Spaghetti Squash with Black Truffle Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Amy No Comments

You may already know about my truf­fle obses­sion. If not, check out my truf­fle ravi­o­li or truf­fle quinoa! And this, ladies and gen­tle­man, is my Pri­mal ver­sion of a truf­fle Alfre­do. It starts with a tra­di­tion­al bechamel sauce using unsweet­ened coconut milk, an almond-meal based roux, and deli­cious Ital­ian truf­fle cheese from Trad­er Joes (which you can also find at Whole Foods and oth­er spe­cial­ty stores). I added cau­li­flower purée to thick­en the cheese sauce and sneak all those extra vit­a­mins and Read more […]

You guys will nev­er believe it BUT you can make Paleo Pas­ta right at home!!! My broth­er found this won­der­ful recipe on the Paleo Cup­board. Amy, you are a Paleo GENIUS!! (Must be in the name ;)). The pas­ta dough is made from a com­bi­na­tion of almond meal, tapi­o­ca flour and arrow root pow­der, so don’t be fooled, it def­i­nite­ly still has a lot carbs  if you’re focused on los­ing weight or main­tain­ing body com­po­si­tion, but it is gluten and grain free and com­plete­ly hand-made for those days you Read more […]

I still remem­ber when my dad first saw an idea for this recipe from Mario Batali on the Food Net­work many years ago. He always gets so excit­ed about new recipes, espe­cial­ly pasta–must be where I get it from! I have been in love with this dish ever since he first made his much more excit­ing ver­sion of it, and have adapt­ed it into my own over the years. It is a great com­fort­ing hearty dish for a win­ter day, one where you are cheat­ing and eat­ing pas­ta of course. I think this sauce could also be could Read more […]

Truffle Cheese Ravioli in Walnut Cream Sauce

Truffle Cheese Ravioli in Walnut Cream Sauce

A friend of mine had been ask­ing me to make ravi­o­li for her, and I couldn’t stop think­ing about dish­es with black truf­fles, so I decid­ed to cre­ate a black truf­fle cheese ravi­o­li. I didn’t have time to wait for a jar of black truf­fles to come in the mail and couldn’t find them at any of my local gourmet food stores, so I set­tled for truf­fle cheese and black truf­fle salt I had in the pantry (I loved sprin­kling it on pop­corn with Pecori­no cheese before my Pri­mal days). The ravi­o­li def­i­nite­ly had a truf­fle Read more […]

I have so many recipes to share from the hol­i­days which I thought I would be blog­ging over my vaca­tion, yet I found myself busier than expect­ed. But 2013 is here and I am back to blog­ging and back to eat­ing pri­mal! I had more than my share of Christ­mas cook­ies and pas­ta over the last cou­ple weeks–it feels great to be grain free again! Keep­ing the hol­i­day spir­it going, I’d like to share this recipe with you. And although I’m includ­ing the home­made pas­ta, this bolog­nese sauce goes great with roast­ed Read more […]
