I first had this Sun-Dried Tomato Feta Pasta Salad from the grocery deli and I was in love at first bite! It was like every flavor in that salad (which is filled with bold flavor) was jumping in turn, hoping to get noticed; keeping my interest and making me want to go back for another bite and another!
Awhile back, way back when, I made Slow Roasted Tomatoes, a technique I stole from Bon Appetit. They are more fabulous than words can say, but when I say slow-roasted, I mean six to eight hours in the oven slow. Something I don’t mind when it’s maybe minus 20 degrees outside (yanno I’m from Minnesoda, you betcha) but that can wear thin in our warmer weather. Then I had an aha moment. What if I made Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes? I figured I’d have all the flavor and a lot less time invested. Win. Win.
Easy Basil Pesto Vinaigrette has got to be the easiest salad dressing ever! As long as you have a little Pesto, that is! It’s such a quick cheat and will be fabulous on all kinds of greens and/or pasta salads. I used it the other day in my Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Apples & Feta and it was a beautiful marriage.
I love me some ravioli and I love me some tomato soup, but what I love even more is this Easy Tomato Ravioli Soup. If you’re in the market for a quick, easy tomato soup wrapped with Italian flavor I think you’ll love this little number.
Every once in awhile I come across a recipe that defies every known law of cooking! That’s this one. Sheet Tray Sausages with Onions & Grapes. It has a handful of ingredients, one admittedly a little strange, that you might have at home. It’s no effort, drop-dead simple and ready in about 35 minutes. And it’s so absolutely delish you’re gonna be flabbergasted by how good it is. Sound like a small miracle? Yep. And we all need small miracles every now and then.
