1-1/2 tsp oregano
1 cup Ritz crackers, crushed
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 egg
1/4 cup milk

2 TBS canola oil

Sauce:
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes

HOMEMADE FETTUCCINE ALFREDO

1 lb homemade fettuccine
8 TBS homemade unsalted butter
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup Romano cheese, grated
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder



1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp oregano

PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees and spray a shallow baking dish with oil.

Put the fettuccine on to cook in salted water. While the pasta is cooking, melt butter in a skillet and add the mushrooms, salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder. Saute on low for 5 minutes.

When the fettuccine is al dente, drain and place it in the prepared baking dish. Toss with the Romano cheese and then stir in the butter and mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted but not browned.






My secret to this rich and velvety sauce is the cream cheese. No, you can't taste it when it's done.  Enjoy this Italian pasta recipe.

EASY ALFREDO SAUCE RECIPE

1/2 cup homemade unsalted butter
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup Romano cheese, grated
pinch of nutmeg
1 cup half-and-half
1 cup milk
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp kosher salt or to taste

Melt butter in a heavy skillet on low and add the cream cheese and minced garlic; whisking while it is melting. Add the half-and-half and milk 1/2 cup at a time and whisk well after each addition.

Stir in the Parmesan and Romano cheese. When sauce thickens, take off the heat immediately. If it is too thick for your taste, just add a little more milk until you reach the desired consistency.





This Italian pasta recipe is so flavorful.

SICILIAN PASTA AND CAULIFLOWER

1 small head of cauliflower
1/4 cup olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
4-5 anchovies
1/4 cup additional olive oil
2 ounces raisins
2 ounces pignolia (pine nuts)
12 ounces thin spaghetti
grated Percorino cheese
fresh basil, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup homemade tomato sauce

Wash and cook the cauliflower in boiling salted water until done, but still firm. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve the water. Break into florets.

Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large skillet and add the onion, cooking until golden. Cover and cook over low to moderate heat.

Add the cauliflower florets. Rinse and dry the anchovies and heat them in with 1/4 cup olive oil in a small skillet over a low flame - crushing them with a fork.

Add anchovies and oil to the cauliflower. Add raisins and pine nuts. Stir and simmer for a few minutes.

Cook the pasta in the reserved water and drain. Add to the cauliflower mixture. Add the tomato sauce and sprinkle generously with the cheese and chopped basil. Mix well and serve immediately. Serves 4 to 5.
