So here’s the thing, I not only use this blog to share recipes that I alter or create on my own, but I also use it to reference when I make my weekly menu at future dates. A lot of times I make really good recipes that are not mine and I don’t feel the need to alter them. The thing is, if they don’t go on my blog, then they get lost in time! In the past two weeks there were 3 of these recipes that were delicious and I don’t want to forget about them. So here they are for you to enjoy, and for me to remember!
Sausage & Pumpkin Pasta
Recipe by: Prevention RD
I love love this blog. She always makes such delicious yet healthy recipes and the pictures are mouth watering! This was another favorite, and I EVEN got my pumpkin hating man to admit he loved it as well.
My Changes: I omitted the sage and used spiral pasta instead of bowties
Mushroom Kale Lasagna
Recipe by: skinnytaste
This meal was a very satisfying vegetarian lasagna, I loved it. I will note that it is a little time consuming because kale takes a while to clean and trim down and then the baking time was 40 minutes on top of all the prep, so you might want to save this one for a weekend. Don’t let that discourage you though because it was nutrition packed and delicious too!
My Changes: Use whole wheat lasagna noodles if you can find them
Bruschetta with Shrimp, Tarragon and Arugula
Recipe by: Giada De Laurentiis
As always, Giada delivers. This was actually my first time using mascarpone cheese also. I was surprised that it wasn’t any more expensive then mozzarella, and it had a nice creamy texture. It did, however, pack quite a bit of fat. Definitely more of a treat then a staple.
