Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Sunday, July 6, 2014, In : Creative Cooking 


Spaghetti & Peppers

My Italian Mother always says you can eat spaghetti anytime. She's right, because my granddaughter eats it for breakfast, she likes her carbs and her meat. Now I don't always add meat to my sauces sometimes I prefer to use them as bases for other things such as soups, stews and pizzas.

Adding different ingredients to your red sauces adds texture and flavor, creating a whole another level of richness and tasty sauce.
Here are some of the things you can add to make your red sau...

Cranberry Salad with Sweet Yellow Bell Peppers, fresh mushroom slices, blue cheese crumbles and a balsamic vignette dressing.

Serve with any good hearty bread, maybe a glass of red wine, and a good cup of coffee. You have a nice light dinner, if you want more protein add some grilled chicken or shrimp. Now doesn't that sound healthy, simple and delicious? Now if you must be a little naughty for des...

I make my gravy with cream, butter and cream of chicken soup with a dash of this and that.

The crusts are organic too, but not made by me, I forgo that for someone else to do as long as the quality is good.
