Rigatoni in a Vodka Sauce

Rigatoni in a creamy vodka sauce and garnished with basil

There’s not a lot that can compete with my love of pasta. I love it in all shapes and forms, and I love trying out new sauces to go with them. The one I tried most recently was pasta in a vodka sauce and OMG, guys. It’s incredible. It only takes a few minutes to whip up (I […]

Taco Stuffed Pasta Shells


I love stuffed pasta shells. I mean, shells of pasta just waiting for you to cram them with all your favourite things.Really? What’s not to like?

Spaghetti Marinara

Marinara Sauce

Marinara sauce has a very interesting history and it’s one that I had to do a little research on. Like most home cooks, it’s something I’ve made at least a hundred times, but what’s the difference between this and regular old spaghetti sauce? To me it seemed to be that you start with a mirepoix, that […]
