Ultragrain Penne with Fresh Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Pepperoni

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 »

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 »


Gluten Free Beef, Basil & Goat Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups

When the weather is cold, baked pasta tops my list of comfort foods. Nothing warms you up on a chilly night like a big helping of piping hot pasta baked in a delicious tomato sauce and covered with melted cheese. 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 »


Baked Chicken Parmesan with Whole Wheat Shells

This quick, easy dish tastes every bit as good as traditional Chicken Parmesan, but is better for you because it contains Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Medium Shells. It’s a great way to introduce your family to whole grain pasta. Read More »


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 »


Spicy Basil Shrimp Fettuccine

In less than half an hour, you could be sitting down to late-winter comfort food at its best: warm sauce and pasta with enough spice to wake you up and make you think of the approaching spring and summer. This is the perfect dish for a weeknight meal or a Lenten Friday supper. Read More »


Gluten-Free Linguine with Artichokes, Sundried Tomatoes and Arugula

Need a go-to healthy gluten free entree that’s easy enough for a weeknight dinner, but definitely fancy enough for casual entertaining? I’ve got you covered with this Gluten-Free Linguine with Artichokes, Tomatoes and Arugula. What’s even more brilliant is that this entree comes together in about half an hour and all but one ingredient (the arugula) come in jars and boxes you can keep in a cupboard to pull out at a moment’s notice. This is definitely food love! Read More »


Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese

I’ve combined two of my favorite comfort foods – mac and cheese, and roasted butternut squash. I love how the butternut squash adds tons of Vitamin A and C, along with extra creaminess and its bright orange color, to the sauce. The delicious Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Elbow Macaroni (Or Gluten-Free Brown Rice Elbows, if you prefer) are much more robust and better for you than regular white flour pasta elbows, and they really grab onto the cheesy, creamy sauce. It’s truly a feast for all the senses. Read More »
