This is different from most "white" lasagnas on the site....it has ground chuck in it. Of course, you can substitute ground turkey or even chopped chicken, but I think it tastes best with the ground chuck. This is very creamy, cheesy, and rich!
From Ina Garten. She says this is a nice way to give grocery store tomatoes that yummy summer flavor. It's a very flavorful tomato dish, made with a garlicky pesto (if using her homemade recipe - but you could also use store bought), so she recommends pairing it with something mild like fish. *prep time does not include making your own pesto. Note: Make sure to slice your tomatoes at least 1/2 inch thick.
I saw this on a cooking show on TV and it's now my favourite recipe for making noodles. The food processor does all the hard work of kneading the dough for you. I usually dry my strips from the pasta machine a little before cutting them into noodles. They seem to separate better that way. I then put meal size quantities in zip lock bags and freeze This saves hanging them up to dry.
Watch these disappear! The shells are cooked al dente stuffed with creamy cheese and tender baby spinach topped with a tomato mushroom sauce then cooked in the oven where they plump up. And have you wanting more.
This beautiful appetizer consists of an Italian chopped salad that is mounded into cooked pasta shells. It can be made up to four hours ahead and the romaine salad will remain crispy for serving.
Note: To give proper credit, this is an adaptation of recipe #29329, which uses chicken as a main ingredient. In the version I am posting, the chicken is eliminated and the chopped salad is garnished with salami and feta cheese. I also make my own vinaigrette, but if you prefer, just use a bottled Italian dressing.
Here's a simple pasta dish that is very colorful. The original recipe did not include the fettuccine, so I'm guessing at the amount and the cooking time for the pasta is not reflected in the times. I have also made this with oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, and used a little of the oil for sauteeing the scallions and garlic, which to me, adds a little more flavor.
This is not at all hard to put together, it's an amazing dish to serve to dinner guests and I have done so many times over the years and have always receive rave reviews from everyone at my table and you will too! --- to save time saute the onion, garlic and mushrooms up to a day ahead, the cream cheese and Dijon mustard mixture may be increased slightly -- I always serve this with recipe#149547 drizzled over or on the side of the plate, you will *love* this!
Original recipe. Please note than quantities cannot be exact, as much will depend on the size of your bread! Do make sure that the ingredients are as dry as possible, as one wants to prevent a soggy bottom. Always start the filling with the driest ingredient, as a buffer against the inevitable juices! Use salt sparingly, as many of the ingredients are naturally salty.
Pronounced pahsh-teh-CHEE-kee; just one is a pasztecik. Great peasant food dating back to the 1700's. Paszteciki are hot, savory, hand-held pastries usually served with clear soup, especially barszcz, typically filled with meat and/or mushrooms or sauerkraut & mushrooms. There is also a vegetarian version filled with rice, eggs, and onion and seasoned with dill.
So easy to make your own pita pockets, and even EASIER to do it in the bread machine! Kids love these for car trips or picnics; can't help but feel adventurous with one of these in the lunch box! NOTE: If you don't have a bread machine, you can STILL make this recipe...see DIRECTIONS at the bottom. COOKING TIME includes rising time
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
