Cheesy, delicious and impressive Pasta Pie will have your family and friends amazed by your effots. Believe it or not, it's simple to put together. Give it a try. See this recipe made on video here.With the enthusiasm my children showed for this recipe, you would have thought I reinvented the wheel. I guess rigatoni standing at attention has a way of impressing children? You bet it does. The key to this recipe, as far as taste goes, is using quality ingredients. Let's put this together: You will need: Crushed tomatoes, fresh garlic, Parmesan cheese and mozzarella. Ground beef, rigatoni pasta, olive oil, butter, salt and pepper are also needed. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook 1 pound rigatoni pasta until slightly underdone (I cooked mine for 12 minutes when the box indicated 14 minutes). Heat remaining 1 Tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 can good quality (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes; simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes. Print Recipe

CARROL LUNA Click on the link below to enlarge recipe (click!) Not bad for my first batch, huh? Have a great weekend! PS: All images ©Carrol Luna 2012 // Recipe adapted from “Poh’s Kitchen” TV series Cheesecake Bars I was in the mood for something cold and lip-smackingly sweet. Something I could sink my teeth into. Something to maintain my weight. So I made this treat with a few of my favorite things. Cheesecake. Chocolate. and these cookies. If you ever fly Delta, then you’ve probably had them before. They’re a crunchy, no-frills, sans chocolate type of cookie. So I thought they would be great to use for the cheesecake crust. Throw the cookies into a food processor and chop them up into beautiful golden brown cookie powder. About 1 1/2 cups worth. Then add 3 tablespoons of brown sugar. Don’t you love how packed brown sugar looks? To make the crust, mix the cookie crumbs and brown sugar together. Mix up the cheescake ingredients and pour it on the crust. Oh yeah! Then bake it at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes. And let it cool. And try not to eat it. Then whip up some chocolate ganache to pour on top. Oh yeah. Spread the chocolate evenly on top of the cheesecake and then refrigerate overnight.

Fettucine Carbonara with Roasted Tomatoes ? Our Life In The Kitchen I’ve been craving Carbonara for a while now but was having a hard time justifying the calories. The willpower was gone when I thought about throwing in some of the surplus cherry tomatoes from the garden. I also planned to make fresh homemade fettucine but I was too lazy busy to get around to it. Fettucine, a pound of dry or a couple of boxes of fresh or your own homemade.Pancetta, 3/4 poundYellow or White Onion, 1 mediumGarlic, 5 or 6 clovesEggs, 3Cream, 1 1/2 cupsFreshly Grated Parmesan, 1 cupCoarse Ground Black PepperCherry Tomatoes, 2 dozen or so Put the water for the fettucine up to boil. Dice the pancetta. Rinse the tomatoes and spread them on a baking pan. Fry up the pancetta in a large saute pan. While the pancetta is cooking and the tomatoes are broiling, slice the onion and chop the garlic. Whisk together the eggs, cream and cheese. By now the pancetta should be getting crispy. The water should be boiling so start cooking the fettucine. Add the pancetta… ..and the tomatoes.

Pesto Chicken Stuffed Shells When I'm in my cooking 'zone', creative juices tend to flow and I start throwing random things together so nothing goes to waste. This recipe is a result of using up leftover ingredients I had from other dishes I prepared for the freezer. I figured chicken, pesto and cheese would work with pasta fairly well and so I hoped for the best. We enjoyed these Pesto Chicken Stuffed Shells from the freezer and even my husband was impressed how these came out! I guess I'll have to make this again soon and/or experiment some more... I come from the school that any good tasting filling is versatile in different applications, whether it be stuffed into baked dough, layered or stuffed with pasta or even used as a pizza topping. This dish came about after realizing I had quite a few leftovers of pesto, cooked and shredded chicken, various cheesse and jumbo pasta shells. Pesto Chicken Stuffed Shells original Joelen recipe

Whoopie Pies! I just tried out a book that’s all about Whoopie Pies. One of the writers of the book (Amy) is also the editor of my book, Cake Pops. Amy sent me a copy to check out and I couldn’t be more excited for her. I made and fell in love with these sugar-filled sandwiches. They are delish! They’re like little cakes shaped like cookies… (but pie-like… not so much.) It’s funny… when I gave these treats away, everyone loved them, but no one knew what to call them. No worries if you haven’t. There’s a section devoted to cakes… And a section devoted to fillings. Lots and lots of whoopie. Yum! I decided to make the classic chocolate whoopie (big surprise) and paired it with peanut butter filling. After you mix up the batter, drop it by spoonfuls on a parchment covered baking sheet. After they bake and cool for a few minutes carefully remove them from the parchment paper. Place them flat side up on a cookie rack. Or pipe it on. I like piping it on. And prettier to look at. And press gently. Good luck!

The Best Pasta Sauce Ever Do me a favor: MAKE THIS PASTA SAUCE FOR DINNER TONIGHT! I think you’ll thank me. It’s absolutely, positively, hands down, 100% the best pasta sauce I have ever tasted. And I’ve had a lot of pasta sauce experience so you must understand how bold of a statement I just made. I know. But, through my love of Italian restaurants, I developed a love for vodka sauce, a sweet mixture of tomato and cream with a hint of spice from the vodka. But truthfully, I think the secret is the shallots. Anyway, I couldn’t be more proud of my concoction that I just needed to share it with the rest of the world. Step 1: Chop up 1 lg. shallot, 2 cloves garlic and 1/4 onion. Need a new saucepan? Step 2: Add canned tomatoes (make sure to drain the liquid!) Step 3: Add cream and vodka. When it’s done, it should look like this: …a simmering bowl of delicious tomato-ey creamy wonderfully flavored goodness! Now, pour it over some pasta. The only thing I didn’t like was the pasta itself! Delicious Homemade Vodka Sauce
