Easy Pleasy Mac N Cheesy - US Navy Style

Rating: 4.5 stars 308
I deployed with the U.S. Navy on the USS Enterprise, and it was there I had the best mac and cheese of my life. I've spent a number of years trying new recipes to produce the mild, thick and creamy version we were served. After numerous attempts and fails I came up with this. It's so simple and just like we got weekly while we were haze grey and underway.

Chicken and Sausage with Bowties

Rating: 4.5 stars 374
Necessity is the mother of invention. This recipe was created by me because I had a 1 1/2 hour commute to/from work. I have two teenage boys who require a hearty meal to sustain them for at least 1 hour (maybe less). This recipe can be varied; use pork italian sausage if you like (cook longer), veal or pork cutlets or cubes (be careful to cook pork products thoroughly). Serve as a sandwich, skip the pasta, mix with leftover cooked rice; add small green peas or broccoli. I doubt if anything you try will go wrong. Mangia!

Orcchiette Pasta with Broccoli Rabe and Sausage

Rating: 4.5 stars 25
One day my boyfriend and I went out to eat in Little Italy and he order a dish that he said was exactly like what I make at home for him! Why spend $25 when you can do it at home? It's a really warm and filling dish that you won't be able to get enough of! You can add tomatoes to it if you wish and adjust the garlic, hotness and oil to your liking. Enjoy! I serve this with Romano cheese and crushed red pepper.
