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…

Pumpkin Mac ‘n’ Cheese

This pumpkin mac ‘n’ cheese is creamy, dreamy, and easy to make! You can make the sauce in about the same amount of time it takes to boil macaroni. For that reason, this would be a great dish to make on Halloween night when you want a quick pumpkin dinner. Remember when I said in…

Creamy Burrata Pasta

I can’t remember the last time I had so many messages about a single dish! This is the kind of thing I make for myself or my mom when she comes over, easy comfort food. I was astounded to see how many of you wanted this recipe! This sauce is super simple, especially if you…

101 Dalmatians Pasta

“Oh wow” is exactly the reaction I’m going for when testing for Disney Dinners recipes and that’s exactly what Irene and I said when we first ate a bite of this phenomenal pasta. With its delicate leek flavor, garden fresh basil, and salty parmesan cheese, it’s effortlessly amazing. It’s the Serena van der Woodsen of…

Sun-dried Tomato Chicken and Bacon Pasta

I’ve made so many versions of this over the years but this is the best. It’s creamy, with a bright flavor from the fresh herbs and sun-dried tomatoes, and the chicken is so tender. Throw in some bacon and it’s over-the-top delicious. I’ve also added spinach to this in the pasta, which is also delicious!…
