Saute Turnip, Red Pepper, Mushroom

Saute Turnip, Red Pepper, Mushroom and Onion over Spaghetti

Saute Turnip, Red Pepper, MushroomAt most by far of the huge event get-togethers on my life partner’s side of the family, we for the most part have turnip beat with dim shaded sugar, so didn’t recognize what it would have a flavor like without any other person.

Red Onion & Rapini Spaghetti

Red Onion & Rapini Spaghetti

Red Onion & Rapini Spaghetti I used to despise when my mom would make rapini (aka broccoli rabe). It had this really bitter taste that I just couldn’t get myself to eat.
