We love pasta! It can be rustic or sophisticated. It can be so simple it takes 15 minutes to throw together, or you can spend all day slowly simmering a 'to die for' spaghetti sauce. When the cupboard is bare, you can always count on pasta to get you out of trouble! Have a go at some of these favourites!

My kids will give up a steak dinner for this spaghetti. It is a recipe I have been perfecting for years and it is so good (if I may humbly say) that my kids are disappointed when they eat spaghetti anywhere else but home! In fact they tell me I should open a restaurant and serve only this spaghetti and garlic bread. In response to requests, I have posted the recipe for Recipe #28559 that uses approximately 1/2 of the sauce from this
recipe. Have spaghetti one night and lasagna later! Thanks to all of you who have tried my recipe and have written a review. I read and appreciate every one of them! Chef Note: After I posted this recipe I remembered a funny incident--my dear husband usually has a nice bottle of wine handy so when I make a batch of spaghetti I just help myself to a splash of it. On one occasion, there wasn't a bottle opened, but there was a bottle sitting on the counter so I got out the corkscrew and helped myself. For some reason, the spaghetti that night was the best ever. My husband asked what wine I put in it and I showed him the bottle. He nearly fell off the chair. I had opened a rather expensive bottle he had bought to give his boss. Goes to show you--don't use a wine for cooking you wouldn't drink. You get the best results from a good wine!
Give us a cold, rainy day here at 'Avalon' and we'll say - gnocchi for lunch! It's quick, easy and tastes divine! We always keep some gnocchi on hand in the pantry - literally for a 'rainy day'! This recipe makes 2 generous serves.
This is so quick and easy and makes the most delicious light supper you'll ever eat! Please try it, it really is stunning! I've adapted this recipe from Australia's "Better Homes and Gardens" magazine, but it is a traditional Italian way of serving spaghetti. The quantities given serve 2, but just double them to serve 4.
This is a very simple, fresh tasting dish - perfect for a light weekend lunch or dinner. As the sauce is prepared while the spaghetti is cooking it really only takes about 20 minutes all up from kitchen to table. It's one of our favourites.
Cooking the meatballs in simmering pasta sauce will not only add so much extra flavor to the sauce the meatballs will be melt-in-your-mouth tender, you may of course oven-bake the meatballs for about 25 minutes, --- don't be afraid to add in more Parmesan cheese and a little more milk, there is no need to measure exactly, this recipe is pretty much foolproof, leftover cooked meatballs make a wonderful pizza topping just slice thinly and freeze until ready to use ----- these also make wonderful juicy burgers shaped into patties-- for more of my tried and true recipes check out my food blog at www.kittencalskitchen.com
This is a recipe I got from my father who got it from a little old lady he knew from Italy. I always simmer this sauce with my meatballs (recipe posted). You can also add sausage if you like. This sauce is to die for!!!!
This is the first recipe I've ever submitted, so hope you like it! It is a wonderful and ridiculously easy pasta recipe. You can add more garlic, and serve it with garlic bread for the garlic lovers like me!
