1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes in thick puree
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus additional for ramekins
1 cup fresh whole-wheat bread crumbs (about 2 slices bread, pulsed in blender)
3-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups hot skim milk
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 cups grated 2 percent sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups grated Gruyere cheese
1 pound cellentani or corkscrew pasta

Cook beef in a nonstick skillet over moderately high heat, breaking up meat with a spoon, until no longer pink. Transfer beef with a slotted spoon to a bowl, leaving fat in skillet. Add onion to skillet and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in beef, tomatoes with puree, and Worcestershire sauce; simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.

Melt butter in a large saucepan over moderate heat. Remove pan from heat and transfer 1 tablespoon of the butter to a medium bowl, leaving remaining butter in pan. Add bread crumbs to bowl with butter and stir to combine. Whisk flour into saucepan and cook over moderate heat, whisking, until mixture is pale brown, about 3 minutes.

Whisk in milk in a slow, steady stream and simmer, whisking occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 6 minutes. Remove pan from heat and whisk until melted and mixture is almost smooth. Salt and pepper to taste. Keep sauce warm, covered, off heat.

Preheat oven to 400 degree and lightly butter 6 ovenproof ramekins (about 2-cup capacity) or glass dishes. Cook pasta in a 6-quart pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente; drain in colander. Return pasta to pot and pour in cheese sauce. Gently stir pasta and sauce together until combined well.

Spoon about 1/2 cup meat mixture in bottom of each prepared ramekin and top evenly with macaroni and cheese. Sprinkle with bread crumb mixture and bake casseroles on a sheet pan in middle of oven until bubbling and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Makes 6 servings.

Spinach and Ham Pie

Post  justmecookin on Mon Apr 06, 2009 9:14 pm

Spinach and Ham Pie

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
3 ten-ounce bags spinach, stemmed and well washed, but not dried
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 large eggs
1 pound fresh ricotta cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
8 ounces boiled ham, cut into 1/4-inch cubes (optional)

Make the pastry: In the bowl of a food processor, combine the butter and cream cheese. Process until combined. Add cream, and pulse to combine. Add the flour and salt, and pulse just until a ball forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead a few times. Divide dough in half, pat each half into a disc, and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make the filling: Place the spinach in a very large pot over medium-high heat. Cover, and cook, stirring once or twice, until spinach wilts, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from pot, and set aside to cool. Squeeze dry, wringing out the cooked spinach in cheesecloth (there should be 2 cups), and coarsely chop.

Meanwhile, heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add oil and onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent but not brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat to cool briefly.

In a large bowl, lightly beat 2 eggs. Add ricotta, Parmesan, salt, and pepper; mix to combine. Stir in the spinach and onions. Add ham; stir to combine.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out one disc of dough to a 13-inch circle. Transfer the dough to a 9-inch glass pie plate, allowing the excess dough to hang over the edge of the plate. Trim edges to 1/2 inch. Spread spinach mixture evenly into pie plate. On a lightly floured surface, roll out second disc of dough to a 13-inch circle.

Transfer to top of the pie. Trim top crust to overlap the bottom by 1/4 inch. Fold top crust over bottom, and crimp edges together with your fingers. Cut a few small vents. Beat the remaining egg with a few drops of water, and brush over surface of pie. Bake until crust is golden brown, about 1 hour. Cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serves 8
