Mixed Seafood Pasta

I love an easy seafood pasta in the summer! This one showcases summer flavors with an abundance of fresh garden tomatoes, basil, and oregano plus a bit of garlic and wine for the sauce. So simple! For the seafood, I used Harvest of the Sea, a seafood medley which includes Asian shrimp, Indian-wild-caught calamari, Argentine…

Greek Chicken Alfredo

This recipe combines two of the best recipes on The Rose Table – my killer alfredo sauce (which takes about ten minutes to make) and my perfect grilled chicken – topped with feta cheese and fresh oregano. This is a perfect summer dish in my book; it’s quick to make and it doesn’t heat up…

Grilled Asparagus Pasta Salad

This is such a delightful summer dish! I absolutely adore grilled asparagus and it’s so good in this lemony pasta salad. Pine nuts and feta cheese take this pasta salad over the top! I love penne for this since the shape complements asparagus spears but you can of course use whatever you want! You’ll want…

Chicken Pesto Pasta

This is the perfect pasta to make in the summer when you want a quick an easy dinner that won’t heat up the house. Here my amazing homemade pesto is tossed with warm pasta and topped with the best ever grilled chicken. It’s a hit every time! If you’ve never made my pesto before, I…

Baked Penne

If you’re looking for a fabulous, simple baked penne to feed a crowd, you’ve come to the right place!  I’ve been watching a ton of Nicki Positano on YouTube the last year and she often features baked pasta with loads of cubed mozzarella in her inspiring Amalfi Coast videos. The last time I saw her…

Mama Rose Table’s Baked Vermicelli

 It’s your lucky day because my mama has perfected her baked vermicelli and she is letting me share the recipe with all of you! This is unbelievably good. It’s a little similar to lasagna in that it’s a layered, baked pasta with ricotta but it’s a little easier and quicker to make than lasagna.  You’ll…

Rainbow Pasta Salad

Wondering what to do with rainbow pasta? Here’s a super simple chilled pasta salad that lets the beauty of rainbow pasta shine. Normally I would add a ton of herbs and veggies to pasta but I found this gorgeous rainbow pasta and I didn’t want anything to detract from its beauty. I’ve been spending a…

Fettuccine Alfredo

My alfredo sauce is simply the best. It’s beyond delicious and cheesy, with a little garlic, a lot of gruyere cheese (so melty! so nutty!), and a hint of freshly grated nutmeg. (Just trust me!) It’s divine.  I don’t actually often cook fettuccine but I was inspired by Kate Winslet’s line in The Holiday, “Shall…

Sausage Medallion Pasta

I have made this pasta a thousand times. Back when I was twenty and twenty-two, I didn’t have much of a budget for entertaining but still wanted to have my friends over for dinner so I almost always made pasta because it’s an inexpensive way to feed people. Nine out of ten times, I made…
