Goat Cheese Spaghetti Bake

We never plan on making spaghetti bakes (we’re either out of penne or one of us accidentally dumps spaghetti into the pot) but they always turn out SO good and it’s nice to switch things up! Just like baked ziti this is a super easy meal to prepare and is great made ahead. Recipe notes:Continue reading “Goat Cheese Spaghetti Bake”

Broccoli Mac & Cheese

Okay this turned out SO good! I can’t get over how easy this sauce is compared to a roux and how creamy it turns out. The broccoli makes it a one pot kinda meal which is very much my style. It would also be super good with bacon bits or a little ham but hasContinue reading “Broccoli Mac & Cheese”

Easiest Pesto Pasta

When we first starting exploring the yard at our new house, I noticed a few sad looking basil plants along the potato patch. Side note: I’ve learned that chickens kind of eat everything—like my chives, baby Swiss chard, baby lettuce—but only when they feel like it. So they miraculously left my plants alone for weeksContinue reading “Easiest Pesto Pasta”

Easy Beef Stroganoff

My dad is from Italy and my mom is from England so there are a lot of things I didn’t eat growing up (like chicken parm, most kinds of casseroles, and pasta dishes like beef stroganoff). It’s been super fun to explore new things so I’m always stoked about what we’re eating! Recipe notes: IfContinue reading “Easy Beef Stroganoff”

Creamy Shrimp Alfredo

Ooh baby did this come out good! This recipe was inspired by my creamy spinach and chicken pasta and it sure as heck won’t be my last creamy pasta recipe. I used to make a roux from scratch for cream sauces but using evaporated milk and cornstarch is SO much easier and faster. For aContinue reading “Creamy Shrimp Alfredo”

Easiest Turkey Meatballs

OMG. I’m typing this seconds after my husband told me these are the best meatballs he’s had IN HIS ENTIRE LIFE! Talk about a kitchen victory! And here’s the thing! Turkey things like meatballs and burgers have a reputation for being sub par compared to the beef versions. I get it—I’ve had my fair shareContinue reading “Easiest Turkey Meatballs”

Creamy Spinach & Chicken Pasta

If you like spinach ravioli, you’re going to love this recipe! It’s pretty much a deconstructed version of it. It kind of happened by accident while I was testing out an Alfredo sauce and was going to add chicken and broccoli. I was 90% done with the sauce when I realized we were out ofContinue reading “Creamy Spinach & Chicken Pasta”

Easiest Macaroni & Cheese

OMG. I hit the jackpot with this macaroni and cheese recipe! I’ve always loved homemade mac and cheese, but I used to make a roux from scratch which involved mixing oil and flour and then adding in a little bit of milk at a time for forever! A roux makes a great base for anyContinue reading “Easiest Macaroni & Cheese”
