Instead, I used cream cheese as the the binder. Ultimately, the filling has a delicious creamy texture and still holds everything together. I also made the sauce, so this […]

Rigatoni Alfredo with Spinach & Bacon

You can get really creative with this recipe. The Alfredo sauce is the base, and it goes well with rigatoni, or another thick pasta. Spinach and bacon also go very well with this recipe, but you can change it up by using pancetta and peas instead, or even chicken and bell pepper. Ingredients For the […]

I especially love visiting farmers’ markets during the summer time, mostly because they are everywhere!
