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!

Sicilian Eggplant & Ricotta Pasta by John Spottiswood

This is yet another wonderful Italian recipe that I've adapted from Marcella Hazan's classic "Essentials of Italian Cooking". This one is good enough that my wife put a little smily face in the upper corner of the recipe and wrote "It's a keeper!". I think you'll feel the same way. We served this for friends with a wonderful citrus…

Baked Ham Rigatoni

Baked Ham Rigatoni by Mommy's Kitchen

If you have a love for pasta and cheese then Baked Ham Rigatoni is the recipe for you. One of my weaknesses is "Pasta" oh how I could eat it everyday, add some cheese and that just makes it that much better. I saw this recipe for Baked Ham Rigatoni at Recipes of a Cheapskate. At first glimpse I knew I had to make it all that cheesy…

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.

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.

Baked Mostaccioli And Beef

Baked Mostaccioli And Beef by Robyn Savoie

Here's a classic dish taking on a new twist. By using a small amount to Italian seasoned tomato sauce and adding just a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. Then combining it with a French Bechamel and loads of cheese. You come out with a pan of messy, gooey, ridiculously decadent pasta. In every good sense of the word.

Simple Pasta with Spinach, Mushrooms and Tomatoes

Simple Pasta with Spinach, Mushrooms and Tomatoes by John Spottiswood

This is one of those simple recipes that are almost embarrassing to put on this website. But this was really tasty and healthy, and our kids devoured it. I have everything being prepared in parallel, so the whole dish takes less than 25 minutes start to finish. If you're tight on time, this is a winner!
