’s an idea for the ultimate Valentine Pasta Recipe. Combine a bunch of ingredients considered to be aphrodisiac, all in one dish: arugula, almonds, asparagus, avocado, basil, broccoli rabe, carrots, fennel, garlic, ginger, pinenuts. I certainly have used each of these ingredients with pasta, but never all together. It will be very, very interesting [...]
