Spicy Parmesan Shrimp Pasta Recipe

Italian
So flavorful, so spicy and so easy to put together, perfect for those busy weeknights! I’ve been somewhat obsessed with skillet dishes. It takes minutes to put together and I get a kick out of eating it right out of the pan. Hey, I don’t even have a dining table so you could imagine us just shoving our heads together into a skillet on our coffee table. And that’s exactly what happened with this parmesan shrimp pasta recipe. This parmesan shrimp pasta recipe comes together so easily with just a handful of pantry ingredients. Just be sure to prepare yourself for a 30 minute marinade. You can even make the marinade the night before so it’s ready to use for dinnertime.

Shrimp Pasta Red Sauce With Basil and Creamy Tomato

Whenever I tell people that I’m a food blogger and cook at home for a living, inevitably there is one question that always follows: “What on earth do you do with all of that food?!?” My answer is simple: “I have neighbors!!” And not just any neighbors — I happen to think that I have the coolest neighbors in the world who absolutely love our city, love our little neighborhood, and love our #neighbornights.  They’re pretty much the best.  But notably, they also happen to have some of the best appetites of any friends I know, which works out perfectly for me. All I need to do is post on our neighborhood Facebook page that I have leftover lasagna or cookies or margaritas from a day of recipe testing, and within minutes, someone…

Italian
JUMP TO RECIPE Holy capricciosa pizza toppings!!! I’m in Rome!!! You guys! I’m so excited. I barely have words for the melange of anticipation and thrill and fear and wonder and gratitude I’ve been feeling for the past week. I haven’t been to Europe for eleven years, and now, in the sweetest stroke of mileage plus points and belated birthday gifts to myself, here I am. Rome for three nights. Positano for four nights. Vacation email responder officially on. Pre-vacation gauntlet of errands and work and general chaos narrowly maneuvered. I am so, so ready. In the spirit of keeping myself as awake and sensorially absorbent, a few promises: I promise to take one million pictures and show you only the very best ones. I promise to eat as much…

My Favorite Focaccia Bread Pizza Recipe – Check it out!

Italian
This focaccia bread pizza recipe, topped with caramelized onions and tomatoes, is inspired by a trip to Italy and a meeting with a kind-hearted Italian grandmother. I learned many years ago not to question Italian grandmothers when it comes to matters of the kitchen, particularly when these matters involve a classic focaccia bread pizza recipe and gnocchi. When I was in my early twenties, making an epic backpacking trip around Europe (well, it was epic to me anyways), my friend and I stayed at a charming pensione, named Chicco di Grano, in the heart of Tuscany. While the family-run inn was not the luxurious Italian villa that regularly stars in my daydreams, it was many steps above the bunk-sleeping, shower-sharing youth hostels of our travels to that point. Nestled at…
