Spicy Truffle Cheese Sauce & Grain Free Butternut Squash Gnocchi

I'm a huge fan of cooking shows. I'm always in awe and inspired by the beautiful food professional chefs make and the techniques that they use. It's so much fun to watch them cook and then I can go do it myself!

 is healthy and easy to make!

What I love the most about watching talented chefs' work is that they describe the texture and taste of a finished product. Gnocchi is supposed to be light and fluffy and a good sauce should have a complex depth of flavor, so that's what I worked to achieve in this new healthy recipe. Luckily, using gluten-free and grain-free flours you can't overdevelop the gluten when you knead this dough, and the finished product is pretty amazing! The creatively crafted Castello Double Creme Truffle Cheese is incredible on its own but combined with some heat and herbs, it makes a sauce to die for.

The flavor of truffles in Castello Double Creme Truffle Cheese is earthy and beautiful. You will love this cheese!

Grain-Free Homemade Pasta with Mezzetta Pasta Sauce, gluten-free, nut-free

Years ago, I traveled to Italy and had the best time of my life visiting, Florence, Rome, and Venice. I loved everything about Italy, the history, the architecture, the food, the espresso and the people. It's just wonderful there and I hope to go back some day.

One of my favorite memories of the trip is how at the restaurants we would sit at long tables with the locals and the waiters would pass family style plates of antipasto, pasta, and many other beautiful dishes for everyone to share. I will never forget how fun that was and how good the food tasted.

When I heard how Mezzetta Napa Valley Homemade pasta sauce is made it reminded me of my time in Italy and the wonderful homemade food I enjoyed. I couldn't wait to try this new gluten-free pasta sauce!

I found Mezzetta's pasta sauce at my local grocery store, brought it home and cracked it open. Immediately you see the olive oil on the surface and the thick chunks of tomato. I ate a big spoonful right out of the jar. Even cold it was delicious!

Incredible Grain-Free and Gluten-Free Homemade Pasta Noodles that hold together and taste delicious!

My go to Italian meal is always pasta, but lately I'm eating grain free and I haven't had a good plate of pasta for ages.
Mezzetta pasta sauce inspired me to make my new Homemade Grain-Free Pasta. I wanted to make a grain-free, great tasting egg noodle that has the strength to simmer in the pasta sauce and it worked! The new pasta and the sauce made the perfect family meal. My family loved it! 

Warm Gluten-Free Pasta Salad with sauteed zucchini, kale, tomatoes and mushrooms

Gluten-Free Warm or Cold Pasta Salad amps up the flavor with sauteed zucchini, kale, tomatoes and mushroomsor Cold this Pasta Salad with sauteed zucchini, kale, tomatoes and mushrooms
I have to admit when I make a dish like this it's because I'm in a hurry or crazy hungry! My brain always goes to gluten free pasta when I'm hungry, but I don't indulge very often. I try to offset the carbs by not adding meat and adding tons of veggies instead. It's fast to make, satisfying and the cold leftovers are even better the next day!

Quick Garlic Chicken Pasta, with fresh tomatoes and white wine sauce

Quick Garlic Chicken Pasta, with fresh tomatoes and white wine sauce
I'm hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I've been cleaning and doing projects around the house. Worn out, I fell asleep, and woke up close to dinner time. I looked in the pantry and I had nothing to cook with!  
Grocery shopping was on my list of things to do! Thank goodness, I had some gluten free pasta, leftover roasted chicken, a few fresh tomatoes, a fairly fresh bunch of parsley and some wine! 
You could easily make this low carb with zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash, but sometimes I enjoy a small portion of gluten free pasta. This recipe will be perfect for leftover turkey too!
For such a simple quick pasta sauce, the flavor is rich and complex, not boring at all. I  think the leftover roasted garlic cloves really makes this recipe special.  xo
