I won't lie, this recipe is a lot of work, high in fat and high in calories. It will take a couple hours to make and I only do it once year on my husband's birthday. All that said, it is so worth it. If you want to break you diet this is the one to do it with. My mother says she got the recipe when my father was stationed in Germany in the 70's. I don't think she even remembers the original source any longer. Of note: I have never used the chicken livers, but the original recipe does call for them. Plum tomatoes are difficult to find these days and you can substitute any canned tomato you like.
To reduce calories, fat and sodium, you can opt for a light Alfredo sauce. For a spicier dish, increase the amount of chipotle chiles. Recipe is from Family Circle. I like to use "Recipe#111347" for the prepared alfredo sauce.
Courtesy of Giada DeLaurentiis! I made this today after sitting on the recipe for quite some time. I am sorry I held on to it. It will be in my regular rotation from now on, it was easy, quick and very tasty. I will change a few things though...I will use tomatoes with Italian seasoning and maybe a little more cheese next time! I even think it would be good if you added some ricotta to the mix. There are a lot of possibilities, but it was good as it is written. I doubled the recipe and it was fine. Enjoy!
This is a wonderful side dish that would go with many different dishes. Our whole family loved the smell while it was cooking - then sampling before dinner it was hard to stop! I think the fresh basil really gives it wonderful taste. It's easily halved for a smaller group. This recipe is from the Aug '03 Gourmet magazine. Try it!
This casserole may be made with regular white rice, but it is much better using converted rice, as regular rice tends to get too soft when baking, when boiling the rice try not to over cook it (see note on bottom of page). Prep time includes boiling the rice and fying veggies. This is a very tasty rice dish!
This is a recipe I have been playing with for years and have finally perfected. It's a flavorful spin on your ordinary Alfredo sauce and it only takes about 45 minutes total! I have to make it for my mom every time she is in town.
I came up with this one a number of years ago and it was published in CL's reader recipes. I must be honest--when I make it I increase the blue cheese some and add crisped prosciutto on the top. Yummy!!!
