Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake

Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake

Last week I created my version of a Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake. Moore’s Marinades sent me a bottle of Moore’s Original Buffalo Wing Sauce and I wanted to do something other than just wings. I was thinking of Caitlan, D and the twins when I decided to make this recipe. The twins are not always good about eating their veggies so I wanted to get some extra vegetables in the … Continue Reading →

Pulled Pork Pasta Recipe

I love watching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on Food Network. The other day I was watching and one of the restaurants they featured, Highway 61 Roadhouse, shared their BBQ Spaghetti. This restaurant is actually here in St. Louis but I had not heard of it. The rest of the menu looks amazing too so my family and I will be sure to check it out soon and report back to … Continue Reading →
Baked Mostaccioli in Copper Chef

Baked Mostaccioli in Copper Chef

Who doesn’t love oven baked pasta with lots of ooey gooey cheese on top? This is one of Hubby and T’s (he still isn’t here, but he loves it) favorite meals. What was great about making it this time is that I only used two pots. One was to boil the pasta, everything else I did right in the Copper Chef pan that was sent to me. (disclosure: I was … Continue Reading →
Beef Florentine Stuffed Pasta Shells

Beef Florentine Stuffed Pasta Shells

  Growing up my mom would make stuffed shells only once or twice a year but I remember loving them so much. Now as the adult I make them too, but still only once or twice a year. I still love them so much and so does my family. They take a little extra work but not so much as to avoid the recipe. It is actually pretty simple and … Continue Reading →

Pepperoni Caprese Pasta Salad Recipe

Pepperoni Caprese Pasta Salad Recipe

Pasta salad is always a winner with my friends and family as a side or a full meal solution. I like to try to come up with new ideas for it and I thought adding the Tyson Pepperoni I was trying out as a part of Collective Bias (disclosure – I was compensated for this post) was a good place to start. It made me think Italian, so then I … Continue Reading →

Robyn’s Artichoke Pasta Salad with or without Bumble Bee Tuna

I tweeted out a pic and mentions of the artichoke pasta salad on Christmas Eve and had several folks who asked me to share the recipe. This is one of my favorite pasta salad recipes. The original came from Cooking Light magazine and I posted one of my adaptations of it, Robyn’s Artichoke Pasta Salad, in 2009. As with most of my recipes, I keep changing and modifying them each … Continue Reading →

Mac & Cheese Made with Greek Nonfat Yogurt by Top Chef Richard Blais

I know macaroni & cheese is a big favorite with many people on the holidays. When the folks at Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt sent me a selection of recipes created by Top Chef Richard Blais the mac & cheese jumped right out at me to share with you all. While this recipe does still have some fat in it, overall it is a lower fat recipe than what you generally … Continue Reading →
