I’m Spicing Things Up: Pizza & Pasta

I haven’t posted about my cooking experiments in a while but I have been trying some new stuff out, and it’s been good.

I was at the store the other day and I was going to buy a ready-made pizza crust for a little over $4. I was disgusted. I thought to myself, I can make pizza dough for a heck of a lot less than this. So I went searching through my cookbooks for a dough recipe and lo and behold, the pioneer woman had a simple recipe, of course. And it’s delicious!

The first pizza I made was with pesto sauce, Roma tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Oh so yummy!

I don’t have a picture of the second pizza I made but it was an oh so good BBQ chicken pizza with red onions, mozzarella cheese and cilantro.

My next adventure in cooking was a penne pasta with shrimp in a creamy tomato sauce.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love the smell of onion and garlic together cooking in butter. Yum!

The finished product.

It was so good, but a little too rich and creamy for me. Some days I can handle all the dairy and other days I can’t, but I really don’t care. I think I’ll be making it again.
