Vegetable Pizza I
This is a FABULOSU recipe!! I make this for every get-together, and it disappears instantly. A few minor changes that I make: I only use one brick of cream cheese instead of two. As for the ranch dressing mix, I find that Hidden Valley Ranch is the best. I omit the cauliflower and tomatoes (personal preference) and add minced green onion. I don't know if the pan used makes a difference, but I always bake the crust on a cookie sheet. This is a refreshing appetizer- thanks for sharing it, Jan!

Creamy Spinach Tortellini
This recipe was a hit for my entire family, inlcuding 3 kids under four! A great way to sneak spinach in without that "spinachy" taste. When I sauteed the onion, I used 1T butter with 1T olive oil. I also added 1 clove of garlic (minced) to the onions as they cooked for extra flavor. I did find that I needed to add considerably more than 1/2c. of milk to the sauce- more like almost 3/4 c. to keep the sauce from becoming too "pasty". Would definitely make again though!!

Penne with Garlicky Broccolini
This recipe is amazing! I susbstituted turkey bacon for the regular to decrease the fat, and I prefer the bacon crispier. I added 1T. of extra virgin olive oit to the skillet once the pasta was tossed. I didn't have broccolini, but using broccoli florets was just fine. I think fresh garlic is the taste key here- although jarred is more convenient, the fresh gives the dish the needed zing. I make this weekly now- wonderful!
