Turkey Risotto Primavera

Turkey Risotto Primavera

This was great! I did vary the recipe a little bit, using up items I already had in stock.

Also instead of straight arborio rice, I used a package of Lundberg Family Risotto I had on hand (even though the box called for 2 cups of water, I used 3 cups of turkey broth from the roasted bird - as suggested in this recipe.).

Gnocchi with Mushroom Sauce

Gnocchi with Mushroom Sauce

I made this recipe about 2 weeks ago and I'm ready to make it again! My kids loved it, even though they say they won't eat tomatoes, they said they'd eat this again! This is a great quick and easy recipe and meat, fish or meat alternative could easily be added. — susanjm 8/8/2011
Cauliflower Au Gratin

Cauliflower Au Gratin

It's a bit of a production and higher in calories than I'd like for a frequent use side dish, but it was very tasty. I was very pleased about how easy it was to make the bechamel sauce (my first attempt). Now, my quest to figure out how to make a low fat version! — sgrishka 2/20/2011
