Farfalle with Sun-Dried Tomato and Scallion Cream

Almost every Sunday night, my boyfriend and I have pasta for dinner. We typically just have spaghetti or rigatoni with meat sauce. I make the sauce in huge batches and freeze it for later use. Last weekend, I didn’t realize we had used up the last of our sauce until Sunday afternoon! So we needed a quick pasta recipe that we could use instead. (Don’t worry, I made more sauce this weekend so we are safe for the next few weeks!) This recipe from Food and Wine uses sun-dried tomatoes to make a quick and simple no-cook sauce. The meal was done in under 30 minutes!   Ingredients: 5 scallions, white and light-green parts only 12 sun-dried tomato halves 1 cup half-and-half 1  box (1 pound) bow tie/farfalle pasta 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon fresh oregano

But Formaggio’s smoked mozzarella was a pleasant surprise! The smoky flavor is present without being overpowering and works to enhance other flavors instead of covering them up. I found this recipe for Pasta Rustica with Smoked Mozzarella on Bon Appetit and altered the amounts of the ingredients to fit my taste.   Ingredients: 16 oz package frozen cheese tortellini 4 tablespoons olive oil 1 medium onion, sliced 12 … Continue reading
