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 »
