20 Minute Date Night Tagliatelle and Pan-Fried Salmon

There is nothing sexier than a salmon steak sitting on a bed of pasta and that is that. Throw in a glass of Pinot Grigio and I am all yours honey. We could do without the family members crowding up my ~creative working space~ which also functions as a kitchen and living room area but…

Gruyère Spinach Tortellini Bake

One Pot Browned Butter Short Rib Ragu

#hastalapasta I’m going through something that can only be described as a “Pasta Renaissance”. Or a Pastaissance if you please.
