Steak and Blue Cheese Bowtie Pasta

Did you know the recommended serving size for meat is only a few ounces? Think about seeing a steak that size of a few matchboxes on your plate – that’s just disappointing. I love this recipe because it supplements a smaller amount of high-quality steak with fresh baby spinach, a creamy sauce made with lots of meltingly soft onions, mustard, garlic, and blue cheese, and springy, nutty-tasting, al dente Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta. Suddenly, one good steak can satisfy three or four people. Read More »

Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken and Asparagus in Lemon-Cheese Sauce

It’s finally springtime and our faithful root vegetables have done their job and gotten us through the tough winter months. Now, bright green vegetables are popping up all over grocery store produce aisles, with fresh asparagus being one of my all-time favorites. I love to roast it, keep it raw and shave it into salads, steam it and grill it. I even grow it in my garden just to have my own supply in the early months of the season. This Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken and Asparagus in Lemon-Cheese Sauce is another way that I like to incorporate asparagus in a light, good-for-you pasta dish. Read More »


Southwestern Baked Pasta

I think casseroles were invented for busy people – and rightly so. They’re easy to put together, use a minimal number of dishes and generally make enough food for more than one meal. This Southwestern Baked Pasta fits all of those descriptors, and it certainly tastes great. The bonus item with this casserole is that it’s healthier for you than most traditional casseroles because it’s made with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Penne Pasta. If you’re like me and shy away from spicy foods, never fear; this recipe has all of the warm flavors of Southwestern food, but isn’t the least bit spicy – especially when you dollop a little sour cream on top. On the other hand, if you‘d like a little more heat, you can adjust the spiciness without any trouble. Read More »

Bow Tie Pasta with Bacon and Mushrooms

A plateful of hot pasta covered in a delicious sauce served with fresh bread and a green salad is my idea of a great dinner. People pay a lot of money at restaurants for this kind of meal when they could easily make something just as good, if not better, at home. This recipe for Bow Tie Pasta with Bacon and Mushrooms is the perfect example of this kind of meal. It begins with healthy, 100% whole grain Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Ties -not something found on most menus and so much better for you than regular white flour pasta. The bow ties get tossed together with fresh mushrooms and a creamy, bacon-flavored tomato sauce that comes together in less than 30 minutes. I warmed up a nice loaf of bread, tossed together a simple salad and dinner was served. It was easy, less expensive and better for my family than eating out. It also completely satisfied my craving for a great pasta meal and made a tasty little lunch for me as leftovers the next day. Read More »

This is the perfect dish to warm you up and chase away some of those winter blues. Just thinking of melted cheese makes me feel better already. The addition of smoked cheddar cheese gives this classic dish a more complex flavor and the buttery panko breadcrumb topping bumps up the appeal. To take this recipe up another notch, I’ve included Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Elbows. Like all Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat pastas, these elbows are made from 100% Durum whole wheat, the highest quality wheat available. And the hearty texture and great whole wheat taste truly compliments a rich dish like this. With Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat pasta, my family is eating healthier and getting more nutrition than they would if I’d have made this dish from regular white pasta. Read More »

What’s one of the best parts about Thanksgiving dinner? You got it – the leftovers. I intentionally roast a bigger turkey than we need to make sure that I’ll have plenty of leftovers for sandwiches and to use in other recipes.

Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Lasagna noodles are layered between a creamy sauce of garlic-herb cheese, leeks, mushrooms, and fresh spinach with roasted turkey, fresh mozzarella and Parmesan scattered throughout.
