My mom made this every Sunday for as long as I can remember. I recall coming home from wherever I was and smelling this incredible sauce! I would immediately reach for the Italian bread to start dipping before dinner. My mom always said it wasn't done yet, but I didn't care! My brother would go through a half a loaf of white bread with this sauce before dinner...it was that good. Try to make it exactly as it is written out...you will be pleasantly surprised and your house will smell heavenly! The little bit of extra work is worth it!!!
A quick and easy way to prepare a tasty and filling pasta dish, originally from Mr. Food. Just use your favorite bottled spaghetti sauce. You can use any shape of pasta. I do add more cheese, but I love cheese!
My non-ricotta cheese-eating husband always raved about "the meat stuffed shells his mom used to make." His grandmother recently wrote to the TV guide (where this recipe originated) and they were kind enough to send back the recipe, dated September 13, 1976. I have to agree, these are delicious! Serve with a tossed salad and garlic bread. The prep time includes the pasta/beef cooking; the cook time is the baking time for the casserole.
I've got this recipe of my sister-in-law. I just love the combination of pasta, spinach cheese and tomatoes. Served with crusty bread and a fresh salad (plus a few bottles of red wine), it's perfect if you have a few friends round for dinner and don't want anything too formal!
A great pasta and ground beef casserole. Hearty and delicious. The beauty of this recipe (besides great taste) is it's ability to freeze (and defrost) so well, with no loss of flavour, making it ideal for OAMC (once a month cooking).
This super tasty recipe came from a co-worker who's wealthy family always made sure to serve this at their fancy summer parties. It is a snap to put together, making it perfect for families who want a meal in a hurry, or the host of party who wants something spectacular that won't keep them in the kitchen instead of with their guests. Either way, you will get the same rave reviews that I have over the years.
OK, the name's silly, but this version of pesto is really good! The recipe makes enough to generously sauce 1 lb of your favourite pasta. Developed for RSC #6. (edited to add that this recipe eventually won Ready, Set, Cook! #6. I am so proud of this creation and all the favourable reviews it has received - thanks to all who have tried it.)
Don't be put off by the long list of ingredients and instructions - it comes together really quickly and I'm a stickler for detail. This is really good and I do recommend you try spaghetti 'the Greek way'. I'm pretty sure you're going to like it.;-) If you want to make this a totally Greek dinner, then serve with a Greek salad, crusty bread, red wine, and fresh fruit for dessert.
Spaghetti with garlic and olive oil was, by far, my Italian grandfather's favorite dish and I ALWAYS think of him whenever I make it! For those of you with anchovy phobia, this dish works great with or without them. I've made it both ways. Be sure to adjust your salt accordingly if using the anchovies, because they add a lot of saltiness on their own.
A delicious and unusual spaghetti dish, completely vegetarian, adapted from a recipe in Vicki Wild's 'Wild Sides: an A-Z of essential, exceptional vegetable side dishes'. Well this one is certainly exceptional - there was nothing even remotely like it already posted - but to me this is clearly a main course dish rather than a side dish. Depending on taste preferences, you may like to substitute some of the stock for wine. When I now make this, I use Recipe #135453 for the stock.
