Pasta with Garlic Breadcrumbs (Pasta con pangrattato)

Pasta with Garlic Breadcrumbs (Pasta con pangrattato) by kathy vegas

This thrifty pasta dish is from an era when clever home cooks had to feed large families and meat and cheese was too expensive and often hard to come by. Bread was always on hand and stale bread was never wasted. Stale bread shows up in many classic Italian soups, pastas and even deserts. Crisp, savory breadcrumbs are the star in this…

Five Star Lasagna

Five Star Lasagna by Chef Doug

This took much exhaustive research to find. My goal was to find the recipe for the Old Spaghetti Factory lasagna. This may or may not be the exact recipe, but it is very close. The Old Spaghetti Factory lasagna is the best lasagna I've personally ever tasted. It elicits an almost inaudible moan with every bite. This takes a 9x13…

Struffoli (honey balls)

Struffoli (honey balls) by Joseph Gargiulo

A Christmas favorite in Italian households. When I was growing up in my home there was always a bowl of these available to munch on with milk or, as I got older, with coffee. They are honey glazed pastry balls which are great for a festive snacking treat.

A Taste of Utica Chocolate Filled Cookies

A Taste of Utica Chocolate Filled Cookies by Joanne

Not too difficult and certainly worth every effort. This delightful cookie comes in a log and you simply slice as desired. It's a good thing the recipe makes 3 large cookie logs because you'll want a lot of extra.

Tuscan shrimp marinara with chickpea pasta

Tuscan shrimp marinara with chickpea pasta by John Spottiswood

This is a great Tuscan recipe adapted from the Flavors of Tuscan cookbook by Maxine Clark. Maxine recommends making fresh chickpea pasta. We use Barilla Plus pasta, which is made with chickpeas just like Maxine recommends. By skipping making your own pasta, this becomes a very easy and healthy dish.

You’ll love, love, love this rich and hearty soup! It tastes very similar to the pasta e fagioli at Olive Garden. It’s one of the lowest-fat items on the Olive Garden menu, with 2.5 of fat per serving. Our recipe actually contains more calories than theirs does because we’ve added more beans and veggies. The skinny on 1 cup of…
