This soup was actually something I whipped up when I was under the impression I had "nothing to eat". It was so flavourful! I felt the heat from the red pepper flakes and the thyme really stood out as well, it was just delicious especially on a cold night. So delicious, I ate all 3 - 4 servings at one time :P
A baked potato is actually a very healthy dish, low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium while providing healthy doses of Vitamin C and Potassium.
"Loading" a potato can lead to a variety of delicious pairings when it comes to potatoes because they pair so well with everything. This version is kind of the traditional "loaded". Think Loaded Nachos; Cheese, Tomatoes, Onions, Sour Cream, Scallions..In other words, delicious on top of delicious!
Remember: Topping a potato isn't about burying it in sour cream, butter, and cheese and sprinkling veggies on top. To keep the potato on the healthy side, limit the fatty toppings and up the veg :)
Gemelli are one of my favourite pastas to work with. They are so dense and texturally pleasing, even if you should overcook them a tad they keep a good chew.
Pasta Bakes are one of my favourite dishes to prepare. They're easy to whip up, easy to clean up, and to make delicious! You can really combine anything with pasta and melt some beautiful cheese on it and it's safe to say it will be delicious. This bake incorporates some delicious Vegetarian meatballs that add both texture and flavour and really help make this dish delish!
It's filling and satisfying, flavourful, and something everyone will love!
When I had originally intended to make this dish, I found it a tad overwhelming and decided against it. Turns out, this dish is not only fairly easy to prepare but it was is SO DELICIOUS!
Layers of roasted eggplant and potatoes nestled between layers of a meatless meat sauce and topped with a creamy, white sauce (Bechamel).
I decided right off the bat I didn't want as thick a layer of Bechamel as traditionally sits upon the dish because I wanted to reduce the fat / calories of the overall dish. My version has just the right amount of creamy topping that bakes up just beautifully.
