Pasta Recipes

PASTA
Bacon ‘n Eggs ‘n Spinach ‘n Pasta: July 9, 2015
I used spinach and cheese ravioli, but cheese tortellini would work really, really well.

Baked Spaghetti: January 18, 2011
The only time I’ve had whole wheat pasta that I actually enjoyed it.

Best! Doctored Pasta Sauce: August 27, 2012

Broccoli & Garlic Pasta (The Doris Project): January 15, 2014

Chili, Cincinnati-Style, Five Ways: March 25, 2014
I used a mixture of ground beef and ground pork, veggie stock, and added black beans. It was good.

Corn Casserole, The Doris Project, Week 40: October 15, 2014
A combination of corns and macaroni and cheese and man! is it tasty! Mebbe too rich for everyday, but just think about adding this to your holiday feast.

Couscous, Salad: June 5, 2013
Made with larger Israeli (Pearl) couscous. Very nice.

Couscous Salad, Best!: December 14, 2016

Crêpes, Stuffed Manicotti-Style: June 11, 2013
Where to put this recipe? I made this version vegetarian, though the original called for a meat sauce; and in place of pasta tubes, we’re using crêpes, those lovely, thin French pancakes. *sigh* Just resign yourself to finding this, praticular recipe in just about every section of this here table o’ frikkin’ contents. We strive for nothing if not overkill.
Parfait! Crêpes, Stuffed Manicotti-Style: August 15, 2014
I added sun dried tomatoes to the crêpes, beef to the pasta sauce, and used whipped cottage cheese as the base for the filling. Nice!

Deviled Macaroni Bake: September 29, 2010
This little bit o’ vintage was meant to be a vegetarian Lenten recipe, but I
used green chile sauce I had in the fridge when I made it. I do believe
though, that it is hearty enough to stand on it’s own without meat, so try it, I
think you’ll like it.

Garlic Pasta Sauce: January 7, 2013
Sautéed garlic, olive oil, and fresh chopped parsley come together to make One. Fine. Pasta Sauce. Add your pasta of choice, a bit of good Parmesan, and a dusting of your best black pepper (Tellicherry, in this house), and you have yourself a pretty darned tasty dinner. I had some shrimp laying about that were quite nice in the sauce, too.

Parfait! Johnny Mazetti Spaghetti: September 7, 2012
Wherein I cut out a LOT of cheese, and the results are not too, too bad! Of course, it’s even better when I sprinkle the leftovers with just a little bit of cheddar and asiago and pop ‘em in the ‘wave – but I still ended up with a pretty major net savings on cheese content.
Parfait! Johnny Mazetti Spaghetti Casserole: October 9, 2015
Updated with my new favorite 3 Pigs Pasta Sauce and a most excellent ten year old Cheddar.

Parfait! Macaroni Salad: June 10, 2011
Parfait! 2 Day Pasta Salad: June 29, 2012

Pierogi Casserole: November 7, 2011
Potatoes AND pasta AND cheese AND bacon. Oh, my.

Pimiento Tuna Penne: January 14, 2011
You don’t HAVE to include the tuna in this, in which case you get a pretty
darned terrific riff on mac an’ cheese for a side dish, or maybe a vegetarian
main course.
