It got down into the 40’s here last weekend. THE 40’s! In NOVEMBER! In FLORIDA! That almost never happens. Don’t tell anyone, but I might have even turned the heat on in the house for a second or two. Apparently, I’m turning into a weather wimp. With each passing year my bones seem to chill a bit quicker as I get more sensitive to the cold. Don’t judge me. This will someday happen to most of you too.
Before the temperature crept back up into the 70’s, I took advantage of the situation and also did some cool weather cooking. Being Thanksgiving weekend, I made the requisite turkey barley soup. I baked a few things too. And, I made Sausage and Cheese Stuffed Shells, because nothing says warm and cozy more than meaty and cheesy baked pasta.
Remember that recipe for homemade Ricotta I told you about a few months back? Pretty amazing stuff, huh? And, you can use it in so many different dishes too! I know that I already gave you some suggestions in my original post, but I want to share one more ricotta recipe with you, because a) It’s awesome; b) It’s one of my family’s favorites; and c) It’s awesome. Did I say awesome twice? Well, I meant it. These stuffed shells really are…well…awesome. read more >>
