Tortellini Pesto Salad
This was a huge hit at a family gathering. I used tri-colored spirals instead of tortellini, jarred red bell pepper instead of fresh, and omitted the carrots and spinach. I also chopped the green olives so they were spread around nicely in the pasta and not overpowering. I omitted all the dairy except for what was in the pesto, and used balsamic vinegar instead of white so it wasn't too tart. This version wasn't too heavy but still had a unique flavor that had everyone asking for the recipe.

I tried the vegan version of this recipe, and it turned out perfectly, especially the syrup. I used 8 oz of walnuts and 4 oz of almonds and substituted Smart Balance for butter and agave syrup for honey. I only used 1/2 cup water to 1 cup agave (it might have been too much agave, since it's sweeter than honey). I also added a dash of nutmeg and clove, and 2 tsp of vanilla rather than 1. It was a huge hit at a family get-together and now they are requesting it for Christmas!

Ginny's Cheezy Macaroni
Wow, this started as a "what's in the cupboard" meal, and I'm already planning which parties I'll be making this for. I used butter instead of margarine and about 6-7- oz of Cheddar. I covered it with foil for 30 minutes, then removed the foil, sprinkled breadcrumbs on top, then baked it uncovered for another 30. It turned out nice and browned with a great crispy top. It wasn't super greasy like some other mac 'n' cheese recipes I've tried. Also added a couple dashes of nutmeg and garlic powder. Paired with a chianti and green beans, it made a great meal with lots of leftovers.
