Artichoke Spinach Baguette.


Hello everybody.

Since yesterday’s lunch was so old fashioned today’s choice is extra Italian!
Fettuccine Alfredo with mushrooms and chicken was the main dish, on the side I made this yummy sort of garlic bread but with rich stuffing.
Saw this recipe on Facebook yesterday,you mix some chopped artichokes, spinach, cream cheese, mozzarella or kashkaval or cheddar as you like, season with garlic powder  salt and pepper and any other herbs like basil or oregano.

Cut the baguette to three pieces, remove the inside and  stuff it with the mixture . Cut to small slices  then brush all with butter, garlic powder and parsley ( I used thyme instead).

Wrap the loaf with foil paper, bake for 20 minutes then uncover and bake for another 10 minutes.

Serve hot with any pasta or pizza, so easy and delicious.

Fettuccine in Rosa Sauce.

wpid-wp-1441895219559.jpg    Hello again.

You may wandered what did I do with all these cherry tomatoes in the oven, well they were very ripe and tender so this what you do…

I baked the whole tomatoes with one chili pepper, sweet yellow pepper, garlic,rosemary, oregano,salt and olive oil alongside the cake till all tender and a thick sauce is out. I then mixed all together in the blender.

Used this sauce with some fresh mushrooms,pesto and fresh cooking cream as sauce for fettuccine.
Sprinkle with Parmesan and oregano when served.

Easy simple end of the week lunch.

Fettuccine with Shrimps.

Hello everybody.
A quick advice, don’t go to the mall these days! Had to go grab something only found in the mall, too crowded, no parkings and streets are crazy, why do people leave shopping for Eid till last days ?
Anyway though I arrived home a bit late I still had time to cook ,so rapidly I made chicken Ceazer salad and fettuccine with shrimps, dried tomatoes and pesto sauce, quick easy light dinner, 4 or 5 more days to go.
May God accept :)
