Zucchini Lasagna + Soup Club Cookbook Review

If you live anywhere even slightly cold, the one thing you love about winter is probably the delicious food that it brings. And when it comes to dinners, who doesn’t love hearty casseroles or steaming soups?

Last night, I treated my family to something hearty and healthy: zucchini lasagna. Many of you have probably already tried some type of zucchini-rendition of a pasta, as gluten-free meals have become increasingly more popular.

This is a filling and healthy way to sneak veggies into your meal!

Creamy Fettuccine

A while ago I posted this fettuccine alfredo recipe, but I made it again and felt that it needed something more; it just didn’t have the right texture for me. So I came up with this creamy fettuccine recipe, and I think the name pretty much speaks for itself.

This light pasta tastes great as a first course or main meal. Serve fresh with a salad on the side and a slice or two of baguette. Not only does this taste great, but it is also a super simple dish to make that only requires 7 ingredients. Yeah, just seven.
