Tomato and Mascarpone Pasta

1 lb. spaghetti, cooked al dente according to package directions
1 medium onion, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 14-oz cans diced tomatoes
5 oz Mascarpone (found in the imported cheese section of the grocery store. It looks like cream cheese but that's where the similarity ends)
1 tsp Italian seasoning
salt and pepper
Freshly grated Parmesan
fresh basil

Finely dice the onion and grate the garlic. Heat some olive oil and saute the onion for about 4 minutes, until translucent. Add the garlic and give it about 30 seconds to become fragrant. Add the diced tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and Italian seasoning and let simmer for 30 minutes.

Stir in the Mascarpone into the tomato sauce and check the seasonings. Adjust if needed. Finish with lots of finely minced fresh basil.

Add to the pasta and serve, passing freshly grated Parmesan separately.

Lola This sounds yummy. After I shower I am running up to the store to get the only ingredient I need, the mascapone. Can't wait to try it.

Pasta with Asparagus, Mozzarella and Proscuitto

Ingredients
asparagus, trimmed
1lb spaghetti or penne
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut crosswise into strips (or diced)
6 ounces smoked or regular fresh mozzarella cheese, diced (about 1 cup)
6 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

Directions

Cook the asparagus in a large pot of boiling salted water until crisp tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. With a spider or slotted spoon, remove asparagus from boiling water to a bowl of ice water to cool and stop the cooking. When cool, strain, cut asparagus into 1-inch pieces, and set aside.

Return the water in the pot to a boil, adding additional water, if necessary. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, tender but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain the pasta, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.

Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 20 seconds. Add asparagus to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the pasta, and if needed, some of the reserved cooking liquid. Toss to coat. Add the prosciutto, mozzarella, and basil, and toss to combine. Turn off the heat. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve.

Maple Mustard Chicken

1 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
cup Dijon mustard
cup real maple syrup
1 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
Fresh rosemary
Preheat your oven to 450F. Mix together mustard, maple syrup and vinegar.
Put chicken thighs into a foil-lined, oven-proof baking dish. Then, salt and pepper the thighs. Pour the maple mustard mixture over them, turning the thighs in the mixture so they are fully coated.
Put the chicken thighs into the oven, and let them bake for 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165F. Baste the tops of the chicken with more sauce half way through. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Plate the chicken, making sure to spoon some extra sauce over the top. Sprinkle over some fresh rosemary to serve.

1 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
4 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup brined capers, rinsed
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
8 ounces Angel hair pasta
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Pour the lemon juice, chicken stock and capers into the warm skillet. Stir and scrape up any of the loose brown bits. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and let sauce simmer for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook angel hair pasta according to package directions. Drain water and add 2 Tablespoons butter to pasta and 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Serve chicken with sauce and pasta. Garnish with fresh parsley and more grated Parmesan cheese.

Default Baked Potato Soup

Baked Potato Soup

4-5 medium russet baking potatoes
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, divided
6 cups milk
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup finely diced green onions
1/3 cup light sour cream

Toppings:
Sour cream
Shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped green onions
Cooked, diced bacon pieces


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Pierce the potatoes all over with the tines of a fork. Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake for about an hour, until tender and baked through. Remove the potatoes from the oven and let them sit for about 20 minutes, until they are cool enough to handle (or use an oven mitt if you don't want to wait for them to cool slightly).

Cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the insides of the potatoes. Place the potato chunks in a medium bowl and mash with a fork or a potato masher until the potatoes are broken into smaller chunks.

In a large 4-quart pot, melt the butter over medium heat. When melted, add 1/4 cup of the flour and whisk to combine. Cook the mixture, whisking constantly, for 2 minutes until lightly browned. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the milk and remaining 1/4 cup flour. Gradually whisk the mixture into the pot, and cook until thick and bubbling, about 6-8 minutes. Stir in the potato chunks and salt and pepper. Whisk in the cheddar cheese until it is completely melted. Stir in the green onions and sour cream. Serve immediately with desired toppings.
