Pasta with Sausage and Peas

It isn’t a crazy idea to put ground sausage and pasta together, but sometimes it is nice to have a bit of a recipe to follow for inspiration. You can certainly play around with this idea a bit. I liked the rosemary and tomato paired with the sausage.

Potato, Sausage, and Rosemary Mini Galettes

Here we have a recipe that is easy to customize for your audience. With one person who couldn’t do dairy, and one who was arriving home for dinner much later, I was able to bake them in batches, and also adjust the ingredients in the filling to help. If you have picky family members, you can change things for them.

Garlic-Rosemary Dutch Baby

I had saved this recipe and randomly pulled it out one weeknight to bake while I prepped the rest of dinner. It made the dinner a touch more fancy, even though it is quite simple and fast.

Tomato Sauce with Olive Oil, Chopped Vegetables, Rosemary, and Pancetta

It’s fun looking through my Marcella Hazan cookbook and finding new simple recipes to make that taste good. This one has vegetables built in, and because they are chopped rather than diced, they remain fresh tasting in the sauce. The pancetta adds a bit of flavor and meat to the dish, if you or your family members (ahem, K) require that in a meal. If not, you can make the same dish without the pancetta. This dish is also toddler-friendly with the fun pasta shapes and easy to chew vegetables.

Herb and Green Onion Bread

When I was going to make the chicken piccata I shared last week, I realized I didn’t have a starch in mind for the meal. I needed to come up with something last minute. So, I began looking through my recipes and came across an herb bread. I didn’t have fresh thyme, or buttermilk, but decided to try it anyway. It ended up working well! I froze half of the loaf for the future. The remaining half we had with dinner, then had with eggs for breakfast. It’s a very soft, crumbly bread.
