Made a lobster roll? Still got leftovers? Don’t like lobster rolls? Love pasta? Well then this dish is for you! Another easy recipe utilizing leftover (or fresh) lobster. Given that i’m not a huge fan of really rich pasta sauce, I have made a butter free sauce, allowing the lobster and parmesan cheese to provide plenty of rich, hearty flavour!

Rather than try and combine both posts into one, I decided to create another one, as some people might be turned off by the idea of deep fried ravioli, and not notice that you can boil these into healthier, delicious ravioli!
Start off by making this Spinach Pasta Dough, once that is made proceed to the recipe.

A Kevin O’Leary inspired recipe, a strange thing you might think? Turns out he provided great inspiration for this tasty dish!
This is what we know about Kevin.
- He can be a little full of himself from time to time…
- He certainly “brings the heat” to hopeful entrepreneurs
- He is all about the “green” (a.k.a $$$$)
- His favourite restaurant in Toronto serves Italian food
- He is a wine connoisseur
Well it’s obvious isn’t it?! We need to make an appetizer that’s full of itself, can handle the heat, is green, perhaps Italian, and maybe even has some wine in it! So it came to be, The Kevin O’Leary, a.k.a Deep Fried Ravioli Stuffed with Spinach & Ricotta, served with a Spicy Tomato Sauce!

We were recently contacted by Cookin’ Greens to develop a recipe for their upcoming appearance (March 24th) on the Dragons’ Den, where they will be presenting their innovative “farm-to-freezer” product line. Given that we have the power of two minds behind BS’ in the Kitchen, we were asked to tackle the meanest of all the “Dragons” Mr. Kevin O’Leary! Our challenge was to create an O’Leary inspired appetizer using Cookin’ Greens Chopped Spinach.
Here is what we made (Deep Fried Spinach Ravioli stuffed with Spinach and Ricotta). Of course they can be boiled, rather than fried (I actually think I prefer them boiled!).

A dedicated Bon Appetit subscriber (and recipe maker), it wasn’t until last month (when I saw foodie friend Dan’s Goodside’s pork chop) that I noticed they encourage you to “Cook the Cover” and then feature some of the recipes. Given how delicious their February cover looked, I had to give it a go! I adapted the recipe to fit to the ingredients I had on hand, swapping out the ground pork for ground turkey, as well as cutting most of the ingredients in half. I should also mention, that at 5:00PM, when I was just about finished cooking the ragu (or so I thought), I noticed it’s supposed to simmer for 4 hours…!!! Well I sure as heck wasn’t about to wait until 9:00PM to eat the delicious smelling ragu in front of me! So I simmered it until the pasta was done boiling and enjoyed my shortened version. Even though I didn’t cook it nearly as long as the recipes suggests, it had great flavour. If you’re in a rush, and don’t want to simmer it for 4 hours, don’t worry, it will still taste great!

With fall upon us, out come the sweaters, colorful leaves, and MASSIVE amounts of Autumn inspired food appearing in the blogosphere! Not wanting to leave our blog out of all the action, I present to you Halloween Pumpkin Pasta! As I was actually shopping for some new fall clothes (think thick plaid button-up shirts, and comfy sweaters) when I came across this awesome looking pasta. With our other ventures into striped pasta garnering an impressive number of hits, I knew this had to be blogged! Of course, I wanted to make something in the spirit of the season, so instead of a typical pasta sauce, I gave a pumpkin based sauce a go!

Some of you faithful BS’ers may remember Bob’s black and white bow-tie recipe, well I’m taking my run at them now. At Home Sense, I found the exact same pasta, but this time blue and black. While this pasta is cute and fun for the occasional dinner, I personally wouldn’t add it to my regular diet just because of the high amount of dye in the pasta. But let’s get to this recipe…
