1. Hey Lola, me too!

Yesterday I got a comment on my blog post titled, Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup with Tortellini from a gal named Lola who was going to make this recipe "tomorrow night". When it came time to make dinner tonight I didn't have much time and had to make something quick. This meal immediately came to mind since I always keep tortellini in the fridge for a quick fix dinner.

2. Soleil - The Best Turtle Cheesecake of My Life!

For dessert we split the Turtle Cheesecake. This was the absolutely best Turtle Cheesecake I have had in my life (and I've had quite a few). There's a layer of fudginess at the bottom and the caramel on top was fabulous. Every time I visit, I'm saving room for some or I'm taking a slice home!

3. Texican Mac-N-Cheese

I asked my son what he wanted for dinner tonight because I just couldn't decide myself. He asked, "Do we have any macaroni and cheese?" Unfortunately we did not, but I knew I had all the ingredients to whip up my own. I wasn't in the mood for anything average, so I decided to spice things up a bit.

4. Fusilli Col Bucco!

The corkscrew shape of the pasta caught my eye. It reminded me of my curly hair and I thought it looked like a fun noodle to try... and it was!

The noodle is almost solid; it has a tiny little hole through it. In fact, I didn't realize that it wasn't solid until I happened to suck some air through a small piece that tried to escape my mouth. Fusilli Col Bucco is thick, thicker than spaghetti. Cooked, I'd say it's about 3 or 4 uncooked spaghetti noodles in thickness. The density of the pasta means you can go with a smaller pile on your plate and still be fully satisfied.

5. Gnocchi with Parmesan Cheese Sauce

I wasn't planning to share tonight's dinner at all because I didn't think it was going to be anything all that special. Oh... my... goodness.... YUM!!!

We had 32 pieces of leftover gnocchi from last night. I was concerned because the uncooked gnocchi got a bit darker in color. I then looked at the packaged whole wheat gnocchi in my pantry and decided they looked so similar it was probably fine to go ahead and cook them. After all, the recipe said I could refrigerate them for a couple days.

6. Homemade Whole Wheat Gnocchi

I've finally done it! For years I've wanted to learn how to make gnocchi and have put off trying to make it without being taught by someone who really knows how. I kept reading you need a gentle hand and I was nervous that I'd really mess it up. I used EatingWell's recipe for Homemade Potato Gnocchi, but chose to use Whole Wheat flour instead of all purpose flour.

7. Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup with Tortellini

Unfortunately we can't dine at a five star restaurant every night. Sometimes, I don't have time or the energy to put together a fancy meal. Tonight was one of those kind of nights where I had to cook something up quick.

8. Chicken & Four Cheese Ravioli with Asparagus Red Sauce

Instead of my usual simple red sauce, I changed it up a bit with some lemon olive oil and asparagus. The result is a dish I'm calling, Chicken & Four Cheese Ravioli with Asparagus Red Sauce.

9. Garlic-Fried Ravioli and Tomato

If you're thinking, "How can fried be healthy?" I can answer that. There's hardly any oil involved and it's olive oil so it's generally healthy. You have to remember that it's okay to have some oil.

10. Tortellini with Simple Red Sauce

Tonight I made Tortellini with Simple Red Sauce. In the few minutes it took to make the pasta, I prepared the sauce. This is one of those in-a-hurry dinners that I can count on to be ready fast and without any fuss.
