Only the Best Parmesan Cheese Recipes
Baked Italian Meatballs
red pepper flakes, italian seasoning, parsley, garlic, breadcrumbs, ground beef, salt, mustard powder, parmesan cheese, tomato sauce
These are really tasty and I love that they are baked in the oven rather than pan-fried. I found this recipe in Cooking light originally and have made them several times with great success. They freeze well after cooking - I just thaw them and add them to simmering sauce for a great spaghetti dinner on busy nights.

Brussels Sprouts in Garlic Butter
This is a recipe from Joy of Cooking... totally changed my mind about Brussels Sprouts! It's imperative that you use fresh sprouts, the texture would be way off with the frozen ones.

Garlic Panko Chicken Strips
I needed something quick for dinner last night, and so created this on-the-spot — inspired by a garlic chicken recipe I read in a cookbook, which used whole chicken pieces, skin and bone. Plus I wanted to finish off my bag of panko so I could go buy a new one. I was so pleased with how this turned out that I intend to make it regularly. Panko are japanese bread crumbs and they are highly superior to any other type; please try to source them out for this dish rather than use regular dry bread crumbs. The "international" or "ethnic" aisle in your grocery store should sell panko; if not, complain to the manager!
A decidedly different take potato side dishes, as seen at Kincaids restaurants

This is the salad dressing I grew up with that my mom created. As a child, I didn't realize there were any alternatives. To this day, my mom's salad dressing is still a favorite. Very simple to prepare. If you make it a little ahead of time, it will allow the flavors to blend. I hope you enjoy it!

"This will definitely be the biggest hit at the party! This is such an easy appetizer to make and it tastes just like the jalapeno poppers you wish you could make yourself! The hardest part of this recipe is not eating it all by yourself! Serve with sliced sourdough baguettes, tortilla chips or crackers."

This is a wonderful easy side dish to chicken or meat and any leftovers freeze wonderful, it may also be baked in a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate and cut into wedges, this may be doubled but I would still only use one package or spinach or maybe 1-1/2 packages adding in too much spinach will overpower all other ingredients, prep time does not include cooking the rice --- FOR FREEZING prepare recipe as directed but do not bake, wrap pan in plastic wrap then tightly in foil and freeze, to serve thaw over night in refrigerator, remove wrapping bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until hot.

My Chicken Parmigiana
This is my husband's favorite meal and one I make for special occasions, such as birthday dinners. The cooking method of this particular version is different from the conventional chicken parmigiana recipes I always used to make. Once I tried this much easier and moister version, I never went back to the "old" method. I often use homemade sauce in this, but a good-quality bottled sauce, such as Classico or Barilla, is perfectly acceptable as well. I serve this chicken atop mounds of freshly cooked pasta with some additional heated sauce. I have often chosen to replace the mozzarella with thin slices of Provolone cheese. NOTE: Edited to add that pounding the chicken is not necessary with this method. Part of what we love about this recipe is that even the meatier pieces of chicken get so moist & tender as it braises in the sauce.

pasta, ham, oregano, garlic powder, sausage, mozzarella cheese, onions, parmesan cheese, pepperoni, tomato sauce
This is similar to many Baked Pasta dishes but with the distinct flavors of pizza. I created this recipe yesterday and took it to a dinner party as the main dish. It was a big hit and every woman there asked for the recipe. I decided that anything that popular should be posted here. You do not have to use the same kind of pasta I did...but should use a pasta which will remain slightly firm after boiling and baking so that it is not mushy. NOTE** I've had several people ask about when to add the spices...you can either add them to the sauce or to the sausage when you cook it. Either way works great! Since this recipe is an original creation of mine, it tickles me so very much that lots of people are enjoying it! Thanks everyone!
