This has to be one of the yummiest macaroni and cheese recipes you'll ever eat, especially if you like some zip to your mac. You can use almost any kind of small pasta shape for this recipe, bow, shells, spirals and penne are good choices.
Here's some good, down-home Pennsylvania Dutch cooking for you--dried beef is very popular here. This recipe proves there's more that you can make with it besides 'S.O.S.!' Serve with salad or a green vegetable and you have a meal that really sticks to your ribs on those cold winter nights.
Very bold. If you are not a garlic lover, don't try this recipe. This is an adaptation of Spaghetti a la Carbanora. The garlic and egg are both raw, but don't worry, the butter melts, the egg cooks ever so slightly, the cheese melts and an indescribably heavenly amalgamation takes place. From the Best of the Best from Arkansas Cookbook.
This is like a wild and crazy version of a garlic and oil pasta sauce..with sun-dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers and TONS of garlic. My re-creation of a delicious dish served at Painter's Tavern in NY state. It was one of my favorites on their menu and has become one of my signature dishes. I am finally attempting to nail down measurements for this recipe, as this is something I make entirely by feel. I serve this with Soleo or White Zinfandel wine and nothing more than a simple Caesar salad. I use Carapelli extra virgin olive oil and Parmigiano Reggiano for the cheese. The restaurant never served theirs spicy, but my family likes things zesty. The waiter would come around and grate fresh cheese and cracked black pepper over each portion.
