Asparagus Frittata

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound asparagus, tough ends snapped off, spears cut diagonally into 1-inch lengths
  • 12 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese

Heat olive oil into a 10-inch oven-proof frying pan over medium high heat.
Add onions and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 3 minutes. Add asparagus, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, covered, until the asparagus are barely tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Pour in eggs and cook until almost set, but still runny on top, about 2 minutes. While cooking, pre-heat oven broiler.

Sprinkle cheese over eggs and put in oven to broil until cheese is melted and browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from oven with oven and slide frittata onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges.

Dinner and a Movie Night

Tonight after the girls came home from their first day of school and asked “Hey Mom, what’s for dinner?” I said, “It’s your favorite stuffed shells recipe. The girls responded, “Lets have a dinner and a movie night tonight.” SO.. we are!

We have not blogged an official dinner and a movie night in a long time. This will be an interesting one!

Enjoy!

August 29th, 2011 Dinner and a Movie Night

Movie:

Letters to Juliet  

Dinner:

Spinach Stuffed Jumbo Shells & Fruit Kabob Salad

*What Is Dinner and a Movie Night, you ask? Well, just like the old T.V. show with the same name (that TBS brought back after a long hiatus); we cook and eat a meal together while watching a movie that corresponds to the meal some how. Much bonding time and many laughs are had during this event! It is so fun that no one ever remembers to snap photographs!

Try this one night a month with your own family/friends! Feel free to post a link to any photo’s you take of your own event (If you remember to take pic’s)

Fettuccine Alfredo

  • 1/2 cup real butter
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan/Romano cheese, freshly grated
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic)
  • salt (to taste)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb. fettuccine
  • fresh parsley, chopped

Prepare fettucine pasta as directed on box. Drain; melt a pat of butter on still-hot pasta or stir in several drops of olive oil to keep pasta from sticking. Stir to coat evenly.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan over low to medium heat, melt the butter. Add cream, garlic (or garlic powder), and cayenne.

Simmer 20-30 minutes over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens.

Season with salt to taste.

Remove saucepan from stove and stir in cheese.

Serve over hot pasta. Sprinkle on freshly ground black pepper. (Ground Peppercorn Medley – red, green and white adds a splash of color and flavor). Garnish with parsley.
