Adapted slightly from the recipe on a package of Italpasta lasagna noodles. You can substitute 1 kg (2.2lbs.) frozen mixed vegetables; cook frozen vegetables according to package directions. If using frozen spinach, thaw spinach; squeeze out liquid and discard; chop spinach. Adjust seasonings to taste; for example, add basil, oregano, thyme or Italian seasoning to taste. I used the empty can of tomato paste to measure the water, and didn't boil the spinach with the other vegetables. You could add or substitute other favorite vegetables such as bell peppers or zucchini. Served with toasted garlic kaiser rolls and a green salad.
Since macaroni is the featured ingredient for May 2004, here is an easy one-pot stove top macaroni and cheese recipe my friend gave to me. My family likes it served with toasted buttered garlic bread and a green salad.Use one or more of the variations provided to suit your tastes and to use up leftovers.
A vegetarian recipe that my mom got from a friend named Debbie Shannon years ago. She called it 3 cheese lasagna, but I have counted and there are definitely 4. One of my favorites because it is so easy, no pre-cooking the noodles! Mushrooms and zucchini can be layered in for a bit more nutrition too. (Or ground beef, if you are not interested in keeping it vegetarian.)
Me and my brother shawn has discovered a hobby we can spend time with eachother every saturday..It is a bundle of joy to cook with my big brother...Once you try to make your own pasta, you'll never buy from the store again..guarntee,unless there are lazy cooks out there...Good luck to all...When you put your heart in cooking, your food will be delicious.
A great use of leftovers, and one of Bird's Dad's best recipes for a budget. Amounts are rough estimates, as it just depends on how much 'leftover' stuff you have available. Salt and black pepper are the only spices needed for this dish, although peppery makes a nice kick to it.
A fabulous always-requested recipe! I stongly suggest buying block cheeses and grating/shredding them fresh for the most flavorful macaroni and cheese you will ever taste. For a healthier version, try Recipe #272413.
Add Italian sausage and serve with a salad of spring greens and garlic bread as a main course or as a fresh side dish to any other main course. Either way, it is a delicious, fresh summery dish. Note: Please do not use canned tomatoes in this dish and do not over cook the cauliflower. The canned tomatoes turns the cauliflower into a very unappetizing pink color.
I used combinations from a lot of recipes over the years to come up with this. This is perfect for a weekend, when folks are staying close to the house. Once it's in the pot, it doesn't require a lot of attention, and it makes the house smell wonderful!
Ever wonder what to do with the leftover meat toppings you didn't put on your pizza? Well, I had some italian sausage and pepperoni left over and this is a recipe that I came up with that I wanted to share with you all. My italian sausage was already cooked but if you wanted to use raw, you could omit the butter and oil and cook the onion, mushroom and garlic with the sausage.
We are Italian and if you go through my recipes you'll find alot of wonderful, quick and easy pasta dishes. We love our pasta and we love garlic, too! Serve this with garlic Texas toast. I can't eat pasta much anymore because I'm diabetic but my husband and daughter love it so I keep making it for them. I usually eat salmon (I have one or two good ones for salmon, too- check them out).
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.
