Welcome back to Recipe Wednesday; another avenue to promote your very best content, this time in the form of your most favorite recipes on your blog. Each Wednesday when you visit HLB you’ll find the theme for the newest recipe round up.
Some weeks our themes read like cookbook chapters, spotlight ingredients or flavors, or simply request the best recipe for a certain situation. Find an appropriate recipe from your blog archives to fit the theme and add to the collection. Or be inspired to create a new theme-friendly dish worth posting about before next Wednesday.
Each week we feature 20 fantastic recipes from our HLB Members [learn how to become a Member here: HLB Membership How-To,] giving even more exposure to some of the best content you’ve shared from your own kitchen. Let’s get to it, shall we?
Today it truly is ABOUT THE PASTA! We are all about celebrating National Noodle Month with this collection! Here are twenty of our favorite noodle-filled recipes from around the HLB community to add to your meal plan:
Thai Shrimp Noodle Bowl from My Bizzy Kitchen // A super light summer soup! It has just enough flavorful spice, and comes in at just 9 smart points for the whole bowl.
Potsticker Noodle Bowl from Iowa Girl Eats // Potsticker Noodles Bowls are a take-out fake-out recipe that taste just like potstickers! Prep and cook this mouthwatering, gluten-free dinner recipe in under 30 minutes.
Vegan Rasta Pasta Dish from That Girl Cooks Healthy // Jamaican rasta pasta recipe – A one pan Caribbean pasta dish with a medley of bell peppers, seasoned with jerk marinade and cooked in a creamy coconut sauce.
Gluten-Free Gnocchi via The Plantpower Way: Italia from Dianne’s Vegan Kitchen // Making homemade pasta is much easier than you think! Just follow the simple steps in this recipe for gluten-free gnocchi from The Plantpower Way: Italia, and you’ll have dinner on the table in no time!
Udon Noodle Bowl fgrom Cadry’s Kitchen // Udon noodle bowl is topped with a cheesy cashew sauce & browned Brussels sprouts. It’s a comforting bowl of goodness with an Asian flair. The creamy sauce is filled with the flavors of miso, sriracha, and tamari. Ready in just 25 minutes!
Quick Noodle Bowl from Confessions of a Fitness Instructor // I think all of us born in the 80’s remember growing up with the delights of Mr. Noodles. Those $0.33 noodle packs they kept us fed in the summers and in our first years in college and/or living on our own. Because I can’t bring myself to consume those pre-made sodium bombs any longer, I now enjoy making my own quick noodle bowl (aka homemade Mr. Noodles) at home.
Caprese White Bean and Pasta Salad from Chicago Jogger // This recipe is so simple I almost didn’t share it, but after making it three times this month I decided it was worth writing up. There’s nothing better than gorgeous summer tomatoes combined with greens, basil, cheese and pasta for an easy dinner.
Butternut Squash and Sage Pasta from The Happiness in Health // Whole grain pasta and butternut squash provide fiber, plus a hit of vitamin A from the squash, while olive oil provides heart healthy monounsaturated fat(ty acids) (or MUFAs, which I always thought was way too much fun to say — MUFA MUFA MUFA). Even the fresh sage is packed with antioxidants.
Baked Spinach and Ricotta Pasta from Kohler Created // By now you can probably tell that Neil and I love pasta. It’s simply the quintessential easy, versatile dish that allows us to make the best use of garden produce as it is picked and at a reasonable cost, keeps us eating frugally during the week as we try to save money.
Thai Sweet Chili Chicken Noodle Bowls from My Fresh Perspective // Skip the takeout and toss together these healthy Thai Sweet Chilli Chicken Noodle Bowls instead. It’s a perfect recipe for using up any leftover veggies in your crisper at the end of the week.
Vegan Manicotti fgrom Vega-Licious // While my vegan manicotti recipe is much lower in fat than the traditional rendition of this recipe, I shamelessly use vegan cheese in it…And it is especially perfect for those times when you are entertaining non-vegan Italian and comfort food loving guests.
Cajun Chicken Pasta from A Merry Life // This ended up being just as amazing as I thought it would be! Spicy but rich with freshness from the vegetables. I wouldn’t classify it as “healthy” with the bacon and cream, but I did try to add lots of veggies so my plate would be colorful and nutritious. This made multiple servings so I’m very happy to have leftovers of this delicious meal in my fridge waiting for me later in the week.
Spaghetti Nests from Eden Eats // A simple, impressive pasta dish featuring cheese and peas, these nests are an ode to Lady Gaga from 2011.
Shrimp Linguine Fra Diavolo from Fervent Foodie // Call it Shrimp Fra Diavolo, as the Italians say, or simply spicy shrimp with tomatoes and onions in a garlic wine sauce. Either way, this easy pasta dish is one to add to your recipe repertoire, pronto.
One Pan Peanut Butter Noodles from Lynn Chen // We all know pasta is just about the easiest thing ever to make, but I’ve been curious about this one-pan method by Martha Stewart. Apparently, if you make it in a shallow bit of water, you cut down on cooking time and have one less thing to clean. There are all sorts of recipes on the internet since that post went viral a few years ago. Since I probably make peanut butter noodles once a week, I decided to try my version of that.
Sausage Pasta Bake fgrom Hungry Healthy Happy // A sausage pasta bake is a delicious comforting dish that is perfect for batch cooking and freezing. Easy to adapt and add lots of vegetables to, it’s a simple weeknight meal that the whole family will love. Use any kind of pasta, any kind of sausage (even meat free), and any veg you have that needs using up.
Sweet Potato Noodle Bowl with Peanut Sauce from Veggie Chick // This Sweet Potato Noodle Bowl is the perfect meal for those that find sweet potatoes too sweet. It has a creamy, peanut-buttery sauce with the occasional flavor of sweet potatoes mixed in.
Lemon Shrimp and Asparagus Pasta from Crazy Running Legs // It was fast, involved very little prep, and the whole family ate it without complaint. Definitely a winner and something we will be repeating!
