- Pasta with White Clam Sauce (see recipe below)
- Spinach Salad with Sundried Tomato Vinaigrette
- Rosemary Scones
- Ginger Pear Tarts
Pasta with White Clam Sauce is a terrific 30-minute main course. Spinach Salad with Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette, Rosemary Scones, and Ginger Pear Tarts complete this Italian-inspired dinner. Start the scones first, and bake while the rest of dinner is being prepared. Grab some premade vanilla pudding for the tarts.
Pasta with White Clam Sauce
Spinach Salad with Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette
In a blender, puree drained, sun-dried tomatoes with your favorite oil and vinegar Italian dressing. Three pieces of tomato per 1/4 cup of dressing is a good ratio to follow.
Stir 2 or 3 pinches of crushed dry or minced fresh rosemary into the amount of all-purpose baking mix called for on the package for making 1 batch of rolled biscuits. Bake as directed.
Ginger Pear Tarts
Sponge shells are usually found in the produce department. Spread a bit of vanilla pudding in each; top with sliced pears and a sprinkle of minced candied ginger. (You can stir some ginger into the pudding if you'd like a lot of sweet-spicy flavor.)
