Sriracha Ramen Soup with Bok Choy and Shiitake Mushrooms

Mediterranean Pasta

Mediterranean Pasta

It has recently come to my attention that I am a hoarder of olives (and craft ribbon, but that’s a whole other story). As I was standing in front of the fridge pondering what to make for dinner, I realized there were no less than […]

Skillet Tortellini in Creamy Pesto Sauce – with Vegan substitutions

Skillet Tortellini in Creamy Pesto Sauce – with Vegan substitutions

We love pesto around here…. and pasta…. and pesto pasta. While I made this as a vegetarian dish last night, I definitely think vegan substitutions would work well. I have seen tofu stuffed pastas at Whole Foods and coconut creamer is a great alternative to half […]
