I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Spinach and Ricotta Fusilli

Love this pasta dish!

6 cups chopped spinach/arugula mix
1 lb fusilli
2 tbsps olive oil
4 green onions, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper
1/4 cup ricotta
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup 10% table cream
Pinch nutmeg
1 tbsp butter

Cook the fusilli and drain reserving 1/2 cup pasta water. Toss with a little olive oil and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet and add green onions. Cook until tender crisp then add the spinach/arugula and garlic. Cook 3-4 minutes and add salt and pepper to taste. 

In a small bowl mix ricotta, yogurt, cream and nutmeg together.

Stir the ricotta mix into the greens and add butter.
Simmer 5 minutes adding enough reserved pasta water for the consistency you like.

Serve with lots of parmesan cheese.
