Poor Mamma's Spaghetti
What did Mamma do when her grocery money didn't stretch for real Parmesan cheese? She improvised, naturally. Being a good cook, her meal eventually became famous, even dukes loved Mamma's spaghetti. And so will you. But pssst, don't give away Mamma's little secret...
Macaroni and Cheese with Caramelized Onions and Bacon
Very intense, rich dish due to the sharpness of the cheeses melded with spicy, creamy, and tangy flavors.
Broccoli n Tomato Pasta
Fresh tomatoes and broccoli add pretty color to this hearty spaghetti dish from Lillian Justis of Woodbine, New Jersey.

College Student's Gourmet Pasta
This recipe was a frequent favorite when I was in college, because it is made with ingredients most students have in their kitchens. I have made this with low fat ingredients, and it works very well. Since I have gotten older, I have added chicken and shrimp to the recipe; it is very adaptable. Easy, tastes wonderful, but not very easy on the waistline.
An easier version of an Italian favorite, using instant mashed potatoes. This recipe can easily be double, tripled, etc. I make multiple batches, and freeze. To freeze, put on cookie sheets until frozen, and then put into plastic bags. Serve with your favorite spaghetti sauce.
Chicken breast chunks flavored with bacon, artichoke hearts and herbs in a tomato sauce all over a steaming bowl of linguine.
This wonderful and easy skillet pasta dish includes sun-dried tomatoes, olives, pine nuts, feta cheese, and crushed red pepper flakes. This is an authentic alternative that gets rave reviews in our family.
Asparagus Penne Carbonara

Watermelon and Feta Salad
I made up this salad one day when I bought a watermelon on special and didn't know what to do with it. It sounds unusual but it really works... It's great as a fresh starter or as an accompaniment to grilled fish or even a hot spicy curry to act as a cooler.
