Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

I created this recipe to use up leftover grilled burgers my husband had made.  The smoked paprika gives it a great barbecue flavor. I can’t wait to make it again!

Zucchini Latkes

After a friend of mine online posted pictures of her zucchini pasta, I had a craving for fried zucchini.  Instead of starting up my deep fryer, I opted to adapt my latke recipe to make these delicious zucchini pancakes.  The result is a crispy creamy pancake that will have people requesting this recipe often.

Remember to peel the zucchini to get rid of the yeast!

Quick Sausage Ragu

This is not a true Italian ragu, but a quick version with a cream base.  This can be cooked up in about 20 minutes total and makes a hearty meal in a flash. Here it is served over paperadelli pasta.  Notice that the recipe calls for pasta water.  After your pasta has cooked for a while, ladle out about a half a cup to reserve.
This allows you to control the consistency, for those who prefer a thinner sauce on their pasta.
