Pasta Strega Nonna

Rating: 4.5 stars 49
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.

Spinach Ziti

A simple, colorful pasta dish. Serve with a tossed salad and freshly grated parmesan cheese for a great meal.

Pierogi II

Rating: 4.5 stars 16
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.

That Zucchini Spaghetti Stanley Tucci Loves (Spaghetti alla Nerano)

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
After listening to Stanley Tucci lose his mind about this pasta and calling it life-changing and one of the best things he's ever eaten, I decided I'd give it a try. The results were amazing and the key to getting the toasted sweet taste of the zucchini was deep-frying it!
