Italian Wedding Soup

By | January 16th, 2019|WayneBites|

I’ve always enjoyed this hearty soup. It’s great comfort food with a flavorful combination of meat and vegetables. The meatballs and soup are both easy to prepare and the entire dish takes less than an hour to make. You can adjust the heat with the red pepper flakes and use fresh oregano versus oregano paste. [...]

I first tried juicing them the traditional way by slicing them and squeezing. But, then I realized if I [...]

Pressure Cooker Meatballs In A Tomato Basil Sauce Over Creamy Cheddar Cheese Polenta

This recipe is a bit of a hybrid in that it uses the pressure cooker, the oven and the stovetop. But, the trio work well together to create a tasty dish. The pressure cooker also creates a nice sauce that can be used as a pasta sauce for a second meal. Nice bonus! Pressure Cooker [...]
