Tuscan Herb Chicken with Artichokes, Peas and Sauce

I received a sample order of Dei Fratelli and knew chicken was on the menu and decided to make a sauce.  What Italian doesn't love a great sauce with Sunday dinner. OMG I can't believe how amazing the tomatoes were and it really made this meal complete.  You will be seeing many new recipes using their products.  

I have my new Tuscan blend coming out and since you don't have it yet here are the spices to use until you get it for your cooking. (this is not my blend but a good blend for you to use.  I am not giving out my secret just yet)

Tuscan Blend

  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons dried marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

I love to serve my family or overnight guests this lovely omelet for a Saturday breakfast. It is a great way to use up those leftovers from the week. You can use any cooked protein in this frittata and would also make a great dinner with a side salad.

Ultimate Short Rib Stew

My husband has something against beef stew and I don't eat a lot of beef.  However, this stew recipes is hearty, flavorful, delicious and Paleo!  This is also a great recipe to throw in the slow cooker before work and enjoy a great meal.  Package the rest up to enjoy during the week or freeze for another day!

Cindy's Tip: If you butcher has the longer short ribs; ask them to slice in half. They are easier to work with and fit in your dutch oven and to serve.

Veal Medallions Over A Pea Salad With A Lemon Sauce

As I was planning my post for Veal Made Easy, the perfect recipe came to me!  Veal medallions over a pea salad with a lemon sauce. I love easy dishes that are full of flavor and perfect for everyday to gourmet.

Many of my favorite ingredients are included in this healthy veal dish.  This recipe and opinions from this post are solely mine. 

I am a proud Italian and grew up in my Nana’s kitchen. We loved cooking our weeknight meals but more importantly our Family Sunday dinners.. She and I would talk about what we should make 3 days before. I cherish all of the memories with her and still love to share them with my readers on www.CindysTable.com. One of our family favorites is veal and that made writing this post extremely exciting to me.

My husband and I love cooking veal dishes and some of the ones you can find on my blog are herb crusted veal chopsveal scaloppini with sage leavesbraised veal shanks with fresh herbs, Veal chop Milaneseveal stuffed meatballs to name just a few.

Many of my friends tell me they don’t care for veal so I always ask if I could prepare a veal dish for them. Each and every time I have they’ve been delighted!  

There are many different cuts of veal and, depending on the recipe, it’s important to buy the appropriate cut. I always call the butcher to make sure the right cut is available.

I love sharing good cooking tips with my readers. Here are the different cuts of veal and how best to use them. 

  • Breasts: The veal breasts are great for slow cooking. I love to prepare the breast in my slow cooker with vegetables and lots of herbs.
  • Chuck: The chuck cut is also great for slow cooking and especially for a stew.
  • Leg: The leg is a perfect cut for roasting. This is considered a premium cut.
  • Loan: Another great choice for braising or stews. Low and slow cooking!
  • Rib Chop: This cut of veal reminds me of a tender steak. You can find these either bone-in or boneless.
  • Rib roast: Great for roasting, perfect for a family gathering.
  • Scaloppini: One of my favorite cuts to prepare cutlet style dishes. They can come thin or as a thicker cut where I would use a mallet to pound nice and thin. These also pan sear up very quickly.
  • Shank: Osso Bucco is one of my favorite braised dishes. I start this dish on my stove top with vegetables, sauce, wine and bay leaves then place in the oven on a low heat for 6-8 hours.

When cooking with a rib roast or rib chops be sure to cook until the internal temperature is 140 degrees F.

Zucchini Fettuccine with Cauliflower Alfredo and Peas

If you know me then you should expect peas in my pasta dishes.  I created this dish using many of my favorite combination of vegetables!  This dish is super delicious.  I bet adding chicken or shrimp to this dish would be very good.

Due to my new love for turmeric; I decided to add some into this dish. Yum.

If you are following a vegan diet then omit the bacon and just sauté the zucchini in oil.  Enjoy

Zucchini Ribbon and Spinach Sauté

Zucchini Ribbon and Spinach Sauté

Serving this dish with fresh grilled fish is a perfect combination.  Zucchini  (courgette) can be grilled, fried, sauteed, or eating raw in a salad.  I grew up eating zucchini and eggs for breakfast and now, I just love making pasta with this versatile vegetable!

**Cindy's Tip!--A mandolin works great for creating ribbons but a vegetable peeler is also a wonderful tool in the kitchen.  You may want to discard the first few as it will be the green only from the zucchini's skin **

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: Paleo Italian Cooking.
