Homemade Pesto

No store-bought jar of pesto can compare to this easy to make fresh homemade version of basil pesto. Classic recipes call for pine nuts and if you have them by all means go ahead and use them. I find walnuts to be more economical and I like the flavor a little bit more. When tossing with pasta, mix with some of the starchy pasta water to thin pesto.


Uncle Andy’s Macaroni & Cheese

Another classic from Grandma's recipe collection. She credits her brother-in-law, Andy Bertha, as her source for this recipe. This is a quick & easy recipe to make for a family dinner and pairs perfectly with meatloaf.

Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups

This is a great pot luck dish, it is easy to make ahead of time and freezes well. I recommend serving with garlic bread, Caesar salad and a Loma sized glass of red wine.
