Penne Salmon Pasta

Every once in a while you have a recipe that you fall back on time, and time again……..such is Penne Salmon Pasta.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had recipes that I thought I would never see again………….I cannot thank my friend and co-worker……..or should I say miracle worker, Jeanne enough. She rescued my lost recipes from their Word Perfect prison. So, Tim and I were able to enjoy this yummy pasta dish………….and now I get to share it with all of you.

This dish has so many parts that are good for you. In addition to being super easy to prepare, it is also loaded with taste.

It has an Asian flare……….garlic, ginger, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar, and a touch of Sriracha for spice. The salmon gives you all those good Omega’s. Spinach is high in fiber with tons of vitamins and antioxidants. Add in the shiitake mushrooms for more fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Toss in enriched whole grain pasta, and a touch of green onion for garnish…………’s a healthy bowl full of bliss.

Beef Bourguignon for Two

Bourguignon Plate

I LOVE BEEF…….there I said it loud and proud. Nothing tastes better that a beautiful piece of beef tenderloin, filet mignon…….I’m drooling just typing the words. Not to mention that Beef Bourguignon for Two is so French sounding. One thing you must know about me is I have a complete fascination with the Eiffel Tower. I have pictures of it, figurines of it, I even have a large tattoo of it. My dream come true would be to see the Eiffel Tower in person with my wonderful husband. So making this dish conjures up a sense of a romantic French Bistro where the view is the Eiffel Tower….candle light……wine…….if I still drank …..I am proud to say I am 4 years sober…….sounds of music in the background….sigh…………OK snap back to reality.
