Oh, this recipe. If you love pasta, if you love basil, if you love a plate of cheesy, creamy, comfort food deliciousness, then this recipe for tortellini with basil cream sauce has your name on it.

Oh, and just for good measure, it’s one of those recipes that has you in and out of the kitchen in about 15 minutes or so.

Spaghetti with garlic bread crumb wine sauce is one of my favorite pasta recipes EVER, and every time I make this one the Southern husband and I look at each other and say, why don’t we make this more often? But absence makes the heart grow fonder, and I am VERY fond of how this looks, tastes, and is so very easy to throw together at the end of a long day. I need this. You need this. Let’s make it!
This recipe for flipped chicken Caesar salad is my new chicken salad crush, and here’s why. You know how when you order a chicken Caesar salad and it comes with tons of the salad on the bottom and strips of chicken on the top, with tons of dressing and great big croutons? I love the taste of all those things, but to that arrangement I say NOPE.
Nope to the big croutons, nope to the lots and lots of dressing, and nope to the lettuce being the star of the show. So…I flipped it. The chicken is now a lovely whole golden sautéed chicken breast and the lettuce is the garnish. There is just the right amount of dressing, and the croutons are crispy little breadcrumbs, all covered in delectable shavings of parmesan cheese. It just goes to show you what can happen when you turn things upside down…let’s make it!
I am a big believer in the non-lettuce version of salad when salad is the main course, which is one of the many reasons I love this easy recipe for warm shrimp salad. A salad packed with juicy shrimp and tender asparagus and shavings of parmesan cheese in a warm buttery white wine dressing? I’ll take that over lettuce ANY day of the week. The fact that it only takes about 15 minutes to throw together is purely a bonus. Because when salad season is upon us, you want your warm and wonderful shrimp salad to be ready as soon as possible. Got your shrimp and asparagus ready? Let’s make it!
What are Cacio e Pepe Potatoes, you ask? Well my friends, they are potatoes – in this case cute little baby red potatoes – cooked with grated parmesan cheese and lots of black pepper, and they are one of the best and easiest things you can do with a baby potato. Cacio e Pepe is usually seen in pasta form (and again, it’s one of the best things you can do with a pot of pasta, and my go-to dinner when I really, really can’t face making dinner, because it is easy and comforting and if there are three things that are ALWAYS in my kitchen, they are pasta and black pepper and Parmesan cheese). But back at the potatoes, this is a comfort food side dish with just the right amount of peppery kick, and you need to try these. Let’s make them!
