Post  justmecookin on Thu Sep 11, 2008 5:32 pm

Fettuccine Alfredo with Peas and Prosciutto

3 1/2 cups fat-skimmed chicken broth
2 cups milk
3/4 pound dried fettuccine
1 1/2 cups (10-oz. package) frozen petite peas
1 ounce thin-sliced prosciutto
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg or ground nutmeg
Salt and pepper

In a 5- to 6-quart pan, combine broth, milk, and fettuccine (break fettuccine if necessary to fit into pan); cover and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook, uncovered, stirring often to separate noodles, for 5 minutes. Add peas and stir occasionally until pasta is tender to bite, 2 to 4 minutes longer.

Meanwhile, separate prosciutto slices and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-wide strips. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water until smooth.

Add to pasta mixture and stir until it boils and thickens. Add sour cream, parmesan cheese, nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste; stir until well blended and heated through, about 1 minute. Stir in prosciutto. Spoon onto plates. Make 4 servings

Post  justmecookin on Thu Sep 11, 2008 5:52 pm

1 (6-ounce) package fresh baby spinach

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Sauce:
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (7-ounce) bottle roasted red bell peppers, undrained
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

To prepare lasagna, cook noodles according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain and rinse under cold water. Drain.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, mushrooms, spinach, and 3 garlic cloves; sautÚ 5 minutes or until onion and mushrooms are tender. Remove from heat, and stir in cheeses, 2 tablespoons basil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper.

To prepare sauce, place vinegar and remaining ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.

Place cooked noodles on flat surface; spread 1/4 cup cheese mixture over each noodle. Roll up noodles, jelly-roll fashion, starting with short side. Place the rolls, seam sides down, in a shallow 2-quart microwave-safe dish.

Pour 1/4 cup sauce over each roll, and cover with heavy-duty plastic wrap. Microwave at high 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons basil. Makes 4 servings

Lasagna with Sausage Rag¨

Post  justmecookin on Thu Sep 11, 2008 8:44 pm

Lasagna with Sausage Rag¨

About 7 tbsp. butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion, cut into 1/4-in. dice
1/2 cup carrots, cut into 1/4-in. dice
1/2 cup celery, cut into 1/4-in. dice
1 pound bulk sweet Italian sausage (or 1 lb. sausage links removed from their casings)
About 1 1/2 tsp. salt
4 cups whole milk
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 can (28 oz.) whole tomatoes, including juices, finely chopped or crushed with your hands
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
12 ounces lasagna noodles (see Notes)
1 cup good-quality grated parmesan

In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt 2 tbsp. butter in oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Add carrots and celery and cook 5 more minutes. Add sausage and 1/2 tsp. salt, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, and cook until meat loses its raw color.

Add 1 cup milk and cook over medium heat, stirring, until completely absorbed, 10 to 12 minutes. (The milk will appear quite curdled at this point; don't be alarmed.) Add wine and cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, bring to a boil, lower heat, and gently simmer, uncovered, 2 hours. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

After the rag¨ has cooked for 1 1/2 hours, make the bÚchamel by melting remaining 5 tbsp. butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, until it turns light golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Slowly drizzle in remaining 3 cups milk, whisking constantly. Bring to a simmer and continue to cook, whisking, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with remaining 1 tsp. salt, nutmeg, and pepper to taste.

Preheat oven to 375░. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions, being careful not to overcook. Drain and lay flat on dish towels, making sure the noodles do not overlap.

Butter the bottom of a 9- by 13-in. baking dish and coat with about 1/2 cup of rag¨. Add a single layer of noodles (for most brands this is 4 sheets per layer). Spread on 1/3 of the bÚchamel; top bÚchamel with 1/4 of the remaining rag¨, then 1/4 of the parmesan. Repeat layering two more times, covering final layer with remaining rag¨ and parmesan.

Cover lasagna with buttered aluminum foil and bake 20 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes, or until the top browns slightly. Let sit 15 minutes before serving. Makes 6 to 8 servings

Gnocchi with Sausage and Spinach

Post  justmecookin on Thu Sep 11, 2008 8:57 pm

Gnocchi with Sausage and Spinach

2 9-ounce packages refrigerated gnocchi or one 17.5-ounce package shelf-stable gnocchi
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
1 pound Italian sausage, casings removed
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 5-ounce bag baby spinach
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated Parmesan, plus more for garnishing

Cook the gnocchi according to the package directions, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add the sausage and cook, crumbling it with a spoon, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic, spinach, salt, and pepper and cook, tossing frequently, until the spinach wilts, about 3 minutes. Add the drained gnocchi, the reserved cooking liquid, and the Parmesan and toss. Divide among individual bowls and sprinkle with additional Parmesan.

Tip: Gnocchi are small, quick-cooking dumplings, usually made from potatoes. You'll find them with the fresh or dried pasta in supermarkets, or you can substitute a short pasta, such as rigatoni, penne, or farfalle. Makes 4 servings
