Basic Marinara
  • Time: 1-2 hours
  • Complexity: easy

Basic Marinara

I normally double or triple this recipe and freeze them in individual containers. I try to make it basic then depending on the recipe I can add more flavors such as wines or chicken broth. When making a marinara/sauce remember that dried herbs hold their flavor and color when slow cooking. If you are using fresh herbs don’t add them in until you are finished with the cooking process and just before serving. If you have fresh tomatoes then use them starting with 3 pounds.

**Cindy’s Tip!: Use with your favorite recipe or divide and store in your refrigerator or freezer. **

Chicken and Mushrooms in a Garlic Wine Sauce (30 minute meal)

I love to make dinner every night but I don't always feel like a fancy gourmet dinner. You can prepare a healthy and delicious dinner for yourself, your family or your friends for under 30 minutes. This is a Paleo Recipe and you can add any side you would like. If you are not Paleo then egg noodles or rice go well. I love to sauté zucchini noodles for a minute in olive oil or just a side salad. Enjoy!

Creamy Garlic Cauliflower Rice

This is my holiday fake out! My family loves this dish but don't realize its cauliflower.  I add in lots of garlic and being Italian we enjoy freshly grated parmesan cheese.  You can certainly omit if you wish!

Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb with Shallot Sauce

OMG - That is the only work I can think of to start this recipe.  I love one pot recipes and this one was  a big hit for dinner.  We had another couple over for dinner and my husband kept asking me, "are you sure that pan is big enough"  Of course honey!  My lodge cast iron pan is Amazing and has not left my stove stop for the entire month of December!  The shallot sauce really made this dish pop with extra flavor.  All of those bits from the lamb along with the shallot, mustard and broth were the perfect combination!

Go ahead and make this! 

BTW! Mostly because it's just Glenn and I (and of course Jake) we don't need to do big shopping therefore I go almost everyday.  Almost everyone I know has told me the meats at Costco are great!  We really had a hard time believing that as we go to specialty meat markets for ours.  Well, I was at Costco with my sister-in-law and she grabbed 2 so I decided to get myself a few.  WOW the meat was amazing!  Very impressed by their meats.  Great for families or entertaining!

My garlic kale and farfalle is a quick pasta dish.  You can also sauté in red peppers, mushrooms, zucchini or any other vegetables you have handy!  This is a perfect meatless dish!

This was certainly the hit of the party!  I served this Paleo Pasta Primavera with my Paleo Pork Roast Loin and it disappeared right in front of me!  

 

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!

Roasted Garlic

Roasted Garlic

As an Italian there is one ingredient that is used in almost all of my meals….. GARLC!! If the recipe calls for 1 clove – I add 2.. I just love the smell of garlic cooking and the flavors really enhance any recipe!

When I find big (elephant) heads of garlic (mostly in the summer months) I buy them in bulk and roast. I normally roast 3 or 4 at a time and use them all week long. There is one that I keep just for me to pick into and enjoy all by myself!

Zucchini Noodles with White Wine Sauce

This recipes reminds me of a simple dish my Nana and I would make together.  I wish she was still here so I could show her my zucchini recipes.   Her and I loved zucchini together and this dish would be a big hit!
