My kids will give up a steak dinner for this spaghetti. It is a recipe I have been perfecting for years and it is so good (if I may humbly say) that my kids are disappointed when they eat spaghetti anywhere else but home! In fact they tell me I should open a restaurant and serve only this spaghetti and garlic bread. In response to requests, I have posted the recipe for Recipe #28559 that uses approximately 1/2 of the sauce from this
recipe. Have spaghetti one night and lasagna later! Thanks to all of you who have tried my recipe and have written a review. I read and appreciate every one of them! Chef Note: After I posted this recipe I remembered a funny incident--my dear husband usually has a nice bottle of wine handy so when I make a batch of spaghetti I just help myself to a splash of it. On one occasion, there wasn't a bottle opened, but there was a bottle sitting on the counter so I got out the corkscrew and helped myself. For some reason, the spaghetti that night was the best ever. My husband asked what wine I put in it and I showed him the bottle. He nearly fell off the chair. I had opened a rather expensive bottle he had bought to give his boss. Goes to show you--don't use a wine for cooking you wouldn't drink. You get the best results from a good wine!
I remember this as being the de facto side dish, with a salad, to any lamb dish I had growing up, in my Greek grandparents' house. I make it quite often, and have never had a recipe, so beware, the measurements may be a bit off. I sometimes don't add the garlic and oregano, but they do add a nice zing to the dish.
To me Fannie Farmer's recipe is the only "real" Macaroni & Cheese. It's from my 1946 edition of "Fannie Farmer's Boston Cooking School Cookbook". With time on it's side - this recipe is hands down the best for traditional, homemade baked macaroni & cheese - comfort food.
Please Note: If you use CHEAP CHEESE you will end up with a BLAND and FLAVORLESS DISH!
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.
I was in Italy this summer and I came back with “several” Italian cooking magazines.
This recipe is from “Sale & Pepe”(salt and pepper).
It was very simple and fast. I really liked it.
I did use SUPER FRESH organic tomatoes and eggplant and I firmly believe that makes a huge difference.
Soba noodles are Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour. They are available in the Asian foods sections of many markets. If not, substituting spaghetti noodles for the soba will work. Sriracha chili sauce is the big red bottle with the rooster on it. You could substitute another chili sauce for heat if you wish (1/4 tsp will make a VERY spicy dressing, please change the amount to suit your tastes). This is adapted from David Waltuck's Staffmeals cookbook. I've cut the soy sauce in half and added broth because I found his version too salty. As written, this dish really won't stand on its own as a meal, it is a great accompaniment to other dishes with veggies and protein.
This recipe is versatile; you can add or change any of the vegetables. Keep it fresh and light.Have grated Parmesan cheese and the pepper mill on the table. Serve with a crusty bread and enjoy a taste of summer.
This is my absolute very favorite macaroni and cheese recipe and I have a large collection of m/c recipes. Adapted from Southern Living. I don't make this very often because I could literally eat the whole thing and lick the dish clean.
It is important that you use a good quality fresh cheese and grate it yourself - do not use the ready grated cheese for this recipe. I serve this with crisp crunchy rolls & a fresh green salad Great lunch or dinner
It looks like something from Christmas, tastes like something from summer, and makes you feel like you're over at grandma's. This is a nice, healthy, flavorful macaroni. Feel free to add a bit of shredded chicken if you feel like it.
I saw Rachael Ray make this on her show and I thought it looked delicious. I made it tonight and it was OUTSTANDING. The jalapenos definitely add a lot of spice to the cheese sauce, so if you have little ones you may want to remove some of the sauce and keep it separate for them before you add the peppers. The only change I made is that I added 2 cans of drained pinto beans. Rachael says this serves 4, but I think it serves 8 easily.
This recipe I make brings the house down! it's so delicious--try it for yourself. I don't bother with 2 sauces, just 1. Cook it all together and wait with chilled white wine and some good tunes!! (I'm from the uk so I hope the measurements are correct--forgive me if I'm wrong!)
