Pasta with Asparagus.

Being Italian, I have a serious love for pasta. I mean what is not to love? It cooks quickly, the variety is endless & it tastes delicious. Today I came across a couple different blogs & I found a recipe that I wanted to try; Pasta & Asparagus with a oil, garlic & cheese sauce. And for those of you who do the weight watcher diet this is only 4 points! Simply delicious.

Serves: 4

Calories: 227.6

What you will need:

  • 1 lb of asparagus
  • 1 pd. wheat spaghetti
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 7 garlic cloves, crushed
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup of freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

In a large pot boil 4 cups water with salt. When boiling, add asparagus & cook 3-5 minutes, until tender crisp. Drain asparagus & reserve 1 cup of liquid before draining. Fill pot with salted water, cover and boil for pasta. Cook pasta according to package direction when water boils.

In a saute pan heat olive oil. Add garlic and cook until golden, add asparagus, salt & pepper and saute for about 2 minutes, tossing with oil and garlic.

In a small bowl combine egg yolks, cheese, 1/2 cup of reserved water, salt & pepper. Mix well. After pasta is drained return to pot and mix with egg mixture. Cook on medium-low about 2 minutes, until sauce thickens and sticks to pasta. Toss in asparagus and mix well. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with additional grated cheese.

Dinner Tonight: Turkey Tips

I have never heard of nor made turkey tips before, but my sister Maddie has been craving them. She rants & raves that they are so good, so I figured I’d give it a shot. My sisters were at the grocery store & bought two packs of bbq marinated turkey tips. I told them to get whatever vegetable they wanted for a side, so they said they would get sweet potatoes. Long story short, they came home with three huge yams (some things never change) 😉

What you will need:

  1. 2 packs of marinated turkey tips
  2. 3 large yams
  3. 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  4. butter

Super easy! Super fast!

Serves:4

(I have no idea why my pictures are so small, they are from my phone since my camera is acting up 😦 )

In a medium skillet on medium cook turkey tips for 10-13 minutes.
While the turkey tips are cooking, peel and cut yams. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray, then add yams, 1/2 cup brown sugar & dot with butter. Set oven on 375 degrees

Bake on 375 degrees for 45 minutes.When tips are done, I broiled them for a couple more minutes because I like food crispy.

Dinner is ready!

I MUST AGREE with Maddie, turkey tips are definitely worth making! 🙂 If my grill wasn’t out of propane I would have grilled this meal!
