6 ounces crabmeat, picked over
6 ounces dry radiatore, spirelli or pasta, cooked

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Bake the cod fillets, uncovered, for 5 to 6 minutes, only until the cod flakes easily.

2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1/2 cup straight sherry, not dry
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
2 quarts boiling salted water

In a heavy non-aluminum 3-quart pot, melt the butter, add the flour and cook on moderate heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Do not allow the flour to brown. Add the milk and salt and bring to just below the boiling point, whisking constantly. Remove from the heat and keep warm.

Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat until fragrant, then sauté the garlic only until white throughout. Add the sautéed garlic to the warm béchamel sauce. Add the sherry to the pan in which the garlic was sautéed, simmer strongly for 1 minute, then add it to the warmed sauce.

Add the cooked pasta to the sauce. Place the béchamel/garlic/pasta/ sherry mix back onto low heat for a few minutes, then add the cooked cod, clams, langostinos or shrimp, crabmeat and chopped parsley to the warm béchamel sauce and blend all ingredients thoroughly.
Serve immediately.

Olive Garden San Marco

Vegetables
1 cup green bell pepper, julienne
1 cup red bell pepper, julienne
1 3/4 cups broccoli florets, cut small
1 cup zucchini, sliced 1/4-inch, then halved
1 cup yellow squash, sliced 1/4-inch, then halved
3 tablespoons olive oil

Pasta
6 cups fresh fettuccine, cooked and drained
1 tablespoon olive oil

San Marco Sauce
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds chicken thigh meat, skinned and boned, cubed 1-inch
2 large yellow onions, diced
1 cup carrots, peeled and julienned
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped fine
1 cup chicken broth
28 ounces Italian plum tomatoes, canned with juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons Wondra flour

Sauce: Preheat a heavy non-aluminum Dutch oven or similar 6-quart pot over moderately high heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is fragrant, add the chicken meat pieces and sauté, turning frequently for 5 or minutes until lightly browned on all sides.

Add the onions and carrots and sauté, stirring constantly, until the onions are translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté about 30 seconds. Do not allow the garlic to brown. Immediately add the broth to the pot. Stir bits and pieces loose from the bottom of the pot. Add all additional ingredients, lower the heat to a gently simmer and cover the pot. Simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the chicken meat pieces are tender, but not soft, about 5 to 10 minutes.

As the sauce is finishing cooking, add 3 tablespoons oil to a heavy skillet and sauté the bell peppers, squashes and broccoli over medium heat until just crisp-tender. Add the veggies to the sauce when the chicken meat is tender, blend all together and turn off the heat. Adjust the salt, pepper and herb levels to taste. Toss the cooked pasta with 1 tablespoon oil to prevent sticking and add to the sauce; blend chicken, veggies and sauce thoroughly and serve along with Parmesan cheese.

Olive Garden Pasta Frittata

12 ounces spaghetti, broken into 2-inch pieces and cooked al dente
3 ounces green onions, sliced
3 ounces thick-sliced bacon, cooked, chopped
Vegetable spray or margarine
3 tablespoon shredded Fontina (heaping)
Freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
3 3/4 cups Frittata Batter (see below)

Frittata Batter
6 medium eggs
2 1/2 cups half-and-half
5 teaspoons cornstarch
1 dash nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For Frittata Batter; beat eggs, half-and-half, cornstarch, salt and nutmeg thoroughly until all ingredients are completely blended.

Blend the 2-inch spaghetti pieces, green onion rings and bacon pieces in a bowl until evenly mixed. Coat a 1 1/2-quart round baking dish, including walls, with spray or margarine. Empty the spaghetti mixture into the baking dish and spread evenly. Add the Frittata Batter to cover the filling mix. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes until center is set.

When center is set, cover the frittata evenly with the Fontina and bake until cheese is golden. Turn off the heat and open oven door. Let the frittata set in the open oven for 15 minutes for the batter to set more firmly and make removing from the dish easy. Before serving, sprinkle with Parmesan and cut into 4 wedges. Makes 4 servings.
