I found this recipe on another website (don't remember which one). They are really easy and very good. Much better than a buttered noodle, although there is a lot of sodium. I use low sodium chicken broth.
This is the best Alfredo sauce ever. This is several recipes combined into one. You can also add your choice of meat (chicken, shrimp or even crab). The closest OLIVE GARDEN is an hour away and I will never drive that far again just for Alfredo sauce. I promise this is the best sauce ever. Definitely a dish you would want to impress your guest with.
An old family recipe from St. John Lutheran Church member, Lillie Kauitzsch, Bartlett, Texas. A much better taste than store bought. I also remember my great-grandmother making noodles like this when I visited her in Oklahoma, many moons ago. Preparations time is an estimate.
I used to love the boxed side dish "Noodle Roni Parmesano." I hadn't seen it in store shelves for quite some time, so I played around until I came up with something close to it. As it is just me and my DS at home these days, I intentionally developed the recipe as a side dish for two (or a main course for one!) Although I haven't tried it, I would imagine the recipe would double easily enough.
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.
Made with penne and the parmesan, this is a meal in a pinch for me, needing maybe just a slice of toasted bread rubbed with garlic. Made with curly egg noodles, this is an ideal side for anything from a piece of a cooked turkey to a thick beef stew.
This recipe is part of my Czech heritage. My grandmother made these by the dozens to feed the 9 kids in the family when my dad and his brothers and sisters were growing up. All of the kids learned to make these and my dad made these every time we had roast duck or roast pork when I was growing up. They take some time to make and you will make a mess in your kitchen making them, but they are wonderful. The ladies at the local church make these by the hundreds for the annual Czech Days celebration every June to serve with the roast pork dinner that they sell at the hall. I usually make a double batch when I make them and then freeze the leftovers to have on hand when I don't have the time to make them. They are also great the next day sliced and fried in a little butter or sliced and mixed in with scrambled eggs.
A traditional Polish recipe I learned from my mom who learned it from her mom. This is extreme comfort food and is great the next day for breakfast, warmed up in a fry pan with a couple eggs scrambled on top.
This is NOT for the health conscious people out there. ;-)

A great way to use left over potatoes. Every Christmas Eve we had perogies. They do go fast so we'd fight over them. The fillings are unlimited. Cabbage, Cheese, Fruit, mushrooms, sauerkraut or check out my Recipe #146547
FYI: add a touch of herbs to one dough and paprika, curry, cinnamon to another when making a couple different fillings so you can tell which is which. Just do complement the fillings!
Haluski is a pan fried dish that both of my grandmothers used to make of butter, onion, cabbage and noodles. It makes a delicious main or side dish, whatever you're in the mood for. I personally like to let my cabbage get a little brown, but adjust your cooktime as necessary to your preference. The serving sizes will depend on how you are serving it.
These HEAVENLY morsels go well in soups, stews and recipes with chicken. I prefer to make them very small because the flavors seem to go through better and they are one good bite! My mother use to make these to put in green beans. The combination is great! They also go well in green pea dishes. UMmmm...comfort food. Easy to make and rich.
This is my favorite standard dumpling recipe from the cookbook "White Trash Cooking." This is not a light and fluffy dumpling but more like a noodle, but not really pasta. They hold up well when making homemade chicken and dumplings. This is incredibly easy and I'm still unsure why it works so well but I won't complain.
My grandmother used to make three different kinds of gnocchi (potato, spinach and ricotta). If you are not familiar with "gnocchi", they are a type of home made pasta (similar to cavatelli), usually made with a potato or cheese based dough.
My nanna was from Italy, I loved it when she made gnocchi. It is a very time consuming process, but well worth the effort! The recipe can be varied with the addition of other ingredients (spinach, pumpkin, mushroom, herbs...) just let your imagination run wild! Serve with any sauce that tickles your fancy & lots of parmesan!!!
