Orecchiette Pasta with Chicken in a Creamy Rosemary Lemon Sauce

Orecchiette Pasta with Chicken in a Creamy Rosemary Lemon Sauce
Last weekend I was craving pasta like a mad woman. Nothing else would have satisfied me other than a steaming hot plate of Italian noodles with some sort of creamy sauce poured all over and in it. So I headed over to Trader Joe's and began wandering around their dried pasta section when my eyes fell upon a package of orecchiette pasta. I'd never had orecchiette before, but always thought it'd be great for saucy pasta dishes since they're basically like little scoop-bowls. So I picked up a package, came home, and decided to make a creamy rosemary lemon sauce for it (one of my co-workers had brought in several dozens of lemons to work from their lemon tree and I had smuggled a few back home). Instead of using a heavy cream base for the sauce, I tried to make it healthier by using olive oil, 1% milk, and whisking in a tablespoon of flour. Congratulations Jessica! Ingredients: 3 Garlic Cloves, minced 1 Large Chicken Breast, cut into 1-inch cubes Juice from 1 Lemon 2/3 Cup Milk 1/4 Cup Olive Oil Related:  PoultryPasta Dishes

Leek and Asparagus Pasta - The Grant Life This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian. Have I told you lately, that I’m sort of a giant fan of pasta? I could really and truly eat it every day of the week. I even like it cold. Yup. It’s true. Leeks are another one of those foods that I remember my grandma cooking when I was younger. After I figured out how to clean and cut a leek, I sauteed them up and added them to the pasta we were having that night. Leeks weren’t the only star of this pasta though. Koroneiki – a full-bodied extra virgin olive oil with robust fruitiness and a sensation of fresh cut grass leading to a peppery finish, perfect for soups and salads. And do you want to know where your olive oil came from? By visiting consumers can track the lot number located on the back of the Varietal to discover their bottle’s special journey and learn about the unique harvesting process and origin of each olive. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty cool. Leek and Asparagus Pasta

Deep Dish Cinnamon Streusel Dessert Pizza Oh, haiyyy. Just gimme a minute to lick the final cinnamon streusel crumbs off my sticky fingers and attempt to be coherent enough to write something. Or get another slice. This pizza, and by pizza I mean subtly sweet thick crust topped with a heavy sprinkling of cinnamon streusel crumbs and drizzled with a warm maple glaze, is so distractingly good. I kind of cringed when I wrote that because I’m visualizing of all you fancypants readers sitting there drinking your tea with your pinkies out who will now judge me. Or more like GET JEALOUS. What I found out relearned at the Pizza Ranch is that dessert pizza is basically the world’s most lovable food. Thaaaa Textuuuure. “But when would I even eat this?” Okay. Eat it for breakfast. I think normal people have it for dessert or something.

delicious red pasta Food - Recipes : Chicken tagine with pomegranate tabbouleh Creamy Avocado Pasta I never liked avocados – until, as a vegetarian, I discovered cheese and avocado sandwiches. Now I find ways to use them in everything. Combining two of my (now) favorites, pasta and avocados, this 15 minute Creamy Avocado Pasta from Oh She Glows was a perfect Thursday evening dinner. Not only was it quick and healthy, but it was a great way to use the avocados I bought on sale. I didn’t have fresh basil on hand, so I substituted for dried, but I would definitely recommend using fresh. The only drawback is, because of the avocado, this dish doesn’t reheat well and needs to be served immediately. It would be a perfect light summer dish. Recipe: Creamy Avocado Pasta Photo by Claudine Morgan Serves 2 What You'll Need: 1 medium sized ripe Avocado, pitted 1/2 lemon, juiced + lemon zest to garnish 2-3 garlic cloves, to taste 1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste 1/4 cup Fresh Basil 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 2 servings/6 oz of your choice of pasta Freshly ground black pepper, to taste What to Do:

French Onion Soup - Cuisineous In the past week, I have made two different soups. Seriously, who does that? At any rate, French onion soup was first up and, my oh my, you’ve got to give the French a lot of credit here. Actually, whilst caramelizing the onions (yup, I said “whilst”) I realized that I actually preferred not to take them down all the way to beautiful dark brown oniony jamishness. I’m going to tell you a secret about the onions I used in this soup. Another break from tradition is the type of cheese I used. Um….the what? The cheese wall. Honestly, when you’re digging into melty cheese, the last thing I’m thinking about is adequate cheese coverage. In other news, I just wanted to let everyone know that my pumpkin latte seemed to go over quite well with a few of the Internet folks. -Allison This French onion soup has surprisingly few ingredients for the basic broth, yet is packed with luscious flavor and wall-to-wall cheese...very important!
