PASTA COOKING CHALLENGE: SPAGHETTI WITH SPICY SHRIMP AND TOMATO SAUCE

  The Pasta Cooking Challenge ended last Tuesday leaving me with mixed feelings. From the one hand I was happy with your response to this post series but on the other hand I was sad that it had to come to an end. As I mentioned in the last post from the Pasta Cooking Challenge, I couldn’t let go this project so I am sharing as promised one last more pasta recipe (I promise, it’s the last one for a…

PASTA COOKING CHALLENGE: SPINACH & FETA CHEESE CANNELLONI

As I am typing this post, there is a heavenly smell coming from the kitchen.

So with no further delay, Spinach and Feta Cheese Cannelloni is the last dish served through this challenge.    It is the first time, I am making this dish and I can’t wait to try it. It took me about 1 hour…

PASTA COOKING CHALLENGE: SPICY RAGU WITH SAUSAGE AND RIGATONI

As I am typing this post from the comfort of our apartment in Athens, I can’t believe that it has been more than six months since we moved. It all seems familiar yet different. It is nice catching up with friends and exploring old and new places.    For our first night here, we stocked up our fridge and decided to cook a hearty meal, yet nothing time consuming or complicated. A spicy ragu with sausage and rigatoni was the…

PASTA COOKING CHALLENGE: VODKA CREAM PENNE

  For this week’s Pasta Cooking Challenge, I chose something more Valentine’s Day appropriate, Vodka Cream Penne. It’s an easy recipe that will take you only 20 minutes to prepare and give you enough time to get ready without slaving yourself in the kitchen.    I have cooked this recipe for the first time for my now fiance a few years back when we were first started dating and it was the ultimate success. I cooked it again this Saturday…

PASTA COOKING CHALLENGE: LINGUINI CARBONARA

        Right on time for lunch or maybe later for dinner, the first dish of the Pasta Cooking Challenge is served, Linguini Carbonara. It is my favorite pasta dish and even though it isn’t particularly difficult or complex there are many variations. I chose to make Carbonara with linguini, instead of spaghetti after watching Jamie Oliver for years and taking on his advice.  It is a classic Italian pasta dish from Lazio Rome, and its name derives from carbonaro, the…
