I Think Their Search Feature is Broken

I did a search on the Food Network website for “Chicken and Spinach with Pasta”

These are a few of the recipes that showed up on the second page of the search.

- Veal & Sage Meatballs and Pasta with Gorgonzola Sauce
- Pumpkin Ravioli
- Creamless Fresh Pea Soup with Snow Pea Salad
- Chicken Liver & Shiitake Custard with Edamame Sauce
- Mama’s Best Ever Spaghetti and Meatballs


It seems, my dear Food Network, that though your suggestions are, um, interesting they are not really what I was looking for nor did they meet my search criteria. Better luck next time…instead I am off to allrecipes.com !


  1. I'm definitely a fan of allrecipes.com.

    And I feel that the first recipe just made me puke in my mouth a bit.

    (I blame pregnancy.)

  2. Don't leave us hanging - did you find a recipe on allrecipes. com?

  3. Ky, you know that Meijer's commerical from a long while ago where the cute little girl goes "blech" when she eats the spinach. (if not youtube it to see what I mean) I made that same noise and face when I read a couple of those. It isn't just you :)

    A. - I LOVE allrecipes.com, I should have gone there first! I found a couple possibilities with cream based sauces (wasn't in the mood for that) but ended up just going with grilled chicken, spinach, and rice. YUM But my search on all recipes gave more of what I was looking for then flipp'n Food Network.
