If corned beef and cabbage isn’t your thing, this just might be!
When I think of pasta salad I think of summer. But this Italian Pasta Salad can be served all year long hot as a main dish, cold as a side dish, and packed in the lunchbox the next day for a yummy lunch your kids will love! Don’t want the pasta? Put it over Romaine lettuce instead! I love making an Italian Salad for a crowd because sometimes I don’t want to make an antipasto and a salad. So, I combine them and there you have it! Like everything else this recipe can be adjusted depending on what you have in the house.
If you ask me whose playing in the Superbowl, I promise you I will NOT know the answer. My husband says he stopped watching football once he started dating me. And that’s pretty accurate. No one in my family ever watched sports, so that is that. Lol. He can totally watch it, but my main focus will always be the food and the halftime show! But now that we have 2 boys, he has made a point to start watching it again. I’m ok with that, as long as there is some good food, not just a bowl of Doritos!
This tomato salad is one that my sister Jen makes a lot. It is refreshing, simple, healthy and delicious. It’s one of those salads that everyone eats with their fingers out of the bowl before it’s even on the table!
Broccoli Rabe is a veggie my mom frequently makes. It is packed with nutrition and is delicious! I don’t make it much because half of my family likes it and half of them don’t. But I love it when it’s made right. And my mom makes it perfect. I love it tossed with pasta, of course. But you can make it as a side dish to sausages or any meat.
This is a recipe I got from the back of a can of Bush’s Beans. I have changed it a bit over the years. It is an excellent side dish that I usually serve with white rice and store bought Rotisserie chickens for a quick, healthy dinner!
I can make these every day for a year and they still won’t be as perfect as my mom’s. Not sure what she does to them. But this is her recipe and they are amazing! Sunday dinner usually has these on the menu.
