Mediterranean Fish Stew - Bouillabaisse at Cooking Melangery Different variations of bouillabaisse abound along the Mediterranean coast - every village seems to have its own version - and almost any combination of fish and shellfish can be used. It helps for people to know that bouillabaisse du pecheur was originally prepared using sea water, which was boiled up on the beach while the fishermen were untangling their nets. When the water boiled, in went the fish that were destined for the soup, along with fennel, tomatoes and so on, to cook. Once the work of untangling the nets was done, the bouillabaisse would be ready and the fishermen and their families could sit down and eat. It was only later that the original bouillabaisse underwent the various refinements that we use today. It is worth pointing out that spiny lobster can never be seen as an essential ingredient of bouillabaisse, because it was originally a very simple dish to use up the fish that were either damaged or had not been sold. Serves: 4-6 Ingredients:

How to Make Pesto…………………. | Living in White Bear Lake Every year I plant herbs on our deck and in the garden. I love cooking with fresh herbs all summer long, but I have not done a very good job of preserving my herbs so I can use them in the winter. This year I am determined to preserve some of my herbs for the winter months! Today, I am making pesto with my basil! I grow our basil in a window box sitting on the deck. My Pesto Experiment : The Usual Suspects: Basil, Olive Oil, Pine Nuts, Parmesan Cheese, Garlic, Salt and Pepper. Equipment: Food Processor, Salad Spinner I washed the basil and dried it in my salad spinner. Continue processing while gradually adding olive oil in a steady stream. I only use real parmesan cheese – nothing out of a green can for me. Add grated Parmesan Cheese; pulse to blend. Classic Pesto Recipe - A recipe from Taste of Home website Classic Pesto Sauce Recipe - The recipe I used with the decreased salt amount included. I froze the pesto in 2 tablespoon amounts in ice cube trays for easy use. Happy Cooking!!

Veggie Alfredo Lasagna I… I can’t speak. This creamy comfort food veggie Alfredo lasagna is heaven to me. And I will elaborate on that, I promise, but I can’t move on without talking about what makes this whole thing work: the garlic-butter-Parmesan-flavored, 50-calories-per-serving sauce. You’re like, yeahhhh, you told me about that already. This sauce controls me. Just for a little walk down memory lane, here’s where we’ve seen this veggie sauce make reappearances: Creamy Cauliflower Garlic Rice Healthy Chicken Alfredo Pizza (with a really yummy whole wheat crust) Healthy Fettuccine Alfredo and now this lasagna. Like I said, carbs and cheese. The truth about this lasagna is that even with the carbs and cheese in there, it’s completely jam packed with fresh vegetables (like, more than 5 cups worth of fresh tomatoes, carrots, and spinach) and it’s only got 240 calories per slice. That, and figuring out how I’m going to brave Super Target for the first time. To a comfort food junkie like me, this lasagna is divine.
