Make-over Spaghetti & Shrimp Salad

Make-over Spaghetti & Shrimp Salad by Salad Foodie

Originally mayo was the dressing for this salad recipe from a friend long ago, but I decided to give it a make-over. Adding a few new veggies and seasonings, and subbing an oil-based dressing, made it lighter and brighter. The recipe makes enough for a crowd or potluck, so cut down by one third or two thirds if needed.

Brett & Bart's favorite spaghetti

Brett & Bart's favorite spaghetti by jeanne templeman

This is an old Italian recipe that I've been cooking for 30 years, and my boys and husband all love it. I got this from my good friend and extraordinary cook Jeannie Puente. The trick for the old Italian flavor is that you cook it for 2 days in a crockpot. I don't leave it on at night for safety. Delicious!

Southwestern Shell Pasta Salad

Southwestern Shell Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

Chop, chop, chop and get your frustrations out making this pasta salad with south-of-the-border appeal. Choose your heat level by amount of peppers, hot sauce and chilies you add. This yields a generous bowl and serves 12-14. Make this ahead of time and chill ~ if you can wait and can keep everyone out too!

Great for picnics; leftovers hold for several days. Mix of garlic, lemon, olive oil, and feta cheese gives this a great flavor. Source: The Country Deli, Mt View, CA. One of the best deli / lunch places I've been to.

Spinach and Sausage Gnocchi

Spinach and Sausage Gnocchi by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious and beautiful dish. We just served it for a normal weeknight meal, but the presentation is such that it would be good for entertaining. It's rich, so good to serve with a green salad with vinaigrette.

However, the earliest records appear in a book written between AD25 to 220 in China. No matter the origin, noodles have been a staple food, relatively cheap, quick to prepare and…

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

A nice choice for a summer cookout or picnic, this pasta salad can be made up to a day ahead for convenience. My pasta choice for this is ditalini, a small pasta often used in soups (this can be hard to locate but Barilla sells a one pound box.) Or substitute your own small pasta FAV such as elbows or shells.

Gnocchi

Gnocchi by J. Gino Genovesi

If you have never had gnocchi, you are in for a great dish. I refer to my dish as Gnocchi even though the dough contains no potatoes.. Many areas refer to this dish as Cavetelli. What ever they are called, they are a superior meal. When ever my children come home or during Easter and Christmas, this is what they ask for.…
