Easter Frittata with Asparagus

asparagus frittata

Easter is right around the corner, so I wanted to share a traditional meal with you; Frittata with Asparagus. It’s really simple and takes very little time. So let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • 8 eggs
  • Pound of Asparagus
  • 5 Bacon Strips
  • 3 Tablespoons of Butter
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Black Pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Linguine with Truffles Recipes

Tonight I will like to share with you a special recipe, Linguine with Truffles. The truffles were hard to get, but I was eventually able to get them specially ordered by Sickles Market in Little Silver, NJ. Watch my video below for step by step instruction on how to cook this recipe!

Ingredients:

  • Black Summer Truffles
  • Linguine

  • Parmigiana Cheese
  • Black Pepper

Then you will need to put 6 tablespoons of butter and few sage leaves into a pot, with the heat level on low. Let the butter and sage cook slowly, letting the butter absorb all of the sage flavor. Once the water starts boiling, add in your linguine pasta.
