Pancetta and Summer Squash Risotto

This past week, we’ve been doing some upkeep to the house on the outside in preparation for the rainy season.  We got our house (shingles) stained, painted, gutters patched and cleaned.  The work is almost done and it looks beautiful! Antonio, our contractor, did a great job! I can’t wait to see when it’s completely finished.

Chris left for Michigan yesterday to visit his family.  The night before he left, I wanted to make him something delicious but quick for dinner.  This pasta hit all the right spot.  It’s tasty, pretty and filling! We paired this pasta dish with a glass of Chardonnay.  It was the perfect meal together.  Love you honey! Will have another yummy meal for you when you come home. xoxo!

Pancetta Pepper and Capellini Frittata

Pancetta Pepper and Capellini Frittata

It was a lazy Sunday yesterday.  Didn’t do much but cooking and chores, which included ransacking my fridge and tossing anything past its prime and unpleasant.  I was going through the fridge and saw some leftover fresh capellini pasta and bell pepper I wanted to use up, and this dish was the perfect place to use them in.  The frittata was very filling.  The pasta really made it more substantial than your average frittata and it gave it texture! Enjoy this on any lazy day off.  Until next time…
