Tastes like lasagne but uses Mafalda, also known as "mini lasagne." Great dish to assemble ahead of time, pop in the oven when ready to serve. Good for potlucks. Recipe came from the San Giorgio Mafalda box.
this is a recipe i never thought i would like. but i LOVE it! it is so easy to make. sometimes i serve it over pasta, sometimes not. it's up to you. i have added meat to my spaghetti sauce before, but that really isn't necessary either because the eggplant is a meat substitute.
As a young kid running the streets with my friends, I remember going to the back door of the neighborhood tavern and begging the cooks for pierogies. Nothing tasted better than those pleaded for treats. Since I can no longer do that, here's the next best thing. Hope you enjoy.
We went south for Thanksgiving this year and this was served at dinner. This is baked and served right in a cast iron skillet; you can use a 12 or 15 inch cast iron skillet. Scrumptious; it's a side dish and dessert all in one! Prep time does not include the cooking and mashing of the sweet potatoes.
My grandmother NEVER told me this was eggplant, or I never would have eaten it. Darn it! I guess I really DO like eggplant. The nerve of her! Prep time includes time to allow eggplant "sweat" or drain.
Terri is a nurse/coworker who asked me to post one of her favorite recipes on here. She promises a great meal. Not for strict calorie/fat watchers but light cream can replace heavy cream, margarine in place of butter. Prep/cook time does not include cooking of the chicken.
Kids love this! I came up with this when company dropped in and my planned Sloppy Joes needed to be stretched. If you have a favorite Joe recipe, feel free to substitute or improvise. That's half the fun of cooking!
A delicious one dish meal that is full of flavor and will be cooked in less than 1 hour. The only prep time is for 2 cups of water to boil; and make sure the chicken is thawed if previously frozen. I got this recipe from my Brand Named Best Loved Casseroles book, in the "Dinner in Minutes" chapter.
This is one surefire dish that gets my picky 2 year old to eat anything in the "protein" group; he always asks for more. It's easy, delicious and creamy. The french fried onions and cheese (I've always used shredded cheddar) are the key ingredient in this recipe.
My family loves the "Jumbo" meatballs! Have you ever made stuffed cabbage, just to have the kids toss out the cabbage and just eat the meat? Your kids will be happy to see no cabbage here. My kids loved it served with mounds of mashed potatoes. Prep time may be less.
For those who hate Ricotta Cheese but still want to eat lasagna. A real kid pleaser! I grew up on this, and this is the way my family likes it. (I order lasagna with Ricotta when eating out!) But I do love it this way too! Please feel free to adjust ingredients (veggies, spices, meat) according to your family's preference.
