Roasted Bruschetta Orzo

July has welcomed regular thunder showers! Therefore opportune moments to fit in some BBQ time are well treasured. This humidity though – apparently I’m ‘glowing’ and rocking some serious beach hair…in Northern B.C.!? Ok, so I love bruschetta – especially the ‘garlicky slurry’ my dad adds to his recipe. Watch out though, major dragon breath…

No peeling, limited chopping, & shorter simmer time. AND…

Creamy Summer Fettuccini

BasilChive CashewCream Spaghetti & Meat(less)Balls *Gluten Free

BasilChive CashewCream Spaghetti & Meat(less)Balls *Gluten Free. In all honesty, I felt just a little awkward typing the title for this one.
