Pork Ragu

John and I wanted the pork for this to shred a bit more. Maybe we should have cooked it longer? Not a bad recipe, though. We served over pappardelle. The fennel is a nice touch. I don’t actually remember if I did this in the slow cooker or the Dutch oven but I think the former.

Chicken Pesto Cauilflower Gnocchi

Like half of the internet, I succumbed to the Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi craze. I really do enjoy it (it may help that I’m not one to make traditional gnocchi at home, so it tastes more like a treat).

Fettucine Alfredo

This was one of my sister’s favorites growing up, though I didn’t care for it much. My parents didn’t remember what brand they used for jarred sauce, so I just picked up one from Wegmans.

Cauliflower Gnocchi with Pesto and Chicken

Also not really a recipe. But I bought some of Trader Joe’s gnocchi. I made it according to package directions, and then tossed it with some pesto and cooked chicken. Really good easy meal.

Carrot Orichette

My sister had been talking up this recipe. I’m not super into cooked carrots so I was a little skeptical, but we thought it was a great blend of flavors.

Spaghetti and Meatballs, Frederick Version

There’s no real recipe here, but I need to log this meal for the challenge. Spaghetti and meatballs was another family dinner, using frozen meatballs and Ragu sauce. We often served this with garlic toast made on Italian bread.
