Mediterranean Pasta

Ingredients: 1/2 pkg spaghetti, 1 1/2 cups spinach, 1 cup of olives, freshly made tomato sauce, garlic, basil, olive oil to taste, anchovies to taste, salt, and pepper! Directions: Combine wet and dry ingredients. Let simmer for 30 minutes. Add olives and spinach last. Drain pasta and plate. Top pasta with sauce and add grated cheese to your liking.

Scallop & Kale Pho

Ingredients: Scallops, cashews, carrots, kale, broccoli, red peppers, Pho noodles, vegetable stock, olive oil, sesame oil, carrots, garlic, scallions, fish sauce, love, and homemade red pepper chili sauce. Directions: Combine scallions, cashew nuts, olive oil, sesame oil, and carrots. Cook approximately 5 – 10 minutes. A wok is recommended. I didn’t use a one. Add broccoli, kale, and fish sauce. Cook for 5 minutes. Then, add vegetable broth. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Cook Pho noodles for 6 minutes.  This depends on the directions. I don’t like over cooked vegetables, so I recommend adjusting the timing to your liking! I also season to taste, and so there can be soo many different versions. The recipe calls for a 40 minutes cook time.  Pan sear the scallops last, so they are tender and hot! Top the noodles with broth and scallops!

This dish is very filling and good for cold mornings when you just want some good old comfort food. Cheers
