Appetizers & Soups recipes

pasta frittata

Frittata is an Italian version of the omelet. Rather than folding ingredients into an egg pancake, the filling is mixed with the eggs and served as an egg pie, cut into wedges. Unlike omelets, frittata can be served warm or at room temperature.


Monique’s Creamy Cheese Dip

I have a lot of super simple recipes to feed a large crowd, but this one takes the cake. Everyone loves it. Use any flavor sauce like Monique's Marvelous Marinara, Outrageous Olive and Caper, Sundried Tomato, or Rustic Roasted Garlic.


10 Minute Minestrone

I always say, “as long as you have a bag of pasta in your cupboard, you can survive just about anything” and it seems like a lot of people feel that way. I quickly pull together lunch with just a jar of Monique’s Marinara, a few zucchini, some frozen peas, a can of beans and a little Parmesan.
