Fire-Roasted Tomato and Spinach Pasta
What a great pantry meal! I was in a rush to get dinner on the table and had no time to get groceries. I sautéed an onion with some frozen garlic, added the fire roasted tomatoes and simmered. I added some capers for some bite. I ad no creamed spinach on hand, so I just chopped what greens I had left in the fridge and threw in some spreadable cream cheese instead. I added a can of tuna for protein, and served it with spaghetti noodles and grated Parmesan. Delish! Definitely going into the busy weeknight rotation.

Pumpkin Butter
Really easy, very tasty. I tripled the recipe since I had a number of pie pumpkins to use. I roasted them till the flesh was soft, them puréed the roasted flesh. I measured it and had about 5.5 lbs of purée. I used apple cider instead of juice since that was what I had on hand. I did cut back a bit on the ginger since my kids are not big fans. This is a really forgiving recipe, adjust spices to your taste. Absolutely lovely.

Traditional Osso Buco
Mmmmm.....good! I added a bit of dried oregano and basil to the vegetables as they cooked. I also drained the tomoatoes, so the gravy wouldn't be too dilute. I served over mashed potatoes, and it was soooooo good. Definitely a keeper.
