This will blow you away. The first time you serve this, you'll be ok because they don't know how great it's going to be. The second time you serve this, you better put it on the table and get out of the way FAST cause they are going to knock you down trying to get to it. It's a recipe that I have developed through years of making it over and over and over. This is the best version I have been able to create. NOTE: This recipe is to be used with 1/2 pound of spaghetti. If you are using 1lb of spaghetti, double the recipe because there won't be enough sauce for a full pound. If you are doubling it, don't double the lemon juice or it'll be too tart, just bump it up to 3 Tbsp. and only bump the lemon pepper up to 3/4 tsp or it will be too salty for some people. MANGIA!
This is a variation of Cioppino (Italian Seafood Stew). This recipe blends the subtle flavors of shellfish with spicy Italian sausage. The stock can be made ahead and reheated when ready to add seafood. I can serve the stock to "NON-FISH" lovers as well! Your guests will go crazy with this one. Serve with a loaf of crusty bread so they can get all of the stock!
This is a really tasty, easy dish that my mom always made for us as dinner during lent (meatless meals). I don't know if it was created out of necessity because it was 'cheap' to make or if it was passed down in the family, but I still love it and love making and eating it. (it's also a good way to 'sneak' cauliflower into your kids diet)
There is a method to making the perfect sauce and that is a very long slow cooking time then refrigerate to blend the flavors, a good sauce needs time to "ripen" and develop it's full flavor, this sauce must be made a day or even up 4 days ahead in order for the flavors to intensify, the longer you leave it refrigerated the better it will be --- this recipe makes a fair amount use what you need then freeze the rest in plastic containers for another meal, for a quick thaw just pop in the microwave for about 8 minutes or a little more or thaw in refrigerator overnight, if desired you may partially precook the meatballs on a greased baking sheet in oven before adding to the sauce --- you will love this sauce and you will be making it often! ---- also see my recipe#150207
This is heaven, being able to sit down and eat a whole bowl of bruschetta! It is pasta though so there isn't the browned factor unless you put it in a casserole and broil it for a minute. It is awesome served with blackened chicken or garlic shrimp as well.
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 is not a regular white clam sauce. Italian cookbook author Marcella Hazan adds butter and Parmesan to this famous clam sauce, a combination rarely used in other Italian clam dishes. The result is sensational!
It's our tradition to have these for Christmas and Thanksgiving. It's everybody's favorite. I always serve it with Nonie's Mandarin Salad. The recipe is off a pasta box, but I've changed it to use fat free cheeses and our favorite sauce. This recipe is awesome if you have a lot of people to feed and not much time.
