Italian

February 23, 2017

I'm not sure if you can tell by now, but I have a subscription to Food Network Magazine.  It's where I get a lot of the recipes that I post.  This month's issue was all about Italian food.

 

I love Italian food!  Pasta, cheese, yummy sauces... I couldn't wait to dive in and find some delicious recipes for my family. I quickly found two (so far)... and they passed the Avie test!

 

Side note: I prefer to find food in the "Weeknight cooking" section because, let's be honest, I don't have a ton of time to putz around in the kitchen these days.

MEATBALL MARSALA

 

Meatballs!  Very easy recipe contains mashed potatoes, mushrooms... and meatballs.  The only change I made to this recipe was using 1/2 cup of white wine and 1/2 cup of chicken broth, in place of the Marsala wine (which is red).  Avie ate this with a side of steamed broccoli because I always want to get her those veggies!

 

I try to buy grass fed and/or pasture raised meats when possible.  I have yet to blog about this topic, because I'm still learning, but the premise is all about natural, clean eating.

 

BAKED SPINACH RAVIOLI

 

What's easier than a package of refrigerated ravioli and thawed, frozen spinach in a cheesy sauce?  Nothing. 

 

Avie is an odd kiddo and isn't a fan of old fashioned mac and cheese- which is totally fine with me- but, she will eat a more "gourmet" version like this one.  Again, I try to eat clean and natural when possible, so I go for the cheese made from grass-fed cows.  It IS more expensive, but that's really the only adjustment I made here.
