This is a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe my mom has made all my life and it is my favorite dish. She usually serves it alone or with some small side dish, because everybody fills there plate with the pot-pie. My husband never heard of it till I made it for him. Now it is one of his favorite dishes.
I looked everywhere for an easy baked spaghetti that did NOT use mushrooms or cream of mushroom soup (husband is allergic). I am happy to say I found it. You could add mushrooms, green pepper, olives, etc. to this dish for added variety, but I like it just the way it is! This makes a great family meal...just add a tossed salad and some garlic bread, and dinner is ready in about an hour.
This recipe is one of the better Baked Spaghetti's I've tried. I think you could easily shortcut with prepared sauce and such, but you must use angel hair pasta and Jack cheese. It makes this!
**edited to add: I have tried to increase pasta per reviews, but this does not work! You come out with a dry pasta! Please make just as written and rate on the recipe as written!
My mom made a similar recipe for this comforting dish, and I still remember the wonderful aroma of chicken and dumplings cooking throughout the house. She didn't make it often, but when she did, what a treat. I especially loved the light, tender dumplings, which is still my most favorite part of this dish. (In a pinch, Bisquick dumplings are also very good). For those of you, like my good friend Cindy, who like a more Southern style of dumpling (heavier, chewier), the recipe is at the bottom. This recipe is from Steph's Country Kitchen Goodness. This is my favorite website for recipes.
I originally found this recipe at Recipe Goldmine but have added and subtracted after trial and error. The original recipe called for a 10 oz pkg of frozen peas to be added during the last 15 minutes of cooking. I usually add a little rosemary and cayenne. Can add the spices you wish. This is very good!
Recipe is from www.TopSecretRecipes.com I received an email today from Ron from RecipeSecrets.net and here is what he had to say:
Ron here from RecipeSecrets.net - hope all is well.
When I used to work in NY city, I would eat lunch at Chipotle
Mexican Grill at least twice per week. I simply loved their
burritos and I was not the only one. The line would literally be
out the door starting at 12:30pm. We would fax in our orders in
advance to avoid the ridiculous lines - that was until other people
caught on and began faxing in their orders also :-(. Even so, it
was always well worth the wait.
Here's a recipe from Chipotle which I'm sure you'll love. Special
thanks to Kaci for posting this on the Secret Recipe Forum.
I originally found this taco casserole recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. Since then, I have made this recipe at least 50 times. I love it because the ingredients list isn't complicated and, based on the layers, I can readily remember all ingredients when I am at the store without my recipe card. I have served this for myself and had wonderful leftovers or many times I have made it for company with a nice green salad to accompany it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Bit like a pizza casserole but this has a crust so theoretically you could pick it up and eat it like regular pizza, but half of the toppings would probably slide off. The toppings listed are mostly suggestions try it this way or using your favorite toppings instead.
This is a really good basic lasagna recipe. It's based on one I found somewhere, but I've tweaked it quite a bit to suit my own tastes. I like it as written with italian sausage, but you can substitute ground beef if you must.
My non-ricotta cheese-eating husband always raved about "the meat stuffed shells his mom used to make." His grandmother recently wrote to the TV guide (where this recipe originated) and they were kind enough to send back the recipe, dated September 13, 1976. I have to agree, these are delicious! Serve with a tossed salad and garlic bread. The prep time includes the pasta/beef cooking; the cook time is the baking time for the casserole.
Like my father's rib recipe which I've also posted, this is a recipe which some old buddies of mine recently requested that I post. Back when we all were a little younger, the guys used to come over everytime my Dad made his lasagne. Maybe it was the free meal or maybe it was just that good but this recipe is the reason why lasagna has always been one of my favorite foods. I know that you can substitute ground beef for the sausage (or use both combined) with equal success. I've posted this as 6-10 servings but I know from experience that 4 big guys can polish this off and still ask for more.
