Ultragrain® Penne with Fresh Corn, Zucchini and Herbs

As August comes to a close, I find myself wanting to cook with as many fresh summer ingredients as possible; knowing all too well that they’ll be gone soon. There’s a part of me that can’t wait for cooler weather to arrive, making way for bubbly baked casseroles, steaming bowls of soup and slow-cooked meals – but not yet. Right now, I still want to revel in summer’s bounty of homegrown produce and enjoy delicious dishes like Ultragrain® Penne with Fresh Corn, Zucchini and Herbs.  Read More »

Are time consuming summer activities making it hard to get a home-cooked meal on the table?

Spring Woods Pasta

I was inspired to make this dish when I was walking through woods a few weeks ago, in early spring. When I got back to my kitchen, first I took off my muddy shoes, and then I got to work figuring out how to capture the smell of things growing, or getting ready to-- that amazing combo of earthy and fresh, like a garden that’s just been planted. Earthy flavors like sausage, mushrooms, and garlic balance with bright new spring tastes like asparagus, peas, fresh herbs and lemon zest.  Read More »


Ultragrain® Chicken Carbonara - #Giveaway

Including whole grains in our meals is important to me; the health benefits, like lowering the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes, make it worth the effort. That being said, sometimes whole wheat pasta is a hard sell in my house. We have plenty of whole wheat pasta favorites (you can find them on our blog), but trying to compete with traditional white flour pasta can be challenging – until now. Hodgson Mill has developed a new line of pasta that’s made with Ultragrain®, a 100% whole wheat flour that offers whole grain nutrition with the taste, texture, and appearance of traditional white flour.  Read More »

You can tell spring is on the way when bright green asparagus starts appearing in the produce section of the grocery store.

Some of my favorite spring pasta dishes use asparagus . . .  Read More »

When the weather is cold, baked pasta tops my list of comfort foods.

With that in mind (and below freezing temperatures), I decided to fix Gluten Free Beef, Basil & Goat Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups for dinner. This dish has everything I was looking for; noodles wrapped in a savory beef, basil and goat cheese filling that are topped with a flavorful tomato sauce and covered in gooey mozzarella cheese.  Read More »
