This recipe from Sunset uses only one pan. Yup, a single pan! The secret is to use frozen cooked shrimp and prepared pesto. When I make it, I thaw the shrimp by putting them in the same colander I am going to use for the pasta. Then I pour the pasta and its boiling water over the shrimp, and--voila--thawed shrimp! The recipe is very pesto-y, so, if you like, feel free to cut down on the pesto and use more sun-dried tomatoes. Also, use whatever pasta shape you like (we prefer long noodles, for instance).
This is a very tomatoy Italian pasta dish with lots and lots of flavour! I got it out of a diet book published by one of Germany's most renowned women's magazine. So apart from tasting spectacular its also pretty healthy and good for you. :)
This is a throwback from my vegetarian days. It's also a quick dinner when you don't want to go to the grocery store as I almost always have these ingredients on hand. For extra fiber, I sometimes throw in some chickpeas. I often top this with fresh basil and shaved parmesan and serve with a crusty bread.
This is my family's favorite dish that I make. And it is sooo easy! It is enough for 6 adults. Or 2 adults and 2 kids, with more than enough to have for dinner the next night, and then lunch for 2 kids the next day. It's also good if you leave out the chicken.
This was pulled from the ww community. It's a yummy favorite. Great to reheat for lunch. Great as a main dish. I sometimes add peanuts, shrimp, or other protein. Substitute veggies or pasta, or your personal favorites. Napa cabbage can be used instead of bok choy.
A really special friend shared this recipe with me several years ago. It was his trick for dressing up those inexpensive noodles for his kids, and I think it is very good. This is great on its own as a quick meal, but can be an easy side for many dishes. We prefer the chicken or beef flavored noodles for this.
I started looking for something to do with my frozen meat ravioli for dinner tonight. Some inspiration from a few Zaar recipes, combined with the ingredients in my pantry, resulted in a dish that I think worked great.
If your family is sitting on the fence about spinach, you will want to give this recipe a try! This casserole will melt in your mouth and will convince your family that spinach should be served much more often! This is a "Company Worthy" recipe that will satisfy the most discriminating. Hope you enjoy it!
After watching Rachael Ray prepare her cold sesame noodles on TV, I tried it out myself and ended up tweaking it a bit before I was done. These noodles are usually half eaten before they get a chance to cool down!
I make this a lot and serve with Italian garlic bread and salad. It always gets a rave review, especially if the mozzarella strings with every bite. This recipe comes from my mother. I think she got it off the back of a "Mueller's Lasagna box.
