Don't recall where this recipe came from years ago, but it is one of the few salmon recipes that I really like. Note that 1.75 cups of cold baked salmon can be substituted for the canned salmon. If the final product seems too dry for your taste, additional red wine vinegar and olive oil can be added.
My grandmother started making this dish for us when we were kids. That was quite a few years ago! She once commented that she must have made a dump truck full of macaroni for us. I still make this -- it's comfort food for me. This is a very butter/tomatoey dish. It's not spicy and meant to be bland so that the creaminess of the butter, the tang of the tomatoes and the flavor of the pasta shine.
A great side dish or a meal on its own. This is a Polish/Hungarian dish. Can use bacon but I cut back on that to make it meatless. Also can garnish with poppy seeds. Adding peas for color and nutrition. Bacon is a yummy addition for those that eat meat. Just brown drain most of the fat then add butter and oil and brown onions. Be sure to give the onions a nice brown color using a med high heat.
Made with penne and the parmesan, this is a meal in a pinch for me, needing maybe just a slice of toasted bread rubbed with garlic. Made with curly egg noodles, this is an ideal side for anything from a piece of a cooked turkey to a thick beef stew.
Preparing this lasagna takes just 10 minutes because the noodles are not precooked. Raw noodles are layered with ricotta and mozzarella cheeses and surrounded with a tomato-wine sauce that cooks the noodles until tender. Can make up to 24 hours in advanced.
A nice hearty well seasoned beef-wine sauce to serve over pasta. I generally use Merlot for the wine because that's my favorite and I can serve the rest of the bottle with dinner. Sometimes I add another vegetable if I have one on hand, such as sliced mushrooms, peas or green beans.
