Rich No-Cream Wild Mushroom Pasta Sauce
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

I got this recipe from http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/main-dish/recipe-rich-nocream-wild-mushroom-pasta-sauce-041199
This rich, creamy pasta sauce was the result of an experiment. We wanted to make a creamy, mushroom-y pasta topping with no cream. We're trying to watch our diet a little better, and while we were eating pasta there was no need to indulge in cream, right?
The creaminess and thickness in a sauce can come through many methods. One of these is cream - the common ingredient of Alfredo and other cream sauces. Some pasta toppings, like carbonara, use eggs to thicken and give richness.
One lighter option is a roux, or flour-thickened, sauce. We had seen this dismissed as too difficult. Pshaw! A roux is nothing more than a little butter and flour, cooked over low heat until the flour grains swell. Then they are whisked together with hot liquid, the grains swell to thicken the sauce and voilá! You have thick, creamy pasta sauce without too much fat.
The bulk of this sauce is white wine, broth, and mushrooms. We don't use a lot of wild mushrooms - they are expensive, and just a few will do here to give flavor.
The result? Silky, thick and creamy pasta sauce - full of toothsome mushrooms and a little green parsley. The flavor of wine, wild mushrooms, and black pepper predominate - and it's not too fattening! Leaves you an excuse for plenty of cheese...

Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche
Very Good 4.5/5
(1010 ratings)

Technically this is a crustless quiche, but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides.

Herbed Bulgur and Lentil Salad

This recipe is part of "The SparkPeople Cookbook." Order your copy today! This salad is even better the longer it sits in the fridge, so we love to make a big batch of it and eat it throughout the week.

Vegetarian Vindaloo
Very Good 4.2/5

Vindaloo is one of my favorite dishes in the world! This spicy Indian curry can be made vegetarian or with meat and is packed with spices. For those new to Indian cooking, I simplified the spice list, choosing five you might already have on hand.
