This Skillet Greek Sausage Corkscrew Toss is no exception. Organic whole wheat pasta, tossed in light creamy sauce with all natural chicken sausage and fragrant bell peppers, sprinkled with fresh feta cheese and parsley. Dried oregano takes this dish to a new you, Greek Goddess, level!

Clean Chicken Artichoke Lasagna Roll Ups

OMG, guys, I have a new favourite Sunday dinner! These soft pillows aka chicken lasagna roll ups made out of healthy brown rice pasta and filled with clean creamy chicken, artichoke and spinach filling. Topped with cheese and tomato sauce and baked. No crazy Alex stories today as this dish doesn’t involve fish. In Vancouver salmon fishing is huge in Fall and he has been quite pre-occupied with that and working. Somebody has to work, right?! Haha. Thank you to all of you for reading this blog and…

Crockpot Pasta e Fagioli Soup with Kale

Pasta e Fagioli means Beans and Pasta with Kale, in my world. And I can’t believe I have only 6 soup recipes on my blog so far. Whaaaaaat?! I grew up on soups and I cook them quite often. Soups are fast, cheap and a great way to use any leftovers. You know that half tomato, yesterday’s sausage and 2 days old pasta?! Instead of garbage can, they go into Olena’s soups. If not for Alex, this soup wouldn’t be here today. I mean, Alex is a pretty…

Stovetop Squash Mac and Cheese

I have never been a squash fan. Squash. Whaaaaat?! I just, honestly, didn’t know what to do with it and let’s be honest – do your kids like squash? I don’t cook separate meals, so I try to split the suffering between us and the kids 50/50. Yesterday, it was Adam’s turn to whine and nobody else’s. But that little bugger…love him to death, my precious child…wouldn’t eat neither chicken chili con queso nor cabbage rolls casserole. I got away with pear & chia whole wheat pancakes though….

Light Soba Noodles Stir-Fry with Chicken, Kale and Peppers Recipe

Light-soba-noodles-kale-chicken-pepper

Healthy stir fry is a no brainer. Just combine some protein, vegetables and healthy noodles, and you are good to go. Soba noodles are quick to cook, usually made of a whole grain like buckwheat, which means they provide more fiber than wheat or rice noodles. Stir frying these noodles with a bunch of kale and other vegetables is a huge benefit. Also if you can find organic soba noodles like I did that would be great. I paid only $0.80 per package.
