new recipe: Curtis Stone’s spaghetti with kale

Being sick at home is not fun.. but a girl still has to eat right? I was browsing through Instagram and saw Curtis Stone’s recipe (from his new cookbook “What’s For Dinner?

easy holiday potluck dishes: spaghetti with creamy butternut leek parmesan sauce

I wasn’t sure about this dish at first since I never had butternut with pasta but it turned out pretty good and it’s easy to make. boil water in 2 pots– one for the butternut squash & one for the pasta. once the butternut is soft, blend it until it is smooth. meanwhile, sautee chopped leeks & minced garlic in butter, add the creamy butternut, sliced sage leaves & parmesan cheese. mix in the pasta and sprinkle extra cheese on top if desired. a hearty, creamy dish! recipe courtesy of: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2012/10/spaghetti-with-creamy-butternut-leek.html
