Pumpkin Penne Pasta Recipe

As you’ve probably noticed with some of my other recent posts, I’m really enjoying recipes that contain pumpkin at the moment.  I hope you enjoy this one as much as my family did last night.

What You Will Need:

–   1 package of penne pasta (you don’t necessarily need penne specifically but it is a favourite of mine)

–   2 Tbsp of olive oil

–   2-3 cloves of grated garlic (depending on how much you like garlic)

–   1 can (roughly 1 ¾ cups) of pumpkin puree

–   ½ cup of heavy cream (if you don’t have any in the house, I have used regular milk)

–   1 tsp of salt

–   1 tsp of crushed red pepper

–   ½ tsp of pepper

–   1 ½ Tbsp of sage

–   ¼ tsp of nutmeg

–   ½ tsp of cinnamon

–   grated parmesan or mozzarella on top

 

What You Need to do:

1.   Cook the pasta as indicated on the package.

2.   In a skillet, heat the oil and cook the garlic and crushed red pepper, until the garlic has softened.

3.   Stir in the broth, salt, cream and pepper.

4.   Next at the nutmeg, sage and cinnamon.  Let the contents of the skillet simmer, until everything has thickened.  If it doesn’t seem to thicken enough, especially if you are using regular milk instead of cream, add some cheese at this point.

5.   Now all you have to do is mix the sauce with the pasta and serve.

Enjoy!

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Recipe

 

I found this delicious recipe from Philadelphia website.  I just wish I would have found this recipe at the beginning of summer.  Here is the recipe:

–   1 can (14oz) of sweetened condensed milk

–   2 tsp of lemon juice

–   1/3 cup of whipping cream

–   3 chopped up graham crackers

–   1 1/2 cups of strawberries

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.  Mix the first four ingredients in a blender.  Once completely blended, place in the freezer for about 4 hours.

2.  Blend strawberries until smooth.  Then add the cream cheese mixture and continue to blend until mixed up completely.  Freeze until firm (roughly 7 hours).

3.  Take out of the freezer for about 15 minutes before serving so it will be easy to scoop and serve.

Home Made Graham Crackers Recipe

Here’s a great treat for the young and old.  This is another good idea to do with the kids as an activity.  This recipe should make about four dozen.

 

What You Will Need:

–  3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

–  1 1/2 cups whole-wheat graham flour

–  1/4 cup sugar

–  1/4 cup brown sugar

–  1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

–  1 tsp baking powder

–  1/2 tsp baking soda

–  1/2 tsp salt

–  1 tsp vanilla extract

–  1/2 cup butter

–  4 Tbsp honey

–  1/4 cup cold water

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Preheat oven to 350°F.

2.   Mix both flours, both sugars, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon in a bowl with an electric mixer.

3.   Now add butter (it’s best to use cold butter).  Then add honey, vanilla and water.  Continue to mix until the contents of the bowel is mixed into a ball.

4.   Next, roll out dough onto waxed paper.  Leave the dough to be about 1/2 inch thick.

5.   Place dough in the refrigerator for about an hour until it is firm.

6.   Now that the dough is firm, lightly flour the dough and roll out the dough so that it is about 1/8 inch thickness.

7.   Then cut dough into roughly 2 inch squares and placed on parchment lined cookie sheets.  Poke each square a few times with a fork, like you would when baking a pie.

8.   Bake for 15 minutes or until the squares are lightly browned at the edges.
