Pizza Week – Day 2 – Roasted Veggie Pizza

Pizza Week – Day 2 – Roasted Veggie Pizza

Well, it was a good idea in my head. But not in reality. The roasted vegetables were fantastic. I just wish I didn’t use this dough: I thought I would get the same results (bubbly, crisp crust) but it didn’t turn out the way I […]

Pasta Salad with Roasted Vegetables.

Pasta Salad with Roasted Vegetables.

As long as you’ll roast 2 pounds of your favorite veggies and combine with at least 1 pound of uncooked pasta, your proportions should be alright for this recipe. I used up the veggies lying around in my fridge for this recipe. You can use […]
