From the Feb/March 2012 Taste of Home Magazine. Submitted by Patricia Harmon. She notes "In a classic Italian Wedding Soup, the meat marries the vegetables in a broth. Which type of meat and which vegetables are subject to change, according to your arrangements. Chicken goes well with the savory trio of onion, carrot and celery, with meatballs and spinach in supporting roles."
This was inspired by another recipe I tried here, but by the time I made changes to make it healthier and to accommodate what was in my fridge, it really was a completely different recipe. It is a cross between the noodle kugel I grew up with, mac & cheese (minus the cheese) and baked creamed spinach.
My favorite pasta dish is Linguine Alle Vongole or linguine with clam sauce. This quick version uses tomato pesto which adds a really nice flavor to the dish. If you can’t get tomato pesto, you can use basil pesto. Big fan of clams? Use 2 cans but only liquid from 1 can. The trick to this recipe is to make the sauce while the linguine cooks so that it’s all ready at the same time. Buon Appetito!
This will blow you away. The first time you serve this, you'll be ok because they don't know how great it's going to be. The second time you serve this, you better put it on the table and get out of the way FAST cause they are going to knock you down trying to get to it. It's a recipe that I have developed through years of making it over and over and over. This is the best version I have been able to create. NOTE: This recipe is to be used with 1/2 pound of spaghetti. If you are using 1lb of spaghetti, double the recipe because there won't be enough sauce for a full pound. If you are doubling it, don't double the lemon juice or it'll be too tart, just bump it up to 3 Tbsp. and only bump the lemon pepper up to 3/4 tsp or it will be too salty for some people. MANGIA!
A very spicy and garlicky but easy white clam (or any shellfish) sauce for pasta, but obviously the spice level can be altered. Even "toned down", it's absolutely delicious! Serve it with a crusty baguette and a salad - yum yum yum... and so, so easy!!
This comes from the December 2008 issue of Cooking Light. I love the flavor of roasted cauliflower, so this sounded like a great and easy combination. Their recipe calls for mild turkey italian sausage, but I think this would be good with any italian sausage, mild or spicy.
This is an approximate verision of Carrabba's. This is served in the restaurant as a side dish but would be just fine as a main dish when pancetta is added in. Cavatappi pasta is a short tubed corkscrew or S-shaped pasta. It can be hard to find but I was able to find it called "Twists" by the pasta brand DaVinci (blue bag).
I love alfredo and wanted an easy recipe that my 7 yr old daughter could make. The key for me was letting her chose the type of pasta to use. When she made this recipe, she chose penne AND rotoni. This is a recipe everyone can enjoy and anyone can make in many variations.
Couldn't seem to find a recipe I liked so I made my own and thus far all my friends have enjoyed it, hope you do too. Also its really important to use freshly shredded/grated parmesan, nothing pre-shredded/grated will melt correctly and it will be grainy and lumpy.
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Great for pasta night! This is one of my family's mainstay dishes and better than you get in the restaurants! We make it as a one-dish meal and just add crusty bread. Easy preparation!
These noodles are wonderful if you need a quick side dish. They use ingredients you may already have in your pantry making them a great last minute dinner addition. The recipe comes from Canadian Living's Make It Tonight.
