  • Complexity: medium

Paleo Mushroom Arancini

Every Italian gets excited when Arancini's are being served.  I used to make them with my Nana and dip them in tomato sauce.  Or we would serve with sauce at the bottom of a bowl then the arancini on top.  

You can add you favorite filling such as peas, meat, or your favorite combination.  Using wild or cultivated mushrooms really makes these arancini's even more amazing!

Pasta, Sausage and Peas
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Pasta, Sausage and Peas

I love my one-pot recipes and even though I needed a pan to boil the pasta there was no need for a colander nor a platter or bowl to serve the dish.  My beautiful pan served as a perfect serving dish! All of my dried herbs are from Simply Organic!

I used 2 hot and 2 sweet chicken sausage which added amazing flavor to the sauce!  You can also just add the frozen peas into the hot sauce!  This is a 30 minute meal perfect for a family of 4.  

When we enjoy pasta from a box there is only one I will serve my family (and myself). It has to be DeCecco Pasta!  

Tip: You can add in onion, peppers, zucchini or any other vegetables you have handy in the refrigerator.  Go ahead clean out that crisper draw and make this a hearty family meal!

If you love this recipe but don't want to use pasta!  Take a spaghetti squash and poke about 10 holes using a long metal skewer.  Put in the microwave for 10 minutes.  Let cool, slice, remove seeds then take a fork and add strands into the sauce.  Paleo dinner served...

  • Complexity: easy

Pork and Shiitake Mushroom Ragù

Italian Paleo OMG Ragù!  This was simply amazing.  We are at our lake house for the summer and our friends came over. I had a super busy day and while at the butcher deciding what to make the pork butt looked amazing.

I did serve this dish with a creamy polenta.  I am Italian!!  What can I say...  If you want to keep it Paleo then serve with sauté vegetables or sauté garlic spinach (I do that a lot).

Anyway..  Enjoy..

PS:  This freezes well and taste even better the next day!  You can also prepare this meal in your slow cooker.

I just love my one-pot recipes!  Especially when I cook in a beautiful pan then serve form it as well.  You get to scoop up all of the extra flavors.  

You can add any potatoes (sweet as well and just chop them up) but the colorful baby potatoes just looked to amazing and I couldn't pass it up.  Hubby really enjoyed this meal after a long trip to NYC!

Pork Milanese with a Lemon Creamy Caper Sauce
  • Time: 45 minutes
  • Complexity: medium

Pork Milanese with a Lemon Creamy Caper Sauce

My husband wanted veal milanese which I make often over an arugula salad but I felt like changing it up a bit and came up with this super yummy recipe.  You can make it a paleo recipe by using a GF breadcrumb or make your own paleo bread.  You can also use coconut cream for the sauce.  I decided to make a traditional recipe and even make homemade gnocchi to go with the dish, garlic sauté spinach and a vegetable filled salad with homemade dressing!  Glenn just loved this dish and so did I....   Go ahead and give it a try.

Note: In this recipe I made enough for 4 people (we had company that night) so I bought 8 boneless pork loin chops (they seemed small to me) and we actually had 2 left over and it was great for lunch the next day!.

 

 

 

Portobello Ragu
  • Time: 1-2 hours
  • Complexity: easy

Portobello Ragu

This Portobello ragu is hearty and flavorful. I love to serve over zucchini noodles or with sautéed chicken. You can use fresh or dried herbs for this ragu. My recommendation would be to add the fresh herbs in towards the end of the cooking process but the dried herbs can go in right away!

How to clean a portobello mushroom

Holding the mushroom in the palm of your hand and using a small spoon gently go under the stem of the mushroom and lift it out.  Use the spoon and carefully rub the spoon around to remove the gills then discard.  Use a paper towel or clean kitchen towel and wipe around the mushroom.

 

 

Quinoa and Kale Meatballs

  • Complexity: easy

Quinoa and Kale Meatballs

I love quinoa and I know many Paleo followers will say that it's not allowed but I love it!  We don't have it often but I think it's really good for us to eat.  I served these over a quinoa salad full of vegetables then drizzled with EVOO and Balsamic.  Perfect to bring to a summer outing.  That is what I did and everyone loved it.  It went great with my friends Lisa's ribs!

Enjoy

 

(PS - I didn't need the entire bunch of kale for the meatballs.  I cooked it all up and added the rest in the quinoa salad.)

Quinoa, Carrot and Parsley Meatballs

I love quinoa and am really enjoying creating amazing recipes that even my family is enjoying!  These are so good.

Raspberry and Pistachio Semifreddo

Raspberry and Pistachio Semifreddo

In Italian, "semifreddo" means half cold or half frozen.  Semifreddo is typically an ice cream that is almost the texture of a mousse.  The ingredients include part ice cream and whipped cream to create this delicate dessert.  This is made right in your freezer! I love the combination of raspberries and pistachios, but you can be creative on your choices!

Ribollita

Ribollita

Ribollita is a Tuscan stew that is thick and filled with dark green beans and vegetables cooked down, then boiled again. This is my paleo version of this traditional stew. I love using the combination of cabbage, kale and swiss chard but you can also use any other savory greens such as chicory.

Ricotta Meatballs

Today I wanted to use my new KitchenAid®Stand Mixer and was planning on making meatballs. Then I spotted the fresh ricotta, beef and veal at D&D Market

I love to add either parmesan or romano to my meatball mixture! It is so easy grating a block of cheese with my Kitchen IQ grater.

 

Roasted Beet Salad with Dijon Shallot
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Complexity: easy

Roasted Beet Salad with Dijon Shallot

Beets have become wildly popular lately! I get so excited when I see a beet salad on a menu or when at a friend's house and they ask, "do you like beets?" I remember being a little girl and being served the canned beets which have no flavor and the texture is not very pleasant. When you roast beets they really come to life and adding my simple Dijon dressing makes this the perfect starter for any dinner party or just because!

 

*CHEFS NOTE* We all think about the dreaded red beet fingers and hands when it comes to beets. I like to take fresh beets and cut the green off as close as I can get to the beet. Then scrub with water and a brush to really get it clean. Then roast and let cool. Once is it cool, the skin should come off very easily with your fingers. I try to go fast so red isn't everywhere but you can also wear gloves. Another way is to peel the beet while under cold water- again going fast!
