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.

Perfect Pasta with no watching and no sweating
This doesn't save time but it does make consistently al dente pasta every time (very important for folks in warm climates like mine in New Orleans). It cuts down on the steam you put out into your kitchen.
Yummy addition to pasta, cheese spreads, salads on toasted crispy bread, grilled fish or chicken, pizza toppings, etc. You can jar it and use as needed! The olive oil is a judgment call on you own taste. If you want it thick and chunky or creamy.Check out the video at this link
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!
