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!

BLT Macaroni Salad

BLT Macaroni Salad by Robyn Savoie

This is a summer staple in my house because it's nice to serve on hot and humid days. Make sure to cook the pasta al dente because it will absorb half the dressing as it rests in the refrigerator.

Linguine with Fresh Tomatoes

Linguine with Fresh Tomatoes by Robyn Savoie

Since we can have great tomatoes year around, we can always enjoy their fresh flavor this way. Remember: Never store your fresh tomatoes in the refrigerator, the cold ruins their taste and texture. Keep them right on the counter so they'll be sweeter and juicier.

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

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!!

Chicken, Tomatoes & Rotini Salad

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.…

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…

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.

Vegetable Bowtie Pasta Salad

Vegetable Bowtie Pasta Salad by Vanessa

Growing up, my Mother fixed a pasta salad that was so awesome. Well, I did a makeover of that pasta salad with my own twist...by changing the pasta to bowtie pasta, using low-fat mayo and low-fat sour cream and adding more vegetables.

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.

Southwestern Mac & Cheese

Southwestern Mac & Cheese by Patti Fisher

Southwestern Mac & Cheese, we have to laugh, of all the recipes we get asked for from gourmet to down home, what we get the most requests for is macaroni and cheese. Our date night was coming up so I asked Ken what he was in the mood for thinking he would say steak or ribs. Nope, he wanted a creamy mac & cheese with a little flavor…
