    Lobster, cream, cognac, pasta…I’m in!

    This lobster pasta with cognac cream sauce is somewhat extravagant, I admit. But if you can get you hands on lobster without breaking the bank, or in the unlikely event that you should happen to have lobster leftovers, you owe it to yourself to try this dish. It basically contains pure goodness, if you ask me: lobster, cream, cognac, ripe cherry tomatoes, pasta and of course a generous sprinkle of good Parmesan cheese on top. Really, what’s not to like?

    Moroccan (low-carb) lasagna

    This Moroccan style low-carb lasagna recipe is a twist on ordinary lasagna. With three kids still living at home, we tend to make a lot of lasagna in my household.

Furthermore, we’ve experimented with substituting pasta sheets with zucchini, making this a healthier, more low-carb and less heavy lasagna. Add a good green salad, and you’ve got an amazingly tasty, good for you dinner that’s entirely pasta guilt free. Making this Moroccan (low-carb)…
