In the ancestry of this recipe are a Nigella Lawson dish and a Leanne Brown dish, combined because I really needed to use up both sets of ingredients.

This is pretty much the recipe from Leanne Brown's Gooxd and Cheap, with a few tweaks according to what I had on hand.

Omnomnom, this is a fabulous dinner party dish. Unlike most fettuccine recipes, it doesn't use any kind of creamy sauce. Somewhat expensive ingredients (i.e. the shrimp), but the savings in prep and execution time really pay off if you're having guests over. My additions to the original instructions from myrecipes.com are marked with brackets.

Spicy Shrimp and Fettuccine

This dish is an appealing, affordable option for entertaining. We used dried basil in this dish to cut costs, but you can substitute 2 tablespoons fresh basil, if desired. Frozen or previously frozen shrimp is often on sale at supermarkets.

Yield: 4 servings

Serves 4.

You will need:
1/2 lb pasta (penne, rigatoni, fusilli/rotini, bowties, etc. Not spaghetti, angel hair, etc.)
16 oz jar pasta sauce (one you like)
15 oz tub ricotta
6-8 oz mozzarella, shredded

8x8 baking dish, sprayed with non-stick spray

Step 1: Cook 1/2 lb pasta as directed on package. Drain.
Step 2: Return pasta to pot.
Step 3: Pour approximately half your pasta sauce into the pot with the pasta. Stir.
Step 4: Spoon approximately half your ricotta into the pot with the pasta and sauce. Stir until thoroughly mixed. (Sauce may appear unpleasant at this stage.)
Step 5: Dump contents of pot evenly into baking dish.
Step 6: Cover with shredded mozzarella.
Step 7: Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.

This can be made vegan by substituting soft or silken tofu for the ricotta and your favorite cheese substitute for the mozzarella.

You can easily double the recipe for larger groups. Use a 9x13 baking dish instead. This is my go-to potluck dish if I'm pressed for time.

Pretty much what the title says! Here, have some proportions...

Generalizations and a greater understanding of the ingredients lies within )

The best part? It's even better as leftovers. Yay!


Edited to add sour cream. It helps bind everything together. You can leave it out if you don't want it, I guess, but you'll want to add some butter or something.

For lunch today, my roommate ate one of those cardboard containers of instant beef ramen. Less than a dollar for the entire crate! I took one look at his meal and decided I didn't want to turn myself into dried meat from the ridiculous salt content. 

So, I made this: http://www.acozykitchen.com/anti-ramen-noodle-soup/

Its got some ingredients I wouldn't have expected, and the version I made was a little bit different, but mmmmm so good.

I made a large batch of this over the weekend, and it's so simple -- and great for work lunches -- that I wanted to share. Vegetarian and only four or five ingredients:

Hi, all - I had the sudden urge last night to make some kind of quick dessert pasta, but all the recipes I found online were either some variation on kugel, or ingredient-intensive enough that I would have had to go to the store (which I was feeling too lazy to do.) I gave up on the idea eventually, but I thought I'd turn to you all here for advice. Any suggestions? I'm really just looking for one or two (or maybe three) ingredients that I could just toss vermicelli or spaghetti or the like in, with no more involvement or complication, really, than that.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

The Turkish grocery on my street is having the most delicious vine-ripened tomatoes this year and I've been working my way happily through all the tomato recipes in my repertoire lately. I've been doing this one for years already and was quite pleased to see almost the same recipe on Kalyn's Kitchen the other day.

I've been craving good, homemade mac 'n cheese.  Does anybody have a recipe that they like?  Use of goat cheese a plus but not a necessity.

Another quick and simple pasta recipe. Rich, creamy and wholesome, perfect for a dreary February evening (it's nasty and wet outside).

This is actually rather simple for a cook with any experience, but the results are spectacular. Recipe serves between 2 heavy appetites to 4 light ones (or with side dishes).

This was dinner tonight, made from assorted bits and pieces from the fridge that had accumulated.  It turned out very nice.  I will probably change a couple of things the next time I make it.  See notes at the end.

This was modified from my memory of a recipe I read in the newspaper a few days ago and was surprisingly tasty.

I don't tend to measure much, so I'm guessing at my amounts and consider it completely modifiable to your taste. My measurements made what I think will be about 4 servings.

Easy and tasty but a bit heavy on the dishes )

I am all full of chicken piccata and disinclined to finish my article, even though I am literally past the 95% mark. Instead, I post the recipe, originally from Cook's Illustrated (one of the few places I'm willing to pay for online content, because their recipes are just that good).
