Spaghetti night – miss it no more. The very aptly named spaghetti squash provides a tasty, healthy substitute for regular pasta. It is actually really yummy, very interesting and may surprise you. Once ready, it can be used to prepare tasty dishes.

The coolest of all is knowing that besides you’re consuming a “vegetable noodles”, it has about 37 calories per 100 grams. A great request for those on a diet. Spaghetti squash is low in carbs and calories and is a plentiful source of beta-carotene, vitamin A, and vitamin C. It also contains omega 3 and half a dozen other healthy fatty acids, besides being a powerful antioxidant.

I like to make spaghetti squash about once a week because I can do so much with the roasted squash. One night I can make it with pesto, the next night as a slightly more elegant meal shrimp sauce, bolognese (meat) sauce, cheesy béchamel

One squash with your favourite sauce will serve up to 4 people. It’s so tasty you won’t miss the pasta!

 

This Shrimp Sauce recipe can satisfy a number of meal occasions and is sure to impress. It’s quick and easy. It’s perfect for casual entertaining as it is packed with flavor. Use jumbo shrimp if you want to make it impressive!

Use it with Spaghetti or any short pasta such as penne, or try this Fast2eat shrimp sauce with a low-carb, healthier alternative to pasta using spaghetti squash! It’s still amazingly delicious with half the calories! Spaghetti squash is a favorite ingredient for those seeking a lower-carb, paleo-friendly, clean eating, gluten-free alternative to pasta.

If you prepare the spaghetti squash in advance, it is ready in minutes.

 

Old fashioned flavor using a bread machine!

Old fashioned Oatmeal molasses bread is easy to make, a rich and tender loaf that is perfect for toast or sandwiches, and great with cream cheese.

I love molasses and this bread is full of that dark rich taste. This bread is not super sweet as it may seem. It has a nice, deep, rich flavor with just a hint of sweetness.

 

This yummy fish filet covered with white sauce is an easy and simple recipe as well as very flavourful.

The sauce is especially delicious because the juices of the fish mingles in with it. It’s like a sauce made with the best stock ever!

 

Crème caramel (French), flan, caramel pudding or Brazilian Condensed Milk Flan (Aka Pudim De Leite Condensado) is a custard dessert with a layer of soft caramel on top, as opposed to crème brûlée, which is pudding with a hard caramel top.

If you are one of those who lose an entire hour to make it in the conventional oven… This recipe is for you! Using a Pressure cooker is time saver, it’s done in just 10 minutes.

 

This brown bread recipe using bread flour, whole wheat flour, and cornmeal is simply amazing!

It’s mildly sweet, soft and delicious, with hints of molasses. Sooo yummy!

This bread gets some brown color from the molasses.

It’s similar to the wonderful dark bread served at the Outback Steakhouse Restaurant chain.

I hope you love it as much as we do.

 

Escondidinho in Brazil, cottage pie or Shepherd’s pie in North America, Pastelón in Mexico or Caribe… This pie is a casserole that combines yuca (cassava/ manioc) and a savoury filling – meat (ground beef – my family favourite), shrimp (my favourite), diced chicken, turkey, fish, dried codfish (bacalhau), pork, Sun-dried Beef/jerked beef (The famous Escondidinho de Carne Seca in Brazil) and also soy or veggies could be added or used without meat for a vegetarian version… The fillings are limited only by your imagination.

A true one casserole dish that can also be made from leftovers. You already know that I absolutely love casseroles, not only because they are delicious but also because they are easy and ideal for busy days. You can make it ahead and leave it in your fridge and bake it at the end of the day when you come home from work! It can be served by itself or accompanied by a fresh salad or steamed vegetables. It’s really up to you!

It is one of the most versatile pies that can be assembled. And if you don’t like or find the yuca (cassava/manioc) you can also make it using different types of mashed roots, like potatoes or sweet potatoes or instant mashed potatoes, as a substitute.

It’s gluten-free, the dough is perfect for the gluten intolerant. This is pure fabulousness! One of my favourites dishes.

 

Tiramisu is an easy make-ahead dessert made of luscious layers of coffee-soaked ladyfingers, a light and airy Zabaglione filling made from egg yolk, sugar, beaten egg whites, Mascarpone cheese and whipped cream.

This recipe has been adapted from the one my friend Connie Carlotti has sent to me and I am sure that it will be the best Tiramisu you will have ever made. Some Tiramisu has too much coffee flavour or too much “alcoholic” flavour, but this one has the correct amount of each ingredient. And because it uses both beaten egg whites and whipped cream, it is so rich, creamy and delicious that you won’t resist. This tiramisu is one of my son’s all-time favourite desserts.

 

Crispy fish without the grease – Haddock (or other white fish) is lightly breaded and baked. Parmesan adds a nice flavour. 

Fast and easy to prepare, and no frying needed! Oven-baked fish is a perfect alternative to the more caloric fried version.

So much flavor… so easy, healthy and tasty! Ideal for busy weeknights.

 

If you’ve ever tried potato bread, you know that the addition of mashed potatoes makes for some nice, soft bread because potatoes tend to make bread rise a little fluffier and softer.

Potato Bread made with instant potato flakes and dry milk means you don’t have to spend time peeling and cutting potatoes or wait for leftover mashed potatoes to make it.
