It was one of those weekends when it seems I never stopped but have a hard time thinking of what I did! Seems like forever since I’ve put much effort into cooking but I did try a few new recipes this weekend.
I did make the Spring Pasta Salad. I think the only changes I made were using fig balsamic instead of regular balsamic and the “non-Italian-south-Louisiana” girl in me had me shaking a heavy dose of Slap Ya Mama in there. The recipe turned out great . . made a wonderful cold salad to have on a hot summer day. We talked about how good it would be to add sliced grilled chicken or boiled shrimp and make it a one dish meal.
I also made the Bolognese Sauce. I’m not a fan of red sauce so I’m probably not a great judge for this recipe. Vince tasted it and said “You should like this – it doesn’t taste real tomato-ey”. I did add quite a bit of mixed Italian Herbs. I made a double batch of this and froze most of it so that’s one meal I don’t have to cook when Chad is here.
The best thing I made was this:
I’m guessing the recipe used a bigger pan than I did! This is the recipe I followed and didn’t change anything.
I will definitely fix this when Chad, Nicole and Addie are here. It was delicious!
