Menu Monday | New Recipes To Try

The best Pinterest recipes that you have to try!
It’s the last Monday of the month! That means I’m teaming up with my friends Come Home for Comfort and Polka-Dotty Place to share our favorite recipes from this past month that you HAVE to try!

There are so many recipes to try on Pinterest, that I forget to actually make them. At least this forces me to try a few recipes that get pinned.

Here’s a rundown of what I tried!

Mexican Quinoa Stew | This was AMAZING! Really easy to make, and it had all of our favorite flavors. I was missing some feta cheese to top it off with, but otherwise it was perfect. Definitely making this again.

Pesto Pasta Salad | Confession – I didn’t make this pesto…. but this recipe did serve as inspiration to clear out some pantry items I had stored up! Win! I had some jarred pesto from Trader Joe’s and some sun dried tomatoes, so I just whipped this up. It was a yummy pasta salad, and I plan to make this again for an upcoming potluck!

Lightened Up Sun-dried Tomato Pasta | Have I talked about this one? For the life of me, I can’t remember…. we ate it for the first time in a long time and I forgot how good this is! It tastes like a fancy fettuccine alfredo. I don’t know if you could really call this a “lightened up” version (hello cream cheese, mozz and parm!) but using sun-dried tomatoes is a nice addition!

Roasted Tomatoes with Goat Cheese Polenta | This was the highlight of the month! There were zero leftovers after this meal. I really had to hold back from licking my plate. If you want to make something new this month, let it be this. Roast some asparagus as you roast the tomatoes and it would be a great complete meal!

What are some amazing recipes you’ve tried lately? Have you peeked in your trusty recipe box recently?

    I’ve never had polenta, but that looks amazing!! I’ve also never made my own pesto so that jarred stuff is perfect for me. So many yummy dishes this month 🙂
