Buitoni’s Pasta – Chicken Marsala Ravioli and Roasted Butternut Squash Agnolotti

[Translate] A bunch of Buitoni’s Chicken Marsala Ravioli and Roasted Butternut Squash Agnolotti Recently, Buitoni Pasta was generous to ship me a thoughtful package consisting of their limited distribution of fresh filled pastas – Chicken Marsala Ravioli and Roasted Butternut Squash Agnolotti to experiment, a soft bamboo fiber hand towel, an apron, and a cutting board from Vermont. My personal mission is to create simple, easy but flavorful sauces to enhance the pasta eating experience.

[Translate] New Year dumplings topped with Beluga Kaluga caviar & Homemade turnip cake “lo bak gao” Happy New Year! Admittedly two days late from posting but better than never.

Le Creuset pans are beautifully rustic that I can cook my..
