Lemon Baked Chicken Paillard Over Citrus Ramp and Veggie Angel Hair Pasta

Easter Egg Dulce De Leche Dream Bars

These gooey dream bars are kind of like a brownie that has bathed in Dulce de Leche sauce.

Not into pepperoni in your pasta, sub out for chicken or pork Italian sausage (de-cased) or ground meat. Vegan? Add in more veggies to stir fry and veganize the cheese. Either way, you’ll be happy Ramps made a guest appearance at your party.
