You can serve this Roasted Tomato and Eggplant Pasta Salad as a side dish with some grilled meat on the side or garlic bread. I enjoyed it just as is with extra Parmesan cheese on top.

Mini Rotelle Pasta Muffins

Did you guys read my story about Pasta? Since that day, I just haven't been able to stop eating Pasta. I have tried it already in Soup, Sandwich and now in Pasta Muffins! What can I say!! I am an Indian who is madly in love with Italian food and sometimes, I secretly wish that I was an Italian ... hush hush!!! The Italian language is super sexy and the way they move their hands when they talk. I especially love the fact that cheese and wine are the major part of their every day meal. Well, it's not like…

Penne Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes

I clearly remember when I started eating Pasta, it was not that long ago, I guess 4 years !! So, it was one such evening  when I had called Arvind for dinner; he was my BF then,  and wanted to make something special and different ( you know the common saying ' the way to Man's heart is through his stomach' ) I think I wanted to implement that ;) That's when I had made my first Pasta attempt , searched all over the net for something that looked simple and easy. If you know me, you will also know…

Green Summer Pasta

This time of the year is meant for vibrant seasonal produces being tossed and tumbled in a plate. It’s always appealing! Broccoli, peas, pasta chucked together in a luscious garlic caper sauce. And some juicy cherry tomatoes for that extra pop of color plus a hint of sweetness. I like to call it Green Summer Pasta!

In India, I was staying in Bangalore, where the weather is pretty much steady through…

We all hate Monday mornings.. right? It's the day after Sunday, back to normal schedule, wake up early, meetings at work, deadlines to meet.. huh! i am not on that road anymore, but I remember how I used to bang my head in the pillow to wake up every Monday morning. Back in Bangalore, one of my best friend from work was my neighbor and we used to travel to work together, gossiping all the way... it was a fun but most Monday mornings, we had to motivate each other a lot :D This Monday morning was fun for me…

Pasta with Shaved Carrots and Carrot Green Sauce

A visit to the farmer’s market is inspiring, uplifting and one of the finest ways to start a morning. There is a local one, not too far from our home, that brings lovely spread of seasonal produce every week. On certain Fridays, I worry less about morning cleaning or prepping lunch and instead, I make a trip to the market. I walk pass the stalls at a slow pace, taking time to explore. There are huge bunches of vibrant greens, purple cauliflowers, baby artichokes and tender asparagus all screaming spring. And there in the corner, I see colorful spring carrots…

Baked Ziti with Chicken Bolognese

Chicken Bolognese Baked Ziti is crowd pleaser, both with kids and adults. Because it is so easy to freeze and bake in bulk, it is perfect for big parties too. You can make the dish vegetarian by adding finely chopped mushroom or tofu instead of chicken. You could also add bite size cauliflower or broccoli and make it vegetable loaded. This Baked Pasta with Chicken Bolognese is a favorite in my home and probably the only pasta dish I like that is covered in tomato sauce.
