This is my favorite spaghetti sauce recipe. It comes from a freezer cookbook called Once a Month Cooking. This makes alot so plan on freezing about half of the recipe. You can use this sauce on spaghetti, manicotti, veal (or chicken) scallopini, or French bread pizza
Spaghetti with garlic and olive oil was, by far, my Italian grandfather's favorite dish and I ALWAYS think of him whenever I make it! For those of you with anchovy phobia, this dish works great with or without them. I've made it both ways. Be sure to adjust your salt accordingly if using the anchovies, because they add a lot of saltiness on their own.
This is one of the tastiest ways to perpare broccoli (for a side dish, leave out the pasta). Don't let the anchovies scare you: because they're chopped so fine they melt into the sauce, leaving just a hint of briny flavor that's a perfect complement to the herby broccoli.
I found this on another recipe site many years ago and it became a favorite back then. I recently came across the recipe again and thought I would share it here. Originally by Tracy Seaman in _An Italian Christmas Meal_; "Food and Wine", December 1994.
Are you craving that great Mexican rice from your favorite taco stand? Here it is. This is just like a good Mexican restaurant rice. Many recipes taste good... but the texture just isn't right. You know how it is... you have prepared scores of Mexican rice recipes but always have been disappointed. It may be delicious but kinda "gloopy and wet." Try this. Everything is pureed and cooked in. There are no chunks of anything... just dry fluffy rice with all the seasonings and just the tiniest hint of a tomato flavor. I will throw away all of my Mexican rice recipes- this is the one I have been looking for for years!
I don't own a rice cooker but some people have had disappointing results using one. You will also need to adjust your cooking time if you want to use brown rice. I recommend following the cooking instructions as directed. Proceed at your own peril if you stray.
This is a delicious salad served only in the summertime in Japan. I really miss being able to drop by the convenience store and pick up one of these for a fast and easy meal. It's wonderfully refreshing, especially when there's no air conditioning available. Cook time refers to boiling noodles.
