Sun dried tomato pasta with shrimp, capers, basil, and toasted pine nuts

Sun dried tomato pasta with shrimp, capers, basil, and toasted pine nuts

This sundried tomato pasta recipe has a very light sauce made of olive oil and white wine but is packed with flavors. The combination of the sun dried tomatoes, capers, shallots, garlic, fresh basil and pine nuts add a TON of textures and flavors to the pasta dish so that you don’t need to load it up with a heavy sauce. We added shrimp to this recipe but we’re sure it would be tasty with chicken or as a vegetable pasta recipe too.

You can never go wrong with a touch of bacon in ANY recipe, right?!?

Easy Greek Pasta Salad with Homemade Greek Dressing

We have officially moved into our new home! One of the things we need to get used to (among other things) is packing our lunches. Our old apartment was across the street from both of our offices, which made it so easy to swing home for lunch! For our first week in our new home, we opted to make a pasta salad, the easiest lunch to grab once it is prepped.  Additionally, if you’ve ever made homemade pasta salad you’d know that it’s way better 2-3 days later. This recipe uses kalamata olive flavored pasta for an even bigger flavor kick!
