If you want something filling, try this. It isn't for someone counting calories. I had stuff in the cupboards and started to throw things together and I came up with this. Feel free to add whatever you like.
I was looking throught my freezer and cabinets and came across some Italian Sausage and jarred Alfredo sauce. And since I didn't want the usual Italian sausage with red sauce,and wasn't in the mood for regular alfredo. This is what came out of the dark corners of my brain :)Please feel free to use red,green or yellow peppers. Or if feeling really creative try all three.;).I used Angel Hair pasta, but you can use your favorite type of pasta. Submitted to "ZAAR" on July 18th,2008.
I had some leftover bits and pieces, and I wanted to clean out the " Fridge ". So, I mixed them all together and came up with this recipe. If you try this, change the amounts of seasonings according to your tastes. Serves 6 with a side salad.
This is my kids' favorite meal. And it's so easy to prepare, that they often do it themselves! It's very cheesy! I've also made this and cooked it in the microwave during the summer. Freezing instructions included. If you prefer, you may sub in ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese.
This was adapted from Giada de Laurentis's recipe, which she calls "Farmer's Pasta." It is a macaroni and cheese dish that will appeal to young and old. In a pinch, I have substituted 8 ounces of mozzarella cheese for the 8 ounces of Fontina. Great dish for entertaining!
Easy 6 ingredient Triple meat (pepperoni, sausage and hamburger) lasagna made easier by using frozen cheese ravioli instead of the noodles & ricotta mixture. Tastes just like regular lasagna but much better with the meat combination. A must if you are a meat lovers pizza fan. (and fabulous even if your not). A wonderful new spin on lasagna that I just threw together for a birthday dinner.
I saw this recipe on 30 Minute Meals by Rachael Ray on the Food
Network. It looked so good I had to try it out. I have to say, it tastes as
good as it looks! It really does only take 30 minutes, maybe less once
you get used to making it and don't have to take the time to look at the
recipe. On the show, she makes her own tomato sauce, but I just used a
jar sauce, which takes less time and tastes just as good.
I love reading cookbooks as if they were romance or mystery novels. Had read several recipes one night and decided to take one ingredient from several pages, and this was the result. My mom couldn't believe how I created the recipe, but she ate it and lived! Cooking time is in the microwave!!
I found this in one of those little check stand cook booklets. This one was in Campbell's - Slow down to Cook Faster. I enjoyed it, and although it's shown as a main course, I'd use it more as a side dish. It does border on the bland for some, so experiment with spicing it up a bit. I found my 2-quart baking dish wasn't large enough and had to transfer to a larger one.
This is a wonderful way to use up all those bits of cheese left over in the fridge. The idea comes from Weight Watchers and it lends itself to using cheese you have on hand. Of course, Weight Watchers recommends reduced-fat cheese and there were quite a few changes made by me. To ensure that the sauce is nice and creamy, make sure that one of the cheeses you use is a processed cheese. True comfort food!
I got this recipe out of a FAMILY FAVORITES cookbook that was put together at a school for a fundraiser. This is the best Alfredo sauce I have ever eaten . It is so easy to make. You could make a lighter version by useing light cream cheese. Not nearly the amount of calories of regular cream
I love the fact that this is a baked ravioli in a cream sauce that is quick and easy to prepare. It's delicious, and the mushrooms can be cooked ahead to save time at the dinner hour. I've tried cheese ravioli and spinach/cheese ravioli -- both are great!
Finally, finally! I finally found an alfredo sauce recipe that doesn't use cream and still tastes good! I have concocted this dish with shrimp and broccoli, but do use the sauce anytime you want a creamy alfredo-type sauce; it's very good and very versatile. And the sauce can be prepared while the pasta cooks; even better!
This is one of the recipes I adopted from the Recipezaar account. I chose it because a local restaurant makes a similar dish that I absolutely love. Susie in Texas was kind enough to test out the recipe and I have incorporated her suggestion of reversing a couple of steps. The directions now read according to her suggestions. I hope you enjoy it!
