Simple Pasta Sauce

25 Mar

Simple Pasta Sauce is a something I came up with when I had planned a nice spaghetti dinner, but soon realized that I had used up my supply of homemade Weekend Tomato Sauce, and had no store bought sauce in my pantry.  Dinner was at risk, I had no backup plan and had to come up with a solution quick.  I looked in the pantry, and much to my joy, I realized I could whip up a yummy sauce that wouldn’t take hours to prepare and cook.

Penne in Almond Sauce

15 Nov

Penne in Almond Sauce is a great weeknight recipe.  I love finding recipes where I can use a store-bought rotisserie chicken.  It makes cooking so much easier, and adds a lot of flavor to the dish.  More then just boiling your own chicken breasts.  The almond sauce is a perfect compliment to the pasta and chicken, giving the dish a light, unique flavor.

Spinach Lasagna Recipe

19 Sep

Spinach Lasagna is a healthy, super flavorful pasta dish that the whole family is sure to love.  A few weeks before my son was born, I decided I wanted to stock the freezer with pre-made dinners that only had to be reheated in the oven or stove top.  This would help us in the first weeks after bringing baby home, and ensure we were still eating well.

Creamy Pasta Primavera

17 May

Creamy Pasta Primavera is a favorite dinner recipe, especially when spring veggies are abundant.  With farmers markets reopening, this is a great recipe to make that truly highlights the best in-season, local vegetables have to offer.  Creamy Pasta Primavera is a cinch to make, taking about 20 minutes total.  This recipe gets even better though, by offering a low calories, low fat, yet full flavor to the traditional Pasta Primavera recipes, with a hint of lemon.

Healthy Mac and Cheese

23 Mar

Healthy Mac and Cheese is an amazing recipe!  Honestly, I think it is the best macaroni and cheese you can make with great flavor, but a fraction of the fat and calories of the old fashioned kind.  This is a true comfort food.  Just remember to taste it for proper seasoning, and don’t overdo it.

Trattoria Spinach Fettuccine

3 Dec

Trattoria Spinach Fettuccine is the kind of dish that small, neighborhood Italian restaurants serve.  It features an intensely flavored double-tomato sauce with tangy feta cheese.  This recipe is so simple with few ingredients that I almost wasn’t sure if it would live up to The Hungry Wife requirements.  I sure was glad that I tried this out, it has a delicate flavor that shines so well.  All the ingredients work together to make a beautiful pasta that doesn’t require any extra seasoning.
