Creamy Potato-Leek Soup

I thought it was good but I always think Potato soup is bland so I added two shallots and a little more tyme. I also used salted butter instead of unsalted as the recipe called for and low sodium vegetable broth but found I had to add more salt than I should have. So next time I'll use salted butter and regular vegetable broth. The consistency was perfect.

Baked Ziti with Prosciutto

I've made this recipe although with a little more proscuitto than the recipe calls for and with no exageration everyone loves it. The cream is not an issue because you want to cook the ziti or penne, which is what I use, al dente or a little less than al dente. This way the pasta will absorb some of the liquid as it continues to cook. The last time I made this I doubled the recipe for my birthday party and 8 people have asked me for the recipe. I haven't given the recipe to everyone who asked and believe it or not after 3 months I am reminded to send the recipe. Oh, this is not just for adults. My 4 kids love it too!!!
