Dirty Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo - In honor of our anniversary trip to Italy this week, I thought I would post some of our favorite Italian dishes.

Here’s my version of this restaurant favorite:
Pasta with a Garlic Mushroom Cream Sauce and Roasted Tomatoes - Oh man, I love this pasta. Actually, I love all pasta, but this one is something extra special. It’s a combination of everything that is good in the world brought together into a single dish. Did I mention that I love this pasta? Here’s how you make it:
Homemade Tomato Sauce - There is just no comparison to homemade tomato sauce. After you try my version, the jarred stuff will never cut it for you again. This sauce is easy and can be thrown together in no time. It’s perfect with pasta and meatballs, spooned over chicken parmigiana, or baked into a lasagna. Here’s how I make it:
Creamy Polenta - Polenta is one of those side dishes that is super versatile and goes well with almost anything. If you’ve never heard of polenta or never tried it before, I highly recommend giving this recipe a go.
