Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata
One thing I learned in my years living in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, NY was how to cook a good Italian meal. Here is a recipe I created after having this dish in a restaurant. Enjoy!
Pepperoni and mozzarella cheese make this a filling pasta salad. Serve with fruit for a nice summertime meal.
Orzo with Parmesan and Basil
This is a simple recipe that everyone loves. For a quick Mediterranean macaroni and cheese, omit the basil. Easily doubled, too!

Penne with Chicken and Pesto
I sometimes substitute chicken broth for half the heavy cream called for in the recipe to reduce calories. I also use additional Parmesan.
This is wonderful as a meal or alongside sandwiches or grilled meats. Try it and add your favorite vegetable. Serve warm or cold.
Linguine and Clam Sauce
This is a very easy and tasty recipe. My family loves it. Try serving it with a green salad and garlic bread if desired.
Cheesy Stuffed Shells
This is a delicious baked pasta dish with large shells filled with meat, spinach and cheese that children always seem to love. It is kind of a 'spaghetti that behaves itself!'
Restaurant Style Mac and Cheese
Excellent restaurant-style macaroni with cheese that knocked me away!
I have used this basic principle and adapted it to make stuffed shells and lasagna. If making lasagna, I buy a second, smaller jar of spaghetti sauce. I always feel like I need a bit more. Merry Manicotti!
Zucchini with Farfalle
Cream sauce with sauteed vegetables over bow tie noodles. Serves 4 as a main course, 6 to 8 for a first course.
