This is an authentic tasting "ragu" sauce that is super rich and super flavorful. The bolognese portion of this recipe can be served over any thick pasta, as well as, be the primary component of this lasagna. I happen to LOVE this lasagna and have been tweaking it for years. I'm not a fan of ricotta cheese based lasagna's and as you'll see from this recipe...this is coupled with a beschemel type sauce rather than ricotta or cottage cheese. You can spice this one up further (I sure do!) with crushed red peppers in your sauce. You can also tone it down with mild italian sausage or turkey italian sausage. The Bolognese sauce can be made up to 3 days in advance and warmed up to make for the lasagna. This lasagna is also best baked right after assembling or the pasta will absorb the sauces and dry out. Enjoy!!
Don't know where I originally got this, but this is the best alfredo sauce I have ever had outside of a restaurant. I have made it with or without the cream cheese, and with all Parmesan, and it still turns out great. The nutmeg is essential!
A quick and easy batter becomes a batch of golden brown “dippers” that are heavenly when served with warm marinara sauce. We love them, super easy and always good for everyone! Do-Ahead Tip: You can prepare these puffs ahead. Cool puffs, wrap tightly and freeze. When ready to serve, place in muffin cups and heat in a 350ºF oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until hot

I saw Nick Stellino make this dough and use it to make four calzones. It will also make two pizzas. I've done both and they turn out wonderfully! My key to a great pizza is to slice everything VERY thin and to not pile it on too thick. Our usual pizza is feta, garlic, freshly grated parm, fresh spinach, toasted pine nuts, tomatoes, mushrooms, mozzarella, a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper. I highly recommend it!
This is a quick lowfat meatless dinner, easy because it uses items always on hand, and different because the sauce is milk rather than tomato based. Got this from my friend Diana and make it often. If I have time, I like to use fresh spinach, lightly steamed, and fresh Parmesan cheese.
This is slightly similar in taste to an alfredo sauce, but with a few critical, less-fat differences. True alfredo sauce is made with butter, cream, chicken stock and flour. This sauce is made with olive oil, butter, garlic, and a bunch of other fresh ingredients. I created this in about twenty minutes after a long day at work, trying to use what I had on hand in the kitchen. I knew it was a "keeper" when my notoriously picky (butter-and-cheese-ONLY-please) toddlers loved it. If possible, you'll want some crusty parmesan bread to sop up the sauce!
Get your fix for baked Italian pasta right at home! Add a salad and bread for a down home meal your friends and family will adore. As with any tomato dish, this tastes even better the next day. This is from an old Polly-O Cheese cookbook.
This is similar to many Baked Pasta dishes but with the distinct flavors of pizza. I created this recipe yesterday and took it to a dinner party as the main dish. It was a big hit and every woman there asked for the recipe. I decided that anything that popular should be posted here. You do not have to use the same kind of pasta I did...but should use a pasta which will remain slightly firm after boiling and baking so that it is not mushy. NOTE** I've had several people ask about when to add the spices...you can either add them to the sauce or to the sausage when you cook it. Either way works great! Since this recipe is an original creation of mine, it tickles me so very much that lots of people are enjoying it! Thanks everyone!
My kids will give up a steak dinner for this spaghetti. It is a recipe I have been perfecting for years and it is so good (if I may humbly say) that my kids are disappointed when they eat spaghetti anywhere else but home! In fact they tell me I should open a restaurant and serve only this spaghetti and garlic bread. In response to requests, I have posted the recipe for Recipe #28559 that uses approximately 1/2 of the sauce from this
recipe. Have spaghetti one night and lasagna later! Thanks to all of you who have tried my recipe and have written a review. I read and appreciate every one of them! Chef Note: After I posted this recipe I remembered a funny incident--my dear husband usually has a nice bottle of wine handy so when I make a batch of spaghetti I just help myself to a splash of it. On one occasion, there wasn't a bottle opened, but there was a bottle sitting on the counter so I got out the corkscrew and helped myself. For some reason, the spaghetti that night was the best ever. My husband asked what wine I put in it and I showed him the bottle. He nearly fell off the chair. I had opened a rather expensive bottle he had bought to give his boss. Goes to show you--don't use a wine for cooking you wouldn't drink. You get the best results from a good wine!
This is one of the BEST chicken dinners I have ever had! Some of the measurements are a guesstimate. I usually buy the big tray of chicken breasts from the store. Most of the time I buy 2 of them because they freeze really well, but usually they never make it to the freezer.
