Butternut Squash Agnolotti

Okay, first, do you love every single word in the recipe name? OMG yes! Butternut is a good friend of mine and a long-time Thanksgiving meal staple growing up. If you don’t know agnolotti, it is a type of ravioli – ravioli and I also go way back thanks to Chef Boyardee and this great restaurant in Brooklyn that I believe was called Cinzino’s (or something like that…). Then add kale (yes, how cliché, an RD who loves kale, I know), and brown butter sauce – heaven!!! Yes, please, get in my belly! Um, so it is safe to say I was just a bit excited going into this recipe. 

Presto Pesto Panko Chicken

Admit it – you just said, “Presto Pesto Panko Chicken” out loud, didn’t you? No? Well, say it because it’s kind of fun to say! And it is good to eat too! That presto panko crust goes on top of pesto which goes on top of chicken – this layering results in a wonderfully moist chicken with a crispy crust!

Mangia! And mangia you will as this is one big plate of food!

For the Love of Pumpkin!

Why do we have such a fascination with pumpkin every autumn? Whatever the reason, pumpkin is a delicious and versatile addition to your meals and snacks. And I’m not just talking baked pumpkin deliciousness like pumpkin pie or pumpkin breads… I’m talking some new ways to add pumpkin to your plate with a Pumpkin Vinaigrette, a Pumpkin-Nilla Chai Smoothie, and Pumpkin Power Bites!
