I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Cheesy Pasta 

1 Tbsp olive oil

¼ small onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, chopped

1 (14 oz) can chicken or vegetable broth

1 c pasta (alphabet or 1½ c mini bowties)

¼ c grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 tsp salt and pepper to taste

Fresh parsley or basil, etc. (in parents’ dishes only)

Preheat 8” pot with a tight fitting lid to moderate heat. Add oil, onion and garlic and sauté for 2-3 min. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Stir in pasta and return to a boil. Cover pot and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 min, stirring occasionally, or until pasta is tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove lid and stir in cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Stir in herbs to strengthen the flavor to your liking.
