Welcome to my recipe blog. I created this blog so I could share my high calorie recipes. My daughter, Rachel, has CF and I'm always looking for recipes loaded with calories. I hope you see a recipe you'll want to try. Happy browsing.

Pasta Bolognese

This recipe is so creamy and full of garlic.  I've never made anything like this before.  To be quite honest, I've never made any pasta sauce from scratch.  I was very easy and the whole family liked it.

Calories per serving - 602 - just sauce (add about 300 cals for pasta with butter; cals vary with pasta type, but they all see to be pretty close)

Geez, I should have calculated the calories BEFORE I fixed my plate.....ooops for me, but awesome for Rachel! 

Yum.  Pasta Bolognese with grilled squash
