Exchange Gang Pasta with Shrimp

Rating: 4.5 stars 191
I have made several friends on the Recipe Exchange here. One of them posted a request asking other members to each suggest one ingredient and challenged me to make a dish out of only those ingredients, plus salt and pepper. After 15 minutes, she gave me the list. People had so much fun participating and I had a blast creating the dish. It turned out so good that my kids licked their plates! Everyone who participated deserves credit for creating the dish, so I have given their display names next to their ingredient. The recipe you see here is the result of that incredibly fun challenge.

Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes

Rating: 5 stars 1249
A one-pan recipe for crispy, tender, and oh-so-tasty chicken and potatoes.

Chef John's Stuffed Peppers

Rating: 5 stars 2471
This recipe is easy yet satisfying — with a mix of rice, beef, and sausage.

Thai-Dipped Beef Tri Tip

Rating: 5 stars 28
I enjoy beef satay way more than I do skewering small pieces of beef. Besides, I've never made satay, and not stuck a bamboo skewer into my finger at some point in the process. Not only did this involve less labor, but you can cook this in any number of ways.

Grilled Marinated Swordfish

Rating: 4.5 stars 306
Grilled swordfish steaks marinated in white wine, lemon, and soy sauce.

Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs

Rating: 4.5 stars 1022
These baked chicken thighs are nice and spicy but honey tames the heat.

American Gyros

Rating: 5 stars 88
Authentic Greek gyros are made with pork and chicken, but I prefer this version. It uses the same spices but is made with ground lamb and/or beef. Plus it's perfect for making ahead of time and heating it when you make your gyros. Don't forget to make tzatziki!

Hungarian Goulash

Rating: 4.5 stars 448
Comforting, tender beef stew with onion, garlic, tomato paste, and paprika.

Chicken Parmesan Panini

Rating: 5 stars 4
Crispy pan-fried chicken cutlets are sandwiched between thick slices of crusty bread with mozzarella cheese and traditional tomato sauce, then toasted in a panini press.

Flank Steak Pinwheels

Rating: 4.5 stars 265
A spinach, onion, and feta filling is swirled into marinated flank steak.

Irish Shepherd's Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 539
Seasoned ground lamb and veggies baked under Irish Cheddar-mashed potatoes.

Chef John's Roasted Leg of Lamb

Rating: 5 stars 101
I've done more than a few lamb dishes dedicated to Easter but inexplicably have never posted one for a whole leg of lamb. It's a classic Easter menu option, and when prepared using this method, it makes for a very user-friendly hunk of meat.
