I like using pasta in many of the recipes here, either as a ingredient or used to serve a dish over. I use wide fettuccine more than I do potatoes. A simple cheese sauce and any kind of meat and vegetables, you have a perfect meal. Very versatile product. Much the pasta I use is imported from Italy, good quality and very reasonably priced. All sauces I use are home made.
Sauces can be:
Cream cheese based
Olive oil based
Tomato sauce based
Additions to the sauces can be:
Italian sausage (home made)
And any number of things like chopped bell peppers, onions, black olives, etc.
Ham and Peas
Chicken and Bacon
Sardines (both olive oil and tomato based)
Pasta I use: (many of the imports are cheaper than local produced)
Maccheroni (import) (Favorite!)
Wide Fettuccine (import) (Favorite, and is a Egg Noodle as well.)
