Fiocchetti with Pears and Parmesan Cream
If you asked me 10 years ago after feasting at a trattoria in Florence on fiocchetti alle pere con salsa di taleggio e asparagi that one day I would be able to replicate the experience, I would have laughed in your face. Back then the only thing I knew how to make was frozen pizza. But time has a way of changing us, and that trip to Florence changed me too. Here I am 10 years later, recreating that meal of a lifetime.

Creamy Crawfish Pasta
Still looking for a Mardi Gras recipe to celebrate the season? Try this creamy crawfish pasta that comes together in a breeze. I just so happened to have some crawfish squirreled away in my freezer; this was a sensational way to use it. Instead of heavy cream, I used half & half and added tomato paste and white wine to make a creamy pasta sauce. I threw an over-the-top crawfish boil for my fiance’s birthday party last year.

How To Layer and Make Lasagna
Lasagna is perhaps the quintessential feed-a-crowd casserole. There are many ways to make lasagna, but here is my own method for making it. It’s extra-deep (you will need a deep pan), as well as cheesy, meaty, and really, really chunky with beef and sausage. This is a serious lasagna.I was so intimidated by lasagna before I first tried it. It looked like a process that would eat up my whole day.
