Sicilian Stelline pasta


1 large clove of fresh garlic, minced

2-3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive oil

1 box of Barilla Stelline star pasta

2-3 cups of chicken broth

Zest of 1 large Lemon

1 large Lemon,  Juice

1-2 Tbsp fresh Basil, minced

1-2 Tbsp fresh Mint, minced

Salt Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Died Cranberries (Craisins)


In a nonstick saucepan saute your minced garlic in 2 tbsp olive oil for 1 min. Add in your stelline pasta to toast and stir well. Add in your chicken broth- it should completely cover your pasta but not too far drowning. Bring to a boil and cook for 7-8 mins, stirring often so it doesnt burn… add more chicken broth if needed.  In a separate bowl zest your lemon and the juice of that entire lemon. Add in the rest of your olive oil, basil, mint, salt and pepper to that bowl and mix.  The stelline should be well cooked… taste to see if its al dente.  Pour your mixture ontop of your stelline and add in your died craisins and stir well and serve. Enjoy!

I am a mother of two Allergic kids, one of whom is severely allergic to Dairy, Eggs, Peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish, moderate to Soy and coconut. I have had to learn how to cook a lot from scratch in order to have food in my home that is safe for my family to come in contact with and to eat. I personally don't want anyone to feel left out ever and I especially don't want my children to not be able to enjoy at least some of the same foods just because they are allergic to basic ingredients. So with some good motivation I have taught myself how to cook and bake and I have come up with some great recipes to share with the world. I want to make it easier on other people in similar positions. Hopefully I can help other people to be able to also enjoy foods that previously would have been thought to have been off limits.
