For a quick and easy weeknight stir-fry, you will love this Asian honey garlic shrimp recipe! It's sweet, spicy, savory, and so good!!

I love a good stir fry, and trying new ways to make Chinese restaurant–worthy meals in my own kitchen. A few favorites are lightened up General Tso Chicken, and Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry. This shrimp dish, made with orange juice and orange zest, scallions and red pepper flakes for some kick is a new favorite!

Amazing post very informative

These easy (and delicious!) shrimp tacos feature pan-seared shrimp tossed with lots of chili, cumin, and garlic powder, a simple winter slaw made with watermelon radishes and jicama, and a quick cilantro-yogurt blender sauce.  The secret to excellent tacos is a bunch of great toppings. I prefer my toppings be a mix of crunchy, sweet, […]

Date Night Rigatoni with Sausage and Kale

HELLO to the Februarys.

Polar vortex? End of Sugar Free January? Formal dating holiday coming up on the 14th? The time is now. Date Night Rigatoni is here, and it is here for all of it.

Why is rigatoni so good, actually? Why does pasta taste better when it’s in the shape of oversized chewy tubes with just the right amount of density and flop to them?

I mean, in this case, it could be because browned sausage and sauteed kale give just the right amount of hearty wintery-ness to the pan, or it could be the heavy handed garlic and crushed fennel seeds making the house smell like a restaurant, or it could be because the silky smooth tomato cream sauce speckled with red pepper flakes and delicate shavings of Parmesan just always brings out the best in everything.

Date Night Rigatoni in large pot

Or it could be because pasta is pasta. Full stop.

Here’s my challenge to you for your next date night, whether that’s with you and your dog, you and your baby, you and your special person, or all three (hi, it me): EAT LIKE YOU LOVE YOURSELF.

So… in other words, it’s time for Date Night Rigatoni.

Rigatoni with Sausage, Kale, and Parmesan

Things that would go well with this recipe:

Thank you to my friend Stephanie for introducing me to this recipe – I made some variations (hi, kale!) and a few other slight substitutions, but general concept came from her!

Date Night Rigatoni


  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb rigatoni + 2 cups reserved pasta water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped fennel or celery
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed or chopped*
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. Pasta: Cook rigatoni according to package directions in well-salted water. Reserve 2 cups of the starchy water when you drain.
  2. Sausage: Heat olive oil in a large, deep pot over medium high heat. Add the fennel and onion. Saute until very soft – about 10 minutes. Add the sausage. Cook, breaking into small pieces, until browned all the way through.
  3. Sauce: Turn the heat down. Add the garlic, fennel, and tomato paste. Saute until fragrant – about 3 minutes. Add the wine; let it sizzle out. Add the cream; let it come to a low simmer. Stir in the kale. Season with salt.
  4. Fall In Love: Toss sauce with the cooked pasta. Add reserved pasta water as needed to thin the sauce. Stir in freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Finish with red pepper flakes and more Parm. Serve with a glass of wine because THIS IS VERY ROMANTIC AND FANCY!

Notes

Fennel seeds: I would recommend using 2 teaspoons of fennel seeds if you are using celery instead of fennel. It will give you more fennel-y flavor.

Pasta: I recommend cooking to al dente so there’s still a slight firmness. That way the noodles will hold up nicely when you toss them with the sauce.

Literally, all you have to do is spend two minutes slicing up a few chicken sausages and green beans, throw it all on a pan and stick it in the oven.

I chose to use green beans but you could easily sub broccoli or even add a few extra veggies. If you’re a tomato fan, I’d suggest tossing some cherry tomatoes on the sheet as well. They burst open and add some juiciness.

Sheet Pan Gnocchi with Sausage and Green Beans pan shot

I tested this with both shelf-stable and frozen gnocchi and both worked just fine. Be sure to add the green beans halfway through so they don’t get over-roasted and stay crisp-tender.

I tried this recipe with a couple of sauces. My favorite was drizzling everything with balsamic vinegar after it was done and sprinkling with parmesan. You could also toss it in some marinara when it comes out of the oven, or serve marinara on the side for dipping. If you want to trend away from the Italian version, try using spicy chicken sausage and topped my bowl with some of my spicy green sauce.

bundt cake with white chocolate and walnuts 

This post is sponsored by California Walnuts. As always, all opinions are my own. 

I have another cake for you; this one is in Bundt form, studded with white chocolate and topped with candied walnuts (which, you may remember, is my new favorite treat). I love Bundt cakes because they fall in the dessert category of ‘simple but classy’, and can be eaten any time of the day without guilt or shame. 

I’ve teamed up with California Walnuts to bring you some recipes over the following year (such as this chocolate walnut cake and  this chocolate walnut shortbread). Over 99 percent of walnuts grown in the U.S. come from California’s walnut orchards, many of which are on family owned and operated farms that have been around for generations. Walnuts are nutritious and heart-healthy*, and offer 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber per ounce. Walnuts are also the only nut with a significant amount of plant based Omega 3 ALA (2.5 grams/ounce). You can check out the CA Walnuts website for more nutrition info, research, tips for cooking with walnuts, recipes. I’m excited to share more recipes with you!

Fairytale
At night, when we dreamed, 
we went down a street
and turned a corner;
we went down the street
and turned the corner,
and there, it seemed,
there was the castle.

Always, if you knew,
if you knew how to go,
you could walk down a street
(the daylight street)
that twisted about
and ended in grass;
there was
always, the castle.

Remote, unshadowed,
childish, immortal,
with two calm giants
guarding the portal,
stiff in the sunset,
strong to defend,
stood castle safety
at the world’s end.

O castle safety,
Love without crying,
honey without cloying
death without dying!
Hate and heartbreak
all were forgot there;
we always woke,
we never got there.
-Joy Davidman

I’ve been reading a biography on Joy Davidman, who is famous for marrying CS Lewis late in life, but was an author and poet in her own right. The book is well-written and interesting, and I’ve been highly enjoying her poetry as well (you can find all her poems in this volume). 

bundt cake with white chocolate and walnuts

Walnut White Chocolate Bundt Cake
4 cups (562g) all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups (452g | 4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3 cups (594g) granulated sugar
6 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup whole milk
1 cup (100g) walnuts, toasted and chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 cup (170g) white chocolate, chopped into bite-sized pieces

White Chocolate Ganache
6 ounces (170g) white chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup heavy cream

Candied Walnuts
2 cups (200g) walnuts
1/2 cup (99g) granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Adjust an oven rack to the middle position, and preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Grease a 12-cup Bundt pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle, beat the butter on medium until creamy. Add the sugar, and beat again until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add the eggs one at at time and beat on low until combined, scraping down the sides after each addition. Add the vanilla and mix on low until combined.

Add 1/3 of the flour mixture, and mix on low until almost combined. Add the sour cream, and mix again on low. Add another 1/3 of the flour mixture, and mix on low until almost combined. Add the milk, and mix again on low. Add the remaining 1/3 of the flour mixture, and mix on low until almost combined. Add the walnuts and the white chocolate, and mix on low until completely combined. Remove the bowl from the mixer and use a spatula to make sure the batter is completely mixed.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 55-75 minutes, until a wooden skewer or toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Move the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 20 to 30 minutes before flipping the cake out of the pan. Let the cake cool before topping with the white chocolate ganache and candied walnuts. 

For the ganache
Place the chopped white chocolate in a small bowl. Heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan, until it is simmering and just about to boil. Pour the cream over the chocolate, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit for 5 minutes. Remove the wrap and whisk the cream and chocolate together, until it is completely smooth. Let cool to room temperature. 

For the candied walnuts
In a large skillet, stir together the walnuts, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat until the sugar begins to melt and the nuts begin to toast, stirring almost constantly. Once the sugar begins to melt, turn the heat down to low and cook until the nuts are lightly caramelized. Pour the nuts onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let them cool completely before chopping.

*Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 ounces of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, and not resulting in increased caloric intake may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One ounce of walnuts provides 18g of total fat, 2.5g of monounsaturated fat, 13g of polyunsaturated fat, including 2.5g of alpha-linolenic acid, the plant-based omega-3.
