    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    Maybe lasagna? You can type in "recipe for ...." pretty much anything in the google and find tons of recipes.
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    dimitri, this isn't low calorie, but my family loves it:

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
    • 1 tablespoon dried basil leaves
    • 3/4 teaspoon white sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1 tablespoon butter



    Directions

    1. In a saucepan, saute onion in olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for one more minute. Make sure it doesn't burn. Add tomatoes, basil, sugar, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring to boil and continue to boil 5 minutes or until most of the liquid evaporates. Remove from heat; stir in whipping cream and butter. Reduce heat and simmer 5 more minutes. Use as a sauce for any pasta. Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese and serve.

    If you're not an experienced pasta maker, you can use wonton wrappers or egg roll skins from the produce department of your grocery store. With fillings and easy folding, you can make free-form lasagne, ravioli or canneloni. Google "wonton wrappers" and you're sure to find complete directions.

    Paul Newann's bottled sauces are very good. Don't be concerned about using his marinara....it s that good ! I make a lot of Italian meals. No reason to make your own red sauce when there are some great ones on the market....but Prego is NOT one if them IMhO. ALDI has a great selection of red sauces.

    Buy a block of Parmesan and grate it yourself. Much better tasting than the canned Parmesan. Italian dishes are easy to put together so don't sweat it. If your make lasagna, use Italian sausage. Yummy!

    Www.allrecipes.com has any recipes that are user friendly.

    Garlic bread??

    I make my "signature" salad to go with my italian meals.

    Fresh spinach, tomato, red onion, feta cheese. Fr my dressing I make te Good Seasons Italian mx substituting the regular vinegar with Red Wine vinegar. Olive oil instead of regular oil. Note to my St. Louis friends....instead of feta cheese, I always use provel rope cheese! A St. Louis exclusive!

    Don't forget the red wine! merlot or Cabernet go great with pasta dishes.

    Have fun!

    This recipe is easy and I had an Italian friend who loved it.
    Italian Sausage Tomato Sauce
    Slowly brown 1 lb. sweet italian sausage. Remove from pan and remove skin. Cut in bite sized pieces. Discard fat from pan. Add 1/4 cup olive oil to pan and saute 1 chopped onion & 1 minced clove of garlic. In another pan combine 1 can (2 cups)tomatoes, 1 can (2/3 cup) tomato paste, 1- 8 oz, can tomato sauce, salt and pepper, 1 bay leaf and dash of sugar, alllspice, and oregano. Add about 2/3 cup water. Add a little at a time so sauce doesn't get too thin. Add sausage and onion to sauce and cook 1-2 hours, covered. I make a salad and use bottled creamy italian dressing. Slice a loaf of Italian bread. Butter each slice and gently add oregano and garlic powder. Place in broiler until brown.

    This recipe is a little different and can be made ahead.
    Baked Spaghetti
    1 pk. (16 oz.) spaghetti
    1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
    1 jar (48) oz. spaghetti sauce
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1 cup milk
    2 cups mozzarella cheese
    Cook spaghetti. Brown beef and pour off fat. Stir in spaghetti sauce. Combine soup and milk.
    In 9 x 13 inch pan, layer meat mixture, spaghetti, soup mix, and then cheese. Repeat layers. Cover and bake at 350 for 55-65 minutes. Or, you can use 2- 8 inch square pans and bake one and freeze one. Can be kept frozen up to 3 months. To use frozen casserole, thaw in fridge overnight. Sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking. Cook at 350 for 55-65 minutes.

    We eat tons of pastaaround here. A nice company dish is to bread some boneless chicken breasts (I cut them or pound them thin to cook quicker) fry them. Put in a baking pan. Small amount of your fav tomsto sauce on top of each followed by a slice of provolone or mozzarella. Bake until melted snd serve with your fav pasta and the rest of the sauce.

    I bread my chicken also but I cook it in the oven for 40 minutes. Then I put pasta sauce in a pan, add the cooked chicken and add mozzarella and parmesan and cook for 20 minutes more. I stick them under the broiler for just a minute at the end to brown the cheese a little.
