Angel Hair Pasta in Roasted Tomato Pink Sauce Recipe

Angel hair pasta is a round-rod pasta and is the thinnest vermicelli noodles. I like to simply sauté it in butter and pair it with roasted tomatoes. I add grilled eggplant to give a meaty texture to the tomato sauce and also add a "hint" of cream to make the dish richer. If I haven't said it enough times, that's why they invented treadmills.

I made this today because my uncle came over for dinner. He became a vegetarian more than 10 years ago, even though he was an avid carnivore before. He eats tofu every day and always tells me how much he craves pasta (his wife cooks Vietnamese food exclusively). So I made his favorite dish accompanied by a pink tomato sauce. For dessert, I made another favorite of his as well: chocolate lava cake. I think he enjoyed the meal but by the end he was complaining: "Jackie, my cholesterol, my cholesterol". Ehh, he ate it all...

Goat Ricotta Cheese and Pine Nut Stuffed Baby Zucchini Recipe

I typically serve stuffed zucchini as a side dish. It is very similar to my eggplant rollup recipe. It's very creamy and hearty and is a great accompaniment to red meat, such as a steak or some lamb chops.

What I love most about this dish is that it looks very healthy. But appearances can be deceiving. The green zucchini is the perfect cover for all the cheese and pine nuts that are stuffed inside. It may not be that good for you, but it surely is good. If you still feel guilty after eating this or any other of my recipes, do what the French do: chase after a bus, a train or a metro. I did this for the first 24 years of my life. If that's not possible, you can always go for a walk.

Veggie 'Meat' Balls with Spaghetti Recipe

I'm always faced with the same dilemma when it comes to making dinner for Lulu. I try to make a meat-less equivalent for the vegetarians in the house. Today I cooked meatballs for dinner, which Lulu and his sisters obviously don't eat. I decided to try my hand at making veggie meatballs. The veggie balls are nut-free and egg-free, which is perfect for my 9-year-old-sister-in-law who has all those allergies. I didn't know what to expect, but the result was surprisingly pleasant.

You can serve the veggie balls as appetizers as well, falafel-style or in a sandwich à la Saad's. I serve them in a simple tomato sauce with wheat spaghetti.

Soy Bacon Parmesan Puff Pastry Knots Recipe

Puff pastry knots is the easiest and fastest way to get some appetizers ready right before dinner. I usually make these appetizers whenever I have leftover puff pastry dough. Nothing goes to waste!

I made cheese twists a few months ago and wanted to try out some new flavors. Half of the crowd at my home is vegetarian so I gathered some of my meatless pantry staples like soy bacon bits and horseradish mustard to please everyone.
