My Dish Picks from FoodGawker | 2009.04.23

tomatoes tart :: wilm mushroom filled pasta :: green beans :: meyer lemon cake :: kim\'s picks on foodgawker

My stylish living philosophy includes beautiful, tasty and healthy choices when it comes to home cooked meal. Making one special dish may be enough to create a simple meal into something extraordinary.

+ The first recipe is from a mother of 2 who lives in New Zealand. Bron Marshall enjoys growing her own vegetables and collecting fresh produce. This a recipe she made using her latest crops of tomatoes. Cherry Tomato Onion Tart with Parmesan Crust

+ Serving pasta is a sure bet. This Wild mushroom pasta dish is served on top of a bed of fresh pea shoots, then smothered in a Crimini Alfredo. Michelle of Life, Lightly Salted made her own creamy sauce. She also used prepared Alfredo sauce but I prefer to make my own Alfredo sauce. Between cooking the pasta and making the sauce she had dinner on the table in 20 minutes. The trick is that she used pre-made fresh pasta.

This recipe was made with the new Wild Mushroom Agnolotti by Buitoni, which blends earthy mushrooms, including sweet, rustic portobellos and delicate criminis. The mushroom is paired with fresh-roasted garlic and imported Grana Padano and Parmesan cheeses. The mixture is wrapped inside thin layers of stone-ground semolina pasta. Buying fresh agnolotti at the supermarket or a local fine Italian shop is a good time-saving option when you do not have time to make your own stuffed pasta.

+ Side vegetables are essential to every meal. The Green Beans with Feta and Dill looks festive. Via Cooking on the Side.

+ Then, with the extra time, you could bake the superb dessert. Helen from Tartelette tells us how to bake individuals Lemon Poppy Seed Cakes with Meyer Lemon Mousse.
