Now, bright green vegetables are popping up all over grocery store produce aisles, with fresh asparagus being one of my all-time favorites.

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

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.
