This is the most popular dish I make. It's really meaty and cheesy and needs no extra sauce. It's really very easy to make. The easiest and fastest way to make this is to start the water for the pasta and cook that while you're cooking the meat and sauce and mixing the ricotta cheese mixture. I always make this the day or 2 before when I have time. This also freezes well uncooked or cooked. It makes a very full 9X13 casserole. You can use the lower fat cheeses. I hope you enjoy it!
This recipe came to me from my 90 year old Great Aunt Frances and has been in the family for over 100 years. It's a simple, make ahead dish, perfect to slide in the oven before you leave to go to airport to pick up family or to take to a potluck. Do with it what you will. Have fun. Bon appetit--
This recipe was on the back of a pkg. of spaghetti that I'd gotten from Sam's Club. It's great for a light dinner, or when you want to get supper on the table personally prefer to use fresh herbs whenever possible. I just feel it's worth the extra pennies to get the fresh flavor. When using wine in your recipes, use wine that you yourself would drink. Times do not include time for cooking spaghetti.I also tear a few leaves of basil and add to the sauce right at the very end of the cooking time.
This is a definite Italian classic --- the trick to perfect carbonara is to have your spaghetti hot and mix in the eggs very vigorously so the eggs will not scramble -- I most always add in some cayenne pepper for heat but that is only optional :)
I use Buitoni Low Fat 4 cheese ravioli found in the refrigerated section. I put 1 T olive oil in the instructions, but just use the smallest amount as you can to sucessfully saute your veggies and coat your ravioli. This is quick and easy.
Mmmm! Is this good! It tastes very gourmet without much work. I got this in an e-mail recipe exchange (similar to a chain letter) where each person shares one of their all-time recipes! Jenny who sent this to me said she adapted it from a recipe in Cottage Living Magazine.
This is a wonderful change from your everyday spaghetti and meatballs, I make this with my recipe#71273 *and* recipe#69173 but of coarse you may use your own favorite meatball and pasta sauce or use two 28-ounce jars of purchased spaghetti sauce, really you can use any amount of spaghetti sauce and meatballs you desire. Prep time does not include preparing or baking the meatballs. Serve this with garlic bread on the side and a small salad if desired :)
