Lasagna Italiana

Lasagna Italiana by ExhilaratingChef

Inspired from the streets of Tuscany, I developed this recipe by reducing the amount of sodium, eliminating sugar, and reducing the total fat content of a traditional lasagna. Enjoy!

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!

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.

Chicken, Tomatoes & Rotini Salad by Salad Foodie

Hearty pasta salad to help use up leftover roast chicken or turkey. I've a bumper crop of grape tomatoes which work well in this too. I try to go light on the seasonings, so follks can adjust as desired when served.

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.…

Grandmother’s Handkerchief & Sausage Soup (Fazzoletto di nonna e la zuppa di salsiccia) by Windle Grissett

A friend of mines mom was making pasta sheets, which I thought was to be for ravioli or manicotti crepes. Turns out she was making something I never heard of "grandmother's handkerchief". I decided to combine this with a soup recipe. Enjoy!!

Autentica " Pasta alla contadina "

Autentica " Pasta alla contadina " by CHEFMAURIZIO

Recipe of Calabria. We are in southern Italy. A recipe that my mother gave me and that I have taken over the tradition. Calabria is known for its natural beauty, but also for the use of chili peppers, very spicy in the area. This recipe is therefore a little spicy. Warning to those who do not like. The recipe is simple.

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.
