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 […]

Angel Hair with Creamy Vegan Mushroom Sauce

Angel Hair with Creamy Vegan Mushroom Sauce

This deliciousness came about after I bought a package of mushrooms and then promptly forgot what I was planning to do with them… it came back to me too late… stuffed mushrooms, that was it… Anyway, this was a tasty and filling bowl of comfort […]

Spaghetti Squash with Mushrooms and Zucchini

Spaghetti Squash with Mushrooms and Zucchini

This recipe was borne out of necessity… Mr. Cooks, Littlest and I were less than 24 hours away from heading out of town for a few days and I had zucchini, mushrooms, and a spaghetti squash to use or lose. CSA boxes are great but you […]

Vegetarian Spaghetti Carbonara

Vegetarian Spaghetti Carbonara

Yes, all the recipes here, as of the last few years, are meat-free but I felt compelled to point out the vegetarian status of this dish for one reason:  Traditional spaghetti carbonara includes pancetta. This one, clearly, does not. Instead, I’m using smoked tofu. If you’re […]

Caprese Pasta

Caprese Pasta

I don’t know what it is lately, but I have been craving the simple and delicious flavor combination like crazy!  Sandwiches, salads, pizza… it was only a matter of time before pasta went into the mix.  Good thing I love caprese-anything because I now have […]

Toddler-Approved Pasta Dinner

Toddler-Approved Pasta Dinner

Do you buy canned raviolis and o’s for your little one?  If so, stop it right now!  It’s way too easy (and cheap) to make your own!  My two-year old loved this today and even the 20-year old gave it a thumbs up. Notes: * […]
