this is a fun salad that uses the same ingredients you would in an italian sandwich. water chestnuts give it a nice crunch!!
ok, so this is not *really* italian, but it is still great with burgers! :)
my sister-in-law made these for us at a family get together. they are delicious!! a little messy to make but worth the effort!! have a helper and make an
this was originally my mom's recipe and used to be a favorite when we were kids. i always requested it for my birthday dinner.
watched a documentary about the
after traveling throughout italy, savoring the fine tastes of bolognese from the many different regions, i decided to formulate my own. try it, you'll love it.
this is a new invention at our restaurant; it's already receiving rave reviews. :0) much thx to our chief eric. ps. you can cook the sauce before hand and add the squid ink to the sauce when you are cooking the pasta.
i really did make up this recipe on my own, with the help of an italian lady through emails. the mingling of the oil/spices is the key. we were really into once a month cooking for awhile and this sauce is/was a hit.
ready, set, cook! special edition contest entry. this is a leftover meal. seems like everyone always is looking for ways to use leftover potatoes. this recipe is untraditional and unique. great to get the kids involved to help shape the gnocchi.
tender, garlicky and full of oregano 'n stuff! start this one a day ahead; the beef slices need an overnight stay in da gravy to be at their best. and please don't overcook the roast! as it rests right out of the oven and as it's reheated it'll stop mooin
made for dining on a dollar contest.
this recipe, from karin calloway of the augusta chronicle, eliminates many of the steps in creating traditional lasagna. instead of the cheese mixture and noodles, you use cheese ravioli. you layer the ravioli with meat sauce and mozzarella cheese and b
my son recently showed me a recipe for artisan bread that is incredibly tasty and easy to make. you can find the recipe at http://shoottocook.com/recipes/baking/artisan-bread-in-five-minutes/ . the name is artisan bread in “five minutes” and you really
risotto is the ultimate comfort food, it's like being hugged by your dinner. you can make do with a spoon and don't even need to bother with proper grown-up cutlery. a bowl of this can (almost) make everything better again when your down.
having recently discovered an allergy to tomatoes sent my italian world into a tailspin. how would i ever survive?? here is a wonderful, nourishing, comfort-food soup that i put together that eased my sense of deprivation. the amounts are very flexible, p
my family loves these chops. i found the recipe on a website but i can't remember where. it was origninally a slowcooker recipe but i make it on the stove.
this is my version of one of the best things my mom ever made--johnny marzetti! a little lasagna, a little spaghetti, a little personalization and voila! a yummy meatless dish for supper.
after years of making alfredo sauce, i think i have perfected what i call the "best alfredo sauce in america"! however, i was fresh out of fettuccine, so i had to substitute spaghetti noodles, but even still, the results were amazing!! i hope you'll try
this recipe has been in my family since it was first made in a small town north of palermo, sicily. i am exposing this family recipe because i know it will help some people be able to continue their love for pasta and still be able to stay on their diet.
i found this recipe on a low carb site and modified it slightly to suit our tastes. we had it for dinner last night and it was awesome!! very yummy and the flavor of all those fresh veggies blended beautifully with the sauce! dh went back for seconds, so
this panettone really is
great for a meaty, rich dish or just for a change of pace over your other sauce. very simple to make and impresses easily. inspired by a dish at panzano's in denver from their menu in the winter of 06/07.
everybody i've ever made these for have loved them. i've made them with marshmellows before too... but that didn't really work out too well hehehe. in the picture the lighter biscottis don't have the cocoa powder in them and the darker ones do. (i like th
meatball substitute for vegetarians. i wrote this recipe yesterday and have not made it yet.
a very yummy family favorite. can be made vegetarian or not by changing some ingredients.
i found this recipe in a 2000 in style magazine. we make this a lot at my house in the hot weather. the only cooking you have to do is boiling water. you will need a food proccesor or a blender for this one. delicious and healthy!
a quick recipe with only 20 minutes preparation using fleishchmann's rapid rise yeast!
most italian homes rarely have ovens so that leaves them roasting on the stove top. it's the perfect way to make a rare roast beef. turning the meat is the hardest part!
fresh tasting pasta sauce using canned crushed tomatoes as described on america's test kitchens. use either muir glenn or tuttoroso crushed tomatoes because they use a lower processing temperature in the canning process and therefore are fresher tasting t
this is a basic semolina bread which is ideal for vegetarian/vegan diets. recipe is for a 2 lb loaf in a bread machine.
if you like stuffed shells , you'll love this one, and probably will never buy frozen store bought ones again. it's one of my hit and miss recipes. everybody i've made them for has loved them.
creamy and delicious! the cashews make the sauce so creamy and the meals comes together so quick! another one from pinterest with credit going to half baked.
this is a recipe for the kraft website.
truly delicious seafood/pasta dish that is nearly impossible to mess up & a great stand by for rushed dinners.
know how at some italian restaurants they give you the option of both butter and a dish with herbed olive when they bring out the bread? i found that i actually prefer the olive oil dip to butter in terms of both taste and ease to use; i don't have to wai
pizza burgers lack many things, among them, pepperoni! here is our version which we feel is totally 'pizza'! try it with our recipe #255242 which is packed with pizza flavor and requires no cooking! suggested from a friend: instead of patting burgers with
chicken, broccoli, carrots, and more in a wonderful lasagne with alfredo sauce. add some provolone in between the layers for added 'italian' flavor! if you use reduced-fat alfredo sauce, and low carb pasta, this will fit into a lite-bleu menu. all lite-bl
wow, italian comfort food with fontina, parmigiano and provolone cheese. even my meat & potato loving ds stops dead in his tracks for this! the original recipe from barrilla omitted any directions for the salt and pepper.
going off of applebee's dish, decided to try my own version at home. this is made with a jarred alfredo sauce for quick meals, but of course homemade is always better. feel free to use your favorite alfredo! for really quick meal use the precooked chicken
i like everything in my lasagna, but there's gotta be 3 cheeses and meat to make it proper. it's even better if you add a little cheddar, feta, and gouda, of course the gouda's just getting excessive...
years ago my grandmother ordered me these recipe cards in the mail that you file in a box that the company provides. i didn't much care for the recipes so we ended the subscription. there was one gem in the bunch, though. it remains a family favorite! (i
for a healthier version use low-fat mozzarella and cottage cheese. if you would like to freeze one of the pans for later use, put it in the freezer before cooking it and cook for an hour and 1/2 instead of 1 hour when you are ready to use it. this was mod
very, very easy to make meal that will please almost anyone! what a great way to get the little ones to eat spinach! heh 8)
tortellini ai tre formaggi con peperoni rossi arrosto, zucchini e spinaci. this dish is easy to prepare, is healthy(?) and it looks very pretty! barilla web site. serve with white wine.
this is a family favorite. i modified this recipe from an old roommate in college. she would make a vegetarian version without italian sausage. it was also wonderful. hope you enjoy!
i developed this recipe by combining a super quick lasagna recipe that does not require the lasagna noodles to be pre-cooked and a spinach lasagna recipe which is so delicious it can get anyone, like myself, who dislikes spinach to get their iron.
this is done in about an hour and a half. makes enough to freeze for later when time doesn’t allow to cook. the name comes from the ingredients. i finally found how much tomato sauce it takes to thicken using 1 small can of tomato paste.
great idea here! i found this in the kraft food and family holiday edition. very simple and if some don't like the taste of an ingredient, they don't have to eat it because the 'dip' is sectioned off into 3 sections.
you will not believe how good these pork chops are, after seeing how easy they are to make. these are so simple, yet worthy of serving to company. i get rave reviews every time i serve them and i'm always asked for the recipe, yet almost embarrased to g
