Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Italian-American in origin, this soup was really misnamed. “Wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian language for 'minestra maritata', a reference to the fact that greens and meat go well together. (Well that’s a good marriage isn’t it?) I looked at several recipes of this popular soup, selected aspects of a few, added some…

Vegetable Lasagna

Vegetable Lasagna by Salad Foodie

Lasagna laced with garden vegetables makes a healthier pasta alternative to traditional lasagna. Don’t let the list of ingredients daunt you. I just consider it my afternoon therapy session. The veggies are cut in small pieces to layer better between noodles. As usual, this is way better the next day than the first (and even 2 or 3…

Four Cheese & Sausage Stuffed Manicotti

Four Cheese & Sausage Stuffed Manicotti by Salad Foodie

Cheese-stuffed manicotti personifies comfort food anytime, but take it up a notch with a cheese four-some and Italian sausage and it’s a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. This was inspired by a few pasta manufacturer web site recipes, but I added my own spin here and there and was pleasantly surprised how well they worked. Oh Mama-Mia, this…

Autentica " Pasta alla contadina "

Autentica " Pasta alla contadina " by CHEFMAURIZIO

Recipe of Calabria. We are in southern Italy. A recipe that my mother gave me and that I have taken over the tradition. Calabria is known for its natural beauty, but also for the use of chili peppers, very spicy in the area. This recipe is therefore a little spicy. Warning to those who do not like. The recipe is simple.

Mediterranean Beef Minestrone Soup

Mediterranean Beef Minestrone Soup by Salad Foodie

This feeds a crowd and then some. Hearty and healthy. Start this slow simmering soup early afternoon to have it ready for dinner, so there's time to develop the flavors. Or better yet, cook a day in advance and let the flavors sing next day. I take time to cut the meat and veggies in small pieces as this is a soup, not a stew, and the…

Linguine with Fresh Tomatoes

Linguine with Fresh Tomatoes by Robyn Savoie

Since we can have great tomatoes year around, we can always enjoy their fresh flavor this way. Remember: Never store your fresh tomatoes in the refrigerator, the cold ruins their taste and texture. Keep them right on the counter so they'll be sweeter and juicier.
