Tomato Crab Ravioli

Tomato Crab Ravioli

Tomato Crab Ravioli | Whenever I want to feel better, I turn to one of my oldest friends. Pasta. He’s a good friend…a really, really good friend. Especially when he’s homemade and joined by a couple of our other best buds – crab, bacon, cream cheese – and smothered in a butter reduction. Come hang out and see what I’m talking about…

Salami Orzo + Tomato Butter

Salami Orzo + Tomato Butter

Salami Orzo + Tomato Butter | We’ve kinda fallen in love with salami. We’re not going to lie. It’s that cured salty, meaty goodness that adds an awesome texture and complexity to any dish. We use it in everything from salads to pasta fillings, and are ALWAYS asked what that little secret ingredient is! Well, we…

Crispy Roquefort Mac & Cheese

Crispy Roquefort Mac & Cheese | Want to know what makes the 4th of July even better? Believe it or not, besides overly-patriotic Toby Keith songs and chest bumping a beer-toting stranger, there is a way. And it comes in the form of elbow macaroni and cheese.

Keeping with the Independence spirit, we decided to once again accept a helping hand from the French (they actually bailed us out during the revolution), and smother our noodles in their Roquefort blue cheese before we tossed it all with good ole’ US of A crispy chicken thighs.

This is a special one. Perfect for the family. Perfect for celebrating America (and your chocolate labrador).

Crabby Carbonara

Crabby Carbonara | There is a special pasta out there that we think you’ll love. If you haven’t heard of it already, it’s called Casarecce. Hailing from Sicily, this little guy is rolled up into a scroll and makes a perfect vessel for your favorite sauce. Or in this case, a sauce stuffed with jumbo crab, egg and cream. Hungry yet?

Bacon Linguine in Pink Sauce

Bacon Linguine in Pink Sauce

Bacon Linguine in Pink Sauce | Have you fallen in love with Linguine yet? We fall head over heals year after year…after year. Yes, she’s fatter than spaghetti. But she’s thinner than fettuccine. She’s a northwestern girl from the Genoa region of Italy. We like that too. She’s pretty, easy to twirl on the fork and always satisfies our pasta cravings. So what could possibly make her better?! Well, a little bacon couldn’t hurt…

Surf and Turf Ravioli

Surf and Turf Ravioli | When you think surf & turf, what comes to mind? I bet it’s some combination of steak and shrimp…or lobster. That’s great and all but let’s shake the tree a bit and see what twist we can conjure up. How about a recipe that’s more aligned with our pocket books and introduces everyone’s favorite ingredient – pasta. Or better yet, stuffed raviolis. This is one you won’t forget.
