Unlike the fatty noodles you find in restaurants, our high-fiber noodles are served in a light, nutty sauce. This dish is delicious hot, at room temperature, or chilled. Try it with a crisp green salad for a more substantial meal.
Cher in Texas, Riffraff, and Bratty 1 have inspired me to post this recipe. It is a very humble dish and is usually my Sunday dinner. It is the Sunday dinner of many Italian-Americans. I know there are probably a million ways to make this dish--please give my version a try.
A quick and yummy pasta that can be served as the main course or as a side dish. From the BBC website. I like that this sauce is not overloaded with butter and does not use olive oil. Instead, it highlights the bacon, onion and cheese flavors.
This is the actual Macaroni Grill recipe for Carmela's Chicken Rigatoni. At home, I use a combination of olive oil (2 T) and butter (4T) instead of butter flavored oil (less overall as well). In addition, I use Kittencal's recipe for caramelized onions http://www.food.com/recipe/kittencals-caramelized-onions-89007.
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.
I recently had a back log of Southern Living Magazines waiting for me to go through. When I came across this pasta recipe, I just knew it was one I couldn't let get away without trying. I am posting it here so I will always know where to find it! This dish makes a great main course or side dish. I prepared this dish as soon as I had all the ingredients on hand and I have to say, it is as delicious as it sounds! This is a very easy recipe to add your desired amount of chicken or shrimp, if you like. I hope you think it looks as tempting as I did ; )!
I use a spring form pan to make this recipe. It is a great one to use up leftovers, but I didn't here. Substitute any of the ingredients at your pleasure. Serves 4 by itself or 6 with a nice garden salad.
I would rather have a plate of this over spaghetti any day. In the absence of a tomato sauce... the flavors really stand out. This dish originated in the red light districts of Italy when the ladies of the night needed a quick and cheap meal after a long nights work "at the office."
Rachael Ray says that her mother loves limoncello and she made this lemon pasta for her mom. My children love pasta in any form and they thought this was wonderful. I have to agree. Perfect for hot summer nights.
