Bowtie Pasta with Shrimp and Spinach

This is a great party recipe that will be enjoyed by all.  I love using frozen cooked shrimp for this pasta dish.  This pasta salad is great way to use up fresh vegetables you have cut up in your refrigerator.  Add your favorite fresh herbs!

 

Chicken, Sausage, Spinach, Artichoke over Pasta

Chicken, Sausage, Spinach, Artichoke over Pasta

I was about to go grocery shopping and knew that I should have lunch first! Rule #1 eat before you go food shopping… I had all of these ingredients handy and it is cold outside so this was a perfect lunch for me!

I make this type of dish often to use up left over chicken and sausage or you can purchase fresh and sauté for this delicious Paleo recipe. You can also use zucchini if you have some handy!

The combination of chicken sausage, spinach, artichokes with herbs and garlic make this an amazing pasta dish for lunch or dinner.

I sometimes use spaghetti squash, our favorite pasta! There are also some great gluten free pastas available now!

For the petite diced tomatoes I had a can with zesty jalapeños and it really gave some extra flavor to this lasagna. Give it a try!

 

Homemade Ravioli with Ricotta Cheese and Spinach Filling

Homemade Ravioli with Ricotta Cheese and Spinach Filling

Since most of our diet is Paleo or Gluten Free. We do not suffer from Celiac but love how we feel eating this lifestyle. When I decide that pasta is on the menu then I go all the way and make it homemade. I love making my own pasta and ravioli's. I have the attachments for my kitchen aid and it works great. As a home chef it is all the equipment I need to make fresh pasta.

This is what I did to create this recipe. I happened to have fresh spinach in the house and decided to use it in the raviolis with ricotta cheese and I even added a little shredded mozzarella since I had about 1/2 cup left in the refrigerator.

I even have one of those cute ravioli to give ridges that made me happy! You can use a knife but I love having fun kitchen gadgets. Enjoy

Paleo Cast Iron Pizza with Chicken, Artichoke and Spinach Pizza

I go on these kicks and after our amazing trip to the Virgin Islands making a pizza sounded so good!  I had my cast iron pan out after making my husband my paleo german apple pancake so it seemed like a great idea to make a pizza in this pan!  WOW we loved it.  Normally when I make a pizza we like it thin but this was a nice change.

Penne with Artichoke,Tomatoes and Spinach

Recently I have been experimenting with different recipes and I wanted to take one of my signature Italian dishes and reconstruct them so anyone can enjoy. I took a typical penne dish and put a vegan and also vegetarian twist on it. My family loved this  meal and were shocked that it was vegan!

Quinoa Chicken and Spinach Soup

I always make a salad when using quinoa but today decided to make soup!  I just love grabbing a rotisserie chicken from the store as it makes weeknight meals so easy and delicious!  

A big thank you to Shop Rite, E. Hartford, CT for the ingredients to make this recipe!

Sauté Spinach and Kale topped with Caramelized Shallots

I was watching the foodnetwork and Bobby Flay was making this recipe and OMG it looked so good but I wanted to make it a little healthier so this is what inspired me.  I just LOVE shallots and OMG was this side dish amazing. I served it with my Stuffed Turkey and enjoyed this dinner with my lake neighbors and hubby.  

My husband pared this dish with our favorite Peju wine!

Enjoy!

Cindy's Note: You can make the shallots up to a day in advance and just store in the refrigerator until you made the spinach and kale.  (that is what I did)

My Sautéed Shrimp with Spinach, Tomatoes and Penne is a great meal to prepare together with your kids, friends or spouse. The beautiful colors and flavors make this a perfect lunch or dinner!

You can simply omit the pasta if you are following the paleo diet or use gluten free pasta, spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles!

Spinach and Smoked Salmon Salad with Lemon Dill Dressing

We are a very social couple and many times we have last minute dinner parties. Luckily I had all of the ingredients handy and created this delicious salad and again it looked gourmet but took me under 10 minutes to prepare!

*CHEFS NOTE* If you are at your local fish market and smoked salmon is on sale then pick up a little extra then divide and freeze for later! I love surprising my husband with a smoked salmon and scrambled eggs breakfast after a long business trip!

Spinach Artichoke Rolls

This recipe was inspired by my love for artichokes! As I was creating this cookbook, these rolls just came together and was not on the original recipe list! I was very surprised that it came together so well and the first bite was breath taking. Go ahead and make these but beware it is hard to stop eating them!

 

Stuffed Spinach and Ricotta
  • Complexity: medium

Stuffed Spinach and Ricotta

You can do everything for this meal in one pot! I used my Le Creuset Braising Pan.

During my travel from Tuscany to Rome this dish was on many menus and it did not come with pasta. This is a light and healthy recipe and it is Gluten Free. If you are looking for a paleo recipe version you would have to omit the ricotta cheese and perhaps add sausage, mushrooms or other ingredients and pulse in your food processor.

I recently made these yummy Stuffed Spinach and Ricotta for company upon our return and served as a primi. I was extremely pleased that everyone enjoyed them including one guest that admitted to not liking spinach but I believe enjoyed about 4 balls! That always makes me happy!

I hope you enjoy these as much as we did.

I love to do my shopping at D&D Market! I used store brands for ricotta and frozen spinach which made this meal affordable and delicious!

Turkey Burgers with Spinach and Herbs

I love these turkey burgers. I recently served them with my pancetta braised cabbage recipe. These paleo recipes go very well together! I used frozen (thawed) spinach and dried herbs to make this burger easy but very favorable! Enjoy

 

Turkey, Spinach and Herb Pie Wrapped with Acorn Squash

Turkey, Spinach and Herb Pie Wrapped with Acorn Squash

This recipe is a fancy name for an Italian meatloaf made in a spring form pan but it really works and the acorn squash really gives it extra magical flavorful and looks beautiful.

Feel free to use frozen spinach if you have it handy. Just thaw and squeeze well with a white paper towel or clean towel.
