Reviewed squid ink tagliatelle with squid and white wine-tomato sauce

10 hours ago on

We didn't have squid ink, so we made her regular pasta, and overall, we loved this! I was pleasantly surprised by how the sauce coated the pasta and just tasted nummy.

I really liked this - and my kids did too! I made some tweaks to it, but kept the same basic recipe. Definitely worth a try.

I thought this was good, but then my husband absolutely raved about it! Pleasantly surprised! The only switch I made was instead of green onions, I sauteed some sliced onions in butter.

Loved how fast this was! My hubby doesn't care for peas, so I subbed in green beans. Plus, we are trying to eat more beans so I added great northern and some black.also added a few onions. Definitely good! Oh and I left out thyme since I used bear bacon and wanted that flavor to stand out. The thyme probably would be good!

Wowsa... love this! I added an extended brownie recipe of mine and put in a bunch of toasted coconut and heath bar crumbs (leftover from a previous dessert) and raisins. My hubby wasn't too thrilled that I added raisins, but I love the sweetness it gives when you eat one. The brownie recipe itself though seems spot on... not healthy, but perfect f"

I used this as a guideline to create an excellent dinner salad. I wasn't super picky about exact measurements. I poached chicken, roasted potatoes, fried up bacon and then some onions and green pepper in the bacon fat (I know... Healthy!)... Cut up celery and celery leaves and tossed it together with mayo and mustard. Paprika and salt and pepper t"

I wanted to use some oranges up, but I didn't want to use 2 sticks of butter. I halved the recipe and put it in a small square pan. Loved how it turned out. I didn't use extract, but just used some zest and fresh squeezed orange juice to taste. Probably turned out to be more than the recipe called for. And yes, it is more like an orange cake than "

I loooooove this recipe and make it all the time. It can be doubled pretty easily. Today I threw in some flaxseed, and they flew under the radar as a nice way to get some extra healthiness in there.

I do love throwing some apples or pears in the butter in the oven for 10-15 minutes before I put the batter on. Creates a nice fruit...

I've made this twice. My one-year-old, husband, and myself all agree that this is great. My hubsters isn't super fond of just any meatloaf; this is extra special.

Changes we made:

1. stewed tomatoes instead of diced, although the first time we did that because we didn't have diced in the house, and we roasted...
