My 2 most favorite things to do when Im not working or doing my duty as a husband of my beautiful wife Melissa, or father to my twin 15 year old daughters Erin and Allison, is to Cook and Golf.

I am a creator in the kitchen, I dream up recipe concoctions during my work day or even in my sleep and experiment with my ideas when I have time at home

Today, I spent time thinking about a few recipes that I like and how I could combine them into a great new dish.

How could I take a gourmet mac n cheese, and combine it with a great spinach soup recipe that I have with tons of butter, and cheeses including cream cheese, jarlsburg swiss and fontana cheeses?

My cooking mostly starts caramelized onions, Not sugar added, not soda added, but rather cooking the onions so slowly that you drive out the moisture, and then change starches to sugar.  See my video lesson here

So tonight, I boiled about 3 cups of chicken broth in a large pot, added 3 bags of baby spinach, 2 tablespoons minced garlic, a cup of caramelized onion, various steak seasoning spices, teaspoon of crushed red pepper, 2 cups heavy cream, a stick of butter, a large wedge of jarlsburg swiss cheese and another of fontana cheese probably about 2 cups shredded of each and cooked through about 10 minutes

Cooked a box of penne pasta for only 5 minutes then threw the pasta into a large casserole dish with the cheese sauce mixture, some shredded chicken from a previous roasted chicken meal topped with a cup of shredded pecorini romano cheese and baked for 45 minutes.

Dont worry about under cooking the penne- it sucks in the liquidy cheese sauce and turns out perfect

Dont be afraid to explore…. Change from spinach to broccoli or another vegetable you crave, change the cheeses you use, go without meat or change to another meat or even seafood.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments about my recipe creations

Enjoy!
