Hello! Tonight for dinner my family had a simple but delicious pasta dish. I made it with some fresh tomatoes picked straight from my grandmother’s garden. (Thank you grandma Jean!)

Sausage and Spinach Pasta

Hello! I don’t know about you, but I have always loved fall. Fall, the time of golden leaves and the nice breeze. Assuming you don’t live in Arizona. Even though I don’t get any fall-lke weather, I can still enjoy the yumminess that comes with fall. Like my absolutely favorite flavor, pumpkin. Already, I’m getting excited, I just got my first cans of pumpkin for the year and can’t wait to make some baked heaven with them…Until then, I guess I’ll have to return to my pumpkin-less cooking. Earlier this week, I made this delicious creation of pasta, sausage, spinach, mushrooms and (of course)onions.

Minnie Mouse Bowtique Pasta Salad

Hello! This pasta salad is bright pink and with bow pasta, to fit into Salem’s Minnie Bowtique Party. It is fairly simple to make colorful pasta, just boil water and add food coloring rightafter dumping the pasta in. The pasta becomes soft as it absorbs the boiling water, so if the water is blue, youll have blue pasta. For Salem, we made the water pink and added the bow-shaped pasta and got this beautiful result. To make the pasta salad, we added some poppy seed dressing, green onion, olives, corn, peas and onions and mixed it together. All in all, the guests were impressed with this easy, delicious pasta salad. We also served Minnie and Mickey Fondant Cakes and Minnie and Mickey Oreo Pops.

Other ideas could be:

  • Boiling three pots of water and splitting the spaghetti into the pots with different colors, then mixing them together to creat a tricolored spaghetti dish.
  • Adding a bit of blue food coloring to Macaroni and Cheese to create a green-blue result.
  • Using the color and pasta type for a themed festive event and serving pasta or pasta salad.

Hope you enjoyed. Feel free to email me with any questions at redheadedwhovian@gmail.com

Avocado Macaroni and Cheese

Hello! Happy Buddha Day! I will be posting a craft later… Lotus Lanterns… until then, I am sharing a fun little idea you might enjoy…. Avocado macaroni and cheese. Super simple, super fun and super delicious. The avocado made it rich and creamy while the lime caused it to be perfect. I hope you enjoy as much as my family did. This is for about 2 pounds of macaroni and cheese.

Add 4 whole avocados(without the pit and skin so I guess not whole per se….), 1 tablespoon lime juice, some salt and pepper and 2 teaspoons of garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

Add to macaroni and cheese in place of milk. 🙂 Enjoy. It’s that easy.

Bechamel White Sauce

Hello! Oh my, its been an entire day since I posted… :O Last night I made dinner for my family and used this basic sauce as a base for a potato bake I will be posting later. I have used this recipe in a variety of recipes and it has always worked out. Hopefully you get as much use from it as I do.

As for the lack of pictures,I got the most pictures I could at the best quality I could but because it cooks quickly and you are stirring or adding most of the time, it was difficult to get any. Sorry I could not get any more, but hopefully this will be just fine.

Bechamel sauce is really a plain white sauce just waiting for flavor. It is super simple to make and done in minutes to be put on pasta, be baked into something like this potato bake (will be posted soon) or drizzled on a meal. No matter what you use it on, it will always be the same base.
