Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
I agree with naples31402 that the garlic should be reduced by half. I'm a cheese lover so I kept the amount as is. My biggest alteration was adding a single Thai Pepper. Wow! If you like hot this will work for you. I wouldn't add more than one pepper. You can use a fresh Cayenne Pepper in place of the Thai Pepper which should be slightly less hotter. BEATLEFAN1964 has an excellent point using a few drops of fresh lemon juice to mitigate the oxidation of the fresh basil. I made fresh linguini pasta for this dish which was a great idea. Just remember to keep about 1/4 cup of the pasta water and mix that with the pesto sauce to help bind it to the pasta. Buon Appetite!

Bow-Tie Pasta With Red Pepper Sauce

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
I liked the sound of this recipe so I gave it a try with what I had at home. I wanted to make this as healthy as possible so I used whole wheat penne instead of bow tie pasta. I didn't have fresh herbs so I used dried. I think I should have used less than what the recipe calls for for the fresh herbs. The dish came out a little too spicy. Aside from that I will try some variations in the future like the other reviewers mentioned. Definitely worth trying and is easy to make if your short on time.

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
This was a big success at Thanksgiving. The only change I would make is the amount of sugar in the recipe. I think it could be reduced by 1/4 to 1/2.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Not a bad spin on a classic. A little to sweet for me. I will adjust the sugar and mustard content next time
