Since Pasta Salad was Finished, Here is an Easy to Make Dinner

Thought I would do an easy to make dinner to go with it of something that I knew would get hubby away from the computer and come into kitchen with his nose leading the way…

Smart Steamer to the Rescue

This is a great must have in any kitchen…Dr. Oz was smart to endorse this on his December segment…wish I had been in that audience cause I did not get a free one like they did…

Frozen Peas Any Brand


I do not even notice what brand as I shop for the ingredient list so that it is strictly that item in the bag due to allergies…

Sesame Oil

This is the only way that my hubby will eat peas and I make sure to place the peas above the fish so the sesame oil drips onto the fish prior to going into the water…adds a little flavor and activates the garlic and seasonal on the fish….

The water afterwards

The water is the only place that the microwave hit in this Smart Steamer the food is untouched by them.

Dinner is served

Hope you enjoy and the Smart Steamer goes right into the microwave along with the plates and forks…easy clean up…



Spinach & Basil Pasta Salad Made Easy

Of course I use the new pasta cooker from Tupperware that makes my life easier   so I do not have a ton of pots to clean up later or a colander since it is all in one so I sort of skip those two steps… This original recipe called for bow-tie macaroni which I would have loved to have made it with but was out…so I had to settle for spirals…

Pasta Salad

16 oz or two cups of pasta

6 0z of spinach leaves or 1 pkg of frozen chopped spinach thawed

2 cups of fresh basil leaves (I thought this was a little excessive so I added less)

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (or what you have) I am certain it won’t tell if it was not extra virgin

3 cloves of garlic minced or equivalent in jar

4 oz or 1/2 cup of prosciutto or bacon, diced

salt and ground black or white pepper to taste

3/4 cup (freshly) grated Parmesan cheese

(Optional) 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts…I do not add due to people having allergies…

I added a small amount of Italian Dressing as it seemed dry

Check out my video to start and stop this at your leisure so that you can dance while making  and enjoy seeing how it is made prior to making.

Bowties and Shrimp in Spinach Pesto made easy

Bowties with Shrimp in Spinach Pesto

Talk about an easy recipe.  I use the new Tupperware pasta maker since we are an authorized Tupperware Dealer and you can store the extra bowties if any in the pasta maker in your fridge.  You only need your chopper and a frying pan so it is easy clean up after too…

Again I have a video so you can start and stop at your leisure…set to music so you can dance as you prepare your food.  This is one of my favorites and we have made with other types of fish and also chicken…

See the video here…
