Patty’s Pasta

This recipe seems to fit my expectations of  Guy Fieri.  It has  an edge to it.  I think it is the horseradish.  Since, I can’t cook meat and dairy together, I had to make the decision whether to make this with the corned beef or cheese.  In truth, the corned beef had a lot more appeal, especially for a change of pace, but practically, I had cheese and did not have corned beef, so gushy cheese came out the winner or perhaps, we came out the winners.   I used about half of the cheese called for and it oozed cheese, anyway.

  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1/2 cup small diced carrots

  • 1 1/2 cups diced cabbage

  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots

  • dash of  black pepper

  • 1/4 cup white wine

  • 1 cups heavy cream

  • 1  cup  milk

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 teaspoon whole-grain mustard

  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish

  • 2 cups grated  Cheddar 

  • 3/4 cup fresh peas, or frozen

  • 1 pound cooked spaghetti (I used brown rice pasta)

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan


In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, add the butter and 1 tablespoon canola oil. Add the carrotsand cabbage and saute until they are just tender and the cabbage is starting to caramelize, about 20 minutes.

Stir in the shallots and saute 3 to 4 minutes longer. Add  black pepper.

 Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Add in the cream,milk, the mustards and the horseradish. Let simmer until the sauce has tightened up a bit, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shredded cheese and adjust seasonings, as needed.

Stir in the peas and the pasta, then transfer into a serving dish. Serve immediately garnished with the Parmesan.

Ginger Carrot Soup with Apples – Guy Fieri

Tonight was a choice of the Heirloom Tomato Soup or the Ginger Carrot Soup.  I could have gone in either direction but at the moment, I was going to cook, carrots won out.  I made this in a crockpot.  Check the original recipe here.

With apologies to Guy, I did make some changes, basically with the topping which I eliminated.  I also added chopped apples, an hour before the soup was completed with some thin sliced carrots.  The soup was very thick. after blending, and I added 2 cups of Rice Dream to thin it out, a bit.  This was not a gutsy  recipe, as I think of Guy’s recipes but, in no way, did this fail in flavor.  It had a delightful  flavor and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
