Easy Apple Butter

This spread is autumn’s sweetest sensation, stealing the show as a condiment and lending rich flavor to some of our favorite fall recipes.

Test Kitchen Tip: Use a wooden spoon to draw a line through the apple butter on the bottom of the pot; if the line holds for 5 seconds before the apple butter merges back together, it’s finished cooking.

Garlic-Butter Spinach and Bowtie Pasta

Homemade pasta dishes don’t get much easier than this one. It basically takes you the amount of time it takes to boil the pasta, but the butter, garlic, basil, and spinach make it fancy. It’s probably the quickest Olive-Garden-Chef’s-Special type of food you’ll ever make! You will even feel all-Italian (unless you are Italian) because there’s going to be a big pot of water with pasta on one end of the stove, and another large skillet at the other end. And you’re going to be stirrin’, and crushin’, and seasonin’… ooooooh, you gonna have a great time with this one!pasta bowtie garlic spinach
