Baked Garden Vegetables – 17 March 2018

Linguine with pancetta-mushroom cream sauce; Romano beans – 21 January 2018

This is a dish from the Contra Costa times [pretty sure] on Wednesday the 24th of July, 1996! I can’t find the article on the web, which I guess, given the date, is not surprising. The dish won the top … Continue reading

Spaghetti with defrosted fresh tomato sauce with new mushrooms and hard sausage – 5 May 2017

Spaghetti with mushrooms, pine nuts, and parsley – 23 April 2017

We puzzled over what to have when – forgetting I’d bought a poblano to use up the cream in a “poblano quiche” – and settled on D’s signature pasta, since we had both mushrooms and parsley wanting using. Mushrooms sauteed … Continue reading

Fettucine with prosciutto, pine nuts, parsley, and lemon; kale – 18 January 2017

Lemon kefta tagine; couscous – 19 December 2015

I’d been wanting to make this tagine again for awhile – in fact, wanted to make it all last winter but couldn’t find the cookbook (which appeared back on the shelf… just missing it? It’s thin…). So when R&E donated … Continue reading

Spaghetti with mushrooms, pine nuts, parsley, and pecorino – 16 January 2015
