PostHeaderIcon It’s National Pasta Month………… says the Italian girl

Cucina Antica National Pasta MonthWho am I kidding? Being Italian means that EVERY MONTH is National Pasta Month, but for everyone else, this happens in October. You really don’t know what you are missing though. Along with my family, Cucina Antica is celebrating National Pasta Month throughout the month with delicious, authentic Italian recipes. What better time to try new recipes?? By adding artisan ingredients, like Cucina Antica cooking sauces, you are choosing  a better-for- you option that is full of authentic flavor!!

I have tried a lot of sauces in my, years but, Cucina Antica cooking sauces are made with imported Italian San Marzano tomatoes, no artificial preservatives, lower sodium, no added sugar, no added water, gluten-free and no tomato paste. WHAT? Did your taste buds just perk up? Cucina Antica provides at-home chefs products made through an artisanal production method that allows consumers to cook the sauces without losing any flavor. Guess what else? They are one of few sauces that are non-GMO verified!

Give me red tomato gravy and I can make just about anything with it. Pumpkin on the other hand, not really something I have worked with before. But, I was determined I was going to figure out something to make with it! I would definitely have to ponder this one for a few more days.

PostHeaderIcon #Recipe Taco Chili Cheese Spaghetti

You know those days when you just don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen cooking dinner? Today was one of those days. I was on the hunt for an easy and fast recipe. We were graced with about a foot of snow, which I love but, the shoveling and playing have me pooped out. I think I am getting too old to spend 3 hours playing in the snow. Maybe? NAH!

I stood in front of the pantry, saw the chili and thought, “Hmm, let’s give it a try.” I am sure it’s been done somewhere before but, it’s new to me. Most things that I make stem from, let’s see what we can throw together today. I actually use my blog as a recipe book of sorts. Once I make it, I post it. Usually later on, I will write it in my book if it was a hit with everyone.

I am not a fan of beans but, this was what I had because it was on sale. You can really use either kind. You can use any brands that you like, I listed what I used. This is easy to assemble. You simply layer the ingredients on, as I have laid out below, and pop it in the oven!

#Recipe: Mediterranean Roasted Chicken with Orzo Salad - DelightfulChaos.comThis isn’t something that I would normally indulge in but, I have been trying to move outside my comfort zone when it comes to food. I am an extremely picky eater and it can sometimes be a hassle.  I stepped out of my box and jumped over it on this one! The only part I couldn’t bring myself to eat was the olives. That will be one thing that I don’t think I will ever have a taste for.

The recipe is not that difficult so give it a try and let me know what you think! read the rest of this entry »
