A Delicious and Hearty Pasta Dinner
Chicken, mushrooms and pasta: they are a classic combination of flavors that just speak of comfort food and soothing home cooking. But often those flavors are drowned out with a heavy dose of cream or cheese to add richness, which doesn’t have to be the case. Fresh herbs and quality dried mushrooms can create a wonderful flavor that is lighter yet also completely satisfying.
Well, September is almost over and my summer garden is fading away. As such I’ve been using up and enjoying the last of my tomato harvest in as many different ways as possible. First was a nice and spicy vegetable soup from one of my favorite little cookbooks, Perfect Mexican. This was really satisfying and I made enough to enjoy for several days, almost all with local squash, potatoes and corn along with my own tomatoes.
