    i love to cook..i trained as a sous and saute chef, and spent a couple years as a pastry chef..food is one of the great parts of life..i figured i'd share some of my recipes..

    eat healthy!!

    some awesome products have surfaced recently, most notably barilla dried tortelloni..inexpensive, tasty, and it makes a bunch!

    they also make a no boil lasagna that is the shit!

    to make a nice size lasagna, just get yourself a package of the no boil lasgana
    16 oz ricotta cheese
    (mix with about 1 cuop parmasan, and some parsley and a beaten egg)
    grated mozzarella
    veggies (if desired) for the layers..like red peppers, onions or mushrooms
    some delicious pasta sauce (classico and barilla are good)

    start with the pasta, follow it with some ricotta and mozarella
    top with the sauce and veggies, repeat with the layering
    top with any leftover cheese
    bake for about 45 minutes @ 375 degrees, let it sit for about 15

    it's better as leftovers..so make a big pan

    **if you want meat, just brown some ground beef with salt and pepper in a pan, mix with the sauce, prepare as above**

    to make a homemade sauce for the lasagna
    16 oz can crushed tomatoes
    can of tomato paste
    2 cloves garlic
    half a small onion
    salt pepper (to taste..don't overdo it..you can always add more)
    oregano (about a half tsp of each)
    dash sugar

    heat garlic and onion in a bit of oil until soft and brown..add spices to taste, add crushed tomatoes and the paste..mix well on low heat for a few minutes..taste and alter if needed, add a dash of suger to cut any acidity..cool a bit before using in lasagna if boiling hot

    ..so if anyone cares, i'll post a new recipe everyday
    tomorrow: veggie sloppy joes, anyone?

    I heard about the infamous garlic bread... you might have to hook up the recipe for that. I'd appreciate it if you posted some recipes every other day. I'm tired of spending money on going out to eat every day. I need to learn how to cook (or else no one is gonna marry me) according to my mother....
