canadian bacon, cauliflower, and parmesan

Arugula and Pea Pasta

Our student intern, Kate Grimaldi, was headed to her farmers market for inspiration. She and her mom marveled at all the fresh greens and were inspired by the peas, lettuces, and lemon. They created a new, light, fresh pasta recipe perfect for a summer dinner!


quick and healthy bolognese

This quick, healthy and delicious recipe was designed for Al Dente Pasta's Whole Wheat Fettuccine with flax. Peace, love and pasta!


dennis’ veggie & chicken sausage ragu

Al Dente Pappardelle with Rabbit a la Moutarde

al dente® papparadelle with rabbit in mustard cream sauce

My mom is French, so I grew up eating rabbit and I love it. But that’s not to say I cook it myself, so last night was a real treat. Tammy’s Pappardelle with Rabbit in Mustard Cream Sauce took me back so quickly to my Mom’s Lapin a la Moutarde, I could hardly stand it.

pasta with chicken, sundried tomatoes and escarole

It’s no secret. I am not Italian, but make some pretty good pasta. (At least that’s what many people tell me.) And, I’m not a professional cook, but can get some pretty tasty pasta dishes on the table, often in a matter of minutes and usually using random ingredients from the fridge.

This is a recipe adapted from Showcase magazine. It originally called for lasagna sheets, but I found it easier to make with fettuccine, or pappardelle, and just as delicious. I quadrupled the recipe for a fundraising dinner for 85 people and every person asked for the recipe. Great for a crowd!
