I bought the cookbook that this recipe was in because of this recipe. It is a cross between spaghetti and lasagna and you don't have the mountain of left overs, like with lasagna. It's fast and easy and wonderful with garlic bread and a salad.
This is a dish I make only once a year. We invite friends to dinner. If there are any leftovers, I freeze them in single serving size bags and put those into a large freezer bag. This is labor intensive, and an all day affair for me. I like that the crosswise sections make me think of the Italian flag.
I just love lasagna! This one is great - it's loaded with vegetables... and cheese! I love the spinach in this dish! I adapted this from a recipe from BH&G Biggest Book of Italian Recipes. I made it as directed in the recipe (in a spingform pan - which looks great when you have company over!) but you can bake it in a 13x9 baking dish.
I love this dish! I could eat this once every week for the rest of my life. The extra effort it takes to assemble this dish is well worth it. You can halve this recipe, or cook in two separate 9 inch square pans. Any way you prepare it, this dish will definitely be a hit.
My Grandmother made this for us some 50 years ago. I have found it to be a great kid pleaser, even the fussy ones! It is affordable and simple to make. I like it better reheated for two minutes in the microwave and it freezes well.
This is a quick and easy dish to make. I substitute turkey ham for the ham and tastes just as good and it's better for you. This dish freezes well. I make two and stick one in the freezer for another meal.
I have a child that refuses to eat vegetables, but she ate them this time!Enjoy!
This is my version of a light lasagna recipe found in Self magazine. It can be frozen in individual size portions for later use. To further reduce fat, the ground turkey breast can be cooked separately and then rinsed with water and pressed dry before adding to the sauce.
This casserole is a favorite of everyone who has it. Every time I ask, "What would you like for dinner/your birthday/major event?" I am always surprised that the request is this simple casserole. My mother-in-law made this for my husband when he was a kid and it is still his favorite, and now my family requests it as well.
To me Fannie Farmer's recipe is the only "real" Macaroni & Cheese. It's from my 1946 edition of "Fannie Farmer's Boston Cooking School Cookbook". With time on it's side - this recipe is hands down the best for traditional, homemade baked macaroni & cheese - comfort food.
Please Note: If you use CHEAP CHEESE you will end up with a BLAND and FLAVORLESS DISH!
This is my kids' favorite meal. And it's so easy to prepare, that they often do it themselves! It's very cheesy! I've also made this and cooked it in the microwave during the summer. Freezing instructions included. If you prefer, you may sub in ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese.
From the Houston Chronicle, in response to a reader request. Very basic mac and cheese with mild flavor. When baked, the top gets nice and crunchy. Perfect for OAMC as directions for baking from frozen are included. Also very economical. I usually keep several foil pans of this in my freezer and throw one in the oven when roasting a chicken for a super easy meal. I like extra cheese on top.
