Spicy Baked Pasta with Cheddar And Broccoli

Bon Appetit

Looking at my most recent posts, it is pretty obvious that I’ve been going back to the same source over and over… But why not? BA’s recipes are consistently delicious and most often a joy to cook. This recipe doesn’t look to be any different.

Looks like it comes together quickly with a 30 minute bake time. 90 minutes if you’re taking your time with it.


Butter Chicken (BA’s Best)

Bon Appetit

Hands down the best indian food I’ve ever made. Blending the sauce is key. Combined with rice and some Naan (or cauli for Keto), this recipe will make about 7-8 servings. Does great frozen. Will be a go-to for meal prep.

120 mins including marinade.
