Are time consuming summer activities making it hard to get a home-cooked meal on the table? No need to worry, Ultragrain Penne with Fresh Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Pepperoni can be put together in a snap, tastes delicious, and is a great way to get a serving of healthy whole grains onto your plate. My kids refer to this dish as Pizza Pasta (from all of the pizza-like ingredients) and I’m beginning to think that they’re purposely keeping us late at the pool just so we can have it for dinner again. Read More »

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 »


Gluten Free Penne with Pancetta and Asparagus in Vodka Sauce

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 »
