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!…

Fettuccine with Mussels and Bacon

We’re taking a trip to Italy today on The Rose Table with a pasta dish inspired by my favorite chef, The Tuscan Gun. This is a very quick recipe. I’ve made this many times for dinner. It takes about twenty minutes. I start with the bacon, set a pot of salted water to boil, then…

The Best Meat Sauce for Pasta

There’s just something about homemade meat sauce that makes a house smell like a home. I love my classic bolognese sauce, but recently I’ve been making this saucier version with half the meat and a secret ingredient: parmesan in the sauce! I really could eat this every Sunday. This is much less thick than bolognese…

Simple Summer Squash Pasta

There’s just something about summer squash! This is a quick, easy pasta recipe with a simple cream sauce, a bit of Pecorino, fresh basil, and beautiful summer squash. I’ve been growing squash in my raised bed garden this summer but even if you don’t grow your own, squash is so delicious (and cheap!) this time…

How to make German Spätzle

This German girl knows spätzle. These little pillows of noodle goodness take just a few minutes to prepare and don’t require an expensive pasta maker. My spätzle maker costs $12 on Amazon and works brilliantly. (I’ll link it here for you.) You basically just whisk together flour, salt, and nutmeg, then stir in beaten egg…
