Gemelli With Sausage, Swiss Chard, and Pine Nuts, Recipe review

image

Tried this recipe for dinner tonight, with some tasty local red swiss chard. Omitted the pine nuts. It was delicious, and the red chard made it quite colorful as well! I’ll definitely make it again, although the kids weren’t fans of the chard and picked it all out.

Tonight’s noms: Italian tilapia

image

Italian tilapia, slightly modified from Wegman’s tilapia al forno recipe, over pasta, spinach and tomato sauce. This is a popular dish in our house all around, and it’s fast and easy!

We tweaked the recipe by cutting down on the oil, just using enough to barely dampen the breadcrumbs, adding basil and oregano to the breadcrumbs, and using jarred pasta sauce.

Tonight I also tried Barilla’s veggie rotini, which was devoured. Woot!
