Pasta Strega Nonna
A very quick and easy pasta dish inspired by my Italian grandmother. Sort of an Italian stir-fry. Serve this over short pastas such as shells, orrechietti, or farfalle.
A simple, colorful pasta dish. Serve with a tossed salad and freshly grated parmesan cheese for a great meal.
These are dough pockets filled with cottage cheese, boiled and served with sour cream gravy. My step-grandmother was Russian/Polish and she made these but we called them Vereneke. If desired, serve with sour cream that is heated but not boiling, and crisp fried bacon.
Easiest Mac-N-Cheese Ever!
I have tried many more-complicated recipes for macaroni and cheese. Not only is this one often requested for family functions, but it is easy to make! Kids LOVE this recipe. It is so handy for busy moms.
Fettuccine with Garlic Herb Butter
This is wonderful! Try as much or as little of the fresh herbs to suit your tastes. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and some warm bread, if desired.
Bow-Tie Pasta With Red Pepper Sauce
You can make this dish anytime of the year, but it is especially good in the Spring with garden fresh peas and parsley. Simple, yet very tasty!
Naunie's Pastera (Leftover Easter Pasta Bake)
Ever wonder what to do with the small amounts of leftover dry pasta that are in your cupboard? Once a year, at Easter, use them in this Italian baked pasta dish!
Homemade Mac and Cheese
This is a nice rich mac and cheese. Serve with a salad for a great meatless dinner. Hope you enjoy it.
Simple Macaroni and Cheese
A very quick and easy fix to a tasty side-dish. Fancy, designer mac and cheese often costs forty or fifty dollars to prepare when you have so many exotic and expensive cheeses, but they aren't always the best tasting. This recipe is cheap and tasty.
Cheap Chicken Noodle Casserole
A mixture of chicken, soup, milk, peas and carrots baked with egg noodles, cheese and bread. My husband hates tuna, so I improvised my mom's tuna casserole recipe. Both he and my brother-in-law love it!
