Spring is near and the Husbands are here to kick things into high gear. Open your windows and let in some fresh air—the birds are singing, the sun is shining, and it’s a beautiful day outside. It’s the beginning of California Avocado season and we have a new pasta recipe that is colorful, delicious, and filled with seasonal produce that we are excited to share with you. We are always up for a challenge, and when California Avocados asked us to create a new dish that uses little to no food waste, we got busy testing in the kitchen and came up with… dare we say a pasta paragon?

Listen carefully. Those are the sounds of sparkling bubbles. We are clinking glasses and sipping something fizzy today because this new recipe deserves a celebration. We wanted to create a classic marinara sauce that is bold and memorable, so we tested and refined it until it was just right. Toss it with your favorite pasta, use it as a base for your next pizza night, and treat yourself to shakshuka the next morning with any leftover sauce. No matter how you decide to use it, this magic marinara is truly a classic. Also known as Husbands’ Marinara, we’d like to let you in on a few of our secrets.

Two posts ago, we wrote all in rhyme
We have another poem, if you don’t mind
The holidays are here and filled with cheer
We’ve one more recipe before the new year
Winter pesto is what we’re sharing today
When we first tried it, we exclaimed, “No way!”
Too good to be true, so tasty indeed
We hugged each other and both agreed
We must share this with the world for everyone to make
And recommend you pair it with our chocolate puddle cake

Quick post today! Last month, we were invited to an intimate multi-course dinner and cooking demo hosted by Barilla and pasta expert Nancy Silverton, chef and co-owner of the world-famous Osteria Mozza in Hollywood, CA. Inspired by her main course—Baked Barilla Collezione Tortellini with White Truffles—we created an original dish using some of the tips we learned from Nancy that evening. Introducing… Tortellini Mac and Cheese with Roasted Garlic and Rosemary! Cooked to perfection and blended in a creamy, cheesy sauce made with roasted garlic, three types of cheeses, and fresh rosemary, this elegant pasta dish is also topped with toasted breadcrumbs for a delightful golden crunch. We are taking mac and cheese to a whole new level, people. Make this comforting entrée tonight and add it to this year’s holiday menu!
