Chicken and Zucchini Ricotta Ziti Pasta

Chicken and Zucchini Ricotta Ziti Pasta

I love pasta and I love trying out new pastas, so when I found this lentil ziti by Tolerant Foods, from Costco I had to grab it and try it! On top of that I had a Spud delivery that had three zucchinis in it, meaning I needed to incorporate zucchini in a recipe soon. Zucchini and pasta go together quite well and adding chicken, tomatoes and ricotta cheese just seemed logical!

Sangria Italian Birthday!

Sangria Italian Birthday!

Hi! I love to cook and I am so happy when I can cook and entertain my family and friends. For my birthday this year I told my husband that I wanted to go all out and make a huge dinner for everyone – and that’s what we did! Homemade Italian dinner of ravioli, salad and garlic toast, with antipasto cheese and meat board to start and homemade tiramisu to finish it all off. Great company of family and friends and…
