Penne Alfredo with Italian Sausage and Zucchini

Penne Alfredo with Italian Sausage and Zucchini by Denise Sherin

I had this dish at a local diner and loved it. So I recreated it at home it's an easy tasty dish. It looks like you spent a lot of time making it and it comes together so easily. In this picture I used just zucchini but I have made it with summer squash or a mix of both, whatever I have on hand, and it's great.

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.

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.

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.

Fake Out Crab Rangoon Bites

Fake Out Crab Rangoon Bites by Smokinhotchef

This recipe is a spin off of one of my favorite items found in a Chinese Restaurant. I've always loved this crispity outer layer coupled with the gooey center. Cheese tortellini provide the basic shape and mousse like center. A combination of condiments and ingredients popular in Asian cooking are used create the idea of crab…

EZ Lasagna My Way

EZ Lasagna My Way by Glenn

I have a love-hate relationship with lasagna. I hate the difficulty of making it and I usually don't like the taste of fresh lasagna right out of the oven. I love re-heated lasagna (even if you re-heat in in a microwave parching machine). Something tastes better the second time around. So here it is my EZ (Easy is just too…
