Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce
A light and creamy sauce with puree of roasted red peppers as the base. It is excellent on any type of pasta, but tortellini or ravioli seems to be the best match. The prep time is rather long, but the result is definitely worth it. Freezes well. In fact, the taste may improve slightly.
This creamy Alfredo sauce turns a busy weeknight dinner into something special. Serve it with fettuccine or pour it over chicken breasts or steamed vegetables.
Pesto with Arugula
This pesto is unique due to the arugula, which gives it a peppery bite. I also like the lack of cheese, but add it if you must. Use as a spread or on pasta. My favorite is on baguette slices or on whole wheat crackers. It's addictive!

Grandma Maggio's Spaghetti Sauce
This Italian tomato sauce from Grandma is one that was recited to me, from memory alone, and used descriptions like "a hand of garlic," though the quantities listed now should be accurate. I encourage buying the cheapest versions of these ingredients you can find; it will feed an army for about $15 without ruining the taste. You should add more seasonings based on preference. A great vegetarian sauce, or with meatballs, makes great meatball sandwiches.
A good friend gave me this recipe and I've since found it to be so tasty and best of all, easy! My family loves it and it doesn't take long to make at all! It's perfect over angel hair pasta with garlic bread on the side! Double the recipe for larger parties or just for leftovers!
