Eggplant Rollatini with Ricotta and Kale
There’s nothing quite like beautiful fresh eggplant slices wrapped around cheese and baked till gooey perfection! I always love to double up the recipe, because it freezes really well! Bake one tonight and freeze the second one for another time!
Spaghettini with Portabellos and Pesto
In this recipe, I chose to use Spaghettini, which is slightly thinner than traditional spaghetti because I wanted something more delicate to make the other ingredients stand out. And boy did they ever! The pan fried portabellos and leeks paired with a robust fresh basil pesto –perfect dinner!

Peanutty Cucumber “Noodle” Salad
This is a great refreshing “noodle” salad – where the noodles are made entirely of ... cucumbers!! Really yummy without the guilt!
Individual Mac ’n Cheese
This is comfort food at its best! The crispy panko topping, the warm silky béchamel sauce and the ooey gooey cheese – yummm... The secret to my perfect mac n cheese is the mozzarella cubes that I stick into the final dish whole – they add serious melting goodness! If you would like to prepare these in advance, you can prepare them up to 2 days in advance. Do not bake, cover very well with foil and refrigerate. When you are ready just bake them at the last minute but instead of 20 minutes you may need 35 minutes as they will be cold from the fridge.
One Pot Pasta With Tomato and Bok Choy
This is a really cool trick to cook your pasta! With this recipe you do not need to boil your pasta in a separate pot – it just cooks directly in the sauce! I even added in some bok choy for a crisp green, that steams in the sauce while your pasta cooks!

This is a really nice fresh and tasty pasta dish for late Fall when both kale and squashes are in season.

Zucchini Noodles in Pesto
The combination of zucchini noodles with pesto feels so light and fresh, but still gives you the feeling that you are eating real pasta! You will need a spiralizer to create the zucchini pasta, if you do not have one you can use a vegetable peeler to create long strips of zucchini.
Zucchini Noodles in Garlic Butter Sauce
This is a really decadent pasta dish – even though there is no actual pasta in it! My trick here is to add a touch of cornstarch to the zucchini to thicken up the sauce. You will need a spiralizer to create the zucchini pasta, if you do not have one you can use a vegetable peeler to create long strips of zucchini.
