Buternut Squash Ravioli With Panchetta And Sage
Ceaser Salad with Star Croutons
Recipe: Ceaser Salad Dressing
Making your own dressing is soooooooooo much better than anything bottled. It does not take that much time and the taste is light years better! I am known for my Ceaser Salad. Shhhh, don’t tell how easy it really is!
Rough chop freshly washed romaine lettuce. Add dressing, freshly grated parmesan cheese and star croutons. Toss and serve immediately.
Click HERE for Ceasar Dressing and look for the recipe on Tuesday’s menu.
Recipe: Star Croutons
These are so much fun and really look wonderful in a salad. Just watch them, they burn quickly!
10 slices day of dense, thin white bread (I use Pepperidge Farm White)
tiny star cookie cutter (1 inch)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut crusts off of bread and reserve to make stuffing or breadcrumbs. Cut out stars using cookie cutter. Brush with butter and lightly sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake until golden brown. I don’t want to give a time~ watch them! They go quick!!!!

Meanwhile, add bullion to hot water and dissolve. When rice is slightly browned, add water and put a lid on the skillet. Cook until gently simmering.
