Arrabiata Sauce

Arrabiata translates to angry; so this is my angry sauce!  Actually it’s simply a spicy/strong tomato sauce flavoured heavily with red chili flakes and tons of garlic… yum!  Now I’m not promising you clean breath but if everyone is eating this then everyone cancels it out! ...more

Pork Stew with Tomatoes

This pork stew recipe is an extended version of pork nilaga (Filipino-style pork stew). The ingredients (e.g. pork, carrots, potatoes) are cut in big chunks; however, cooks slowly under low-medium heat so that flavors of the spices and tomatoes are infused into the chunks....more

Simple Tomato Sauce+Kitchen Tools+Giveway=Cooking Success!

About once a week, I make some sort of tomato sauce to use in different dishes.  I've got my tried and true Marinara but have needed to add something new.  After a little research, I came across this wonderful recipe from Lidia Bastianich.  I love her cookbooks and her philosophy on food....more

Sunday Pasta®: Penne al Sugo di Pomodoro (Tomato Sauce)

The secret to happiness (and perhaps sanity) is found somewhere between the song “Ball of Confusion” by The Temptations and my grandmother Virginia’s tomato sauce recipe. Below are a couple of verses from the 1970 song, but you should listen to the whole song and read the lyrics for maximum effect....more

Sunday Pasta®: Farfalle all’Arrabbiata (Spicy Tomato Sauce)

Floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee. I’ve been waiting to use this quote for about a year, ever since seeing the Muhammad Ali biopic, even though, as far as I know, he has absolutely no connection to either butterfly-shaped pasta or spicy tomato sauce. Still, I think the world play is genius!...more

Spaghetti with Kale and Tomato Sauce from bell'alimento

I've been eating more kale than ever before this year—mostly in raw salads, which have been hitting the spot for me lately. But even as kale season is winding down, I'm always on the hunt for other interesting ways to use this nutritional powerhouse in my cooking. That's why I love this recipe for Spaghetti with Kale and Tomato Sauce from bell'alimento: It has very few ingredients (most of which I almost always have in my pantry), but packs a vitamin and mineral punch while also staying low in calories. It's also versatile—no kale at your local market? Just substitute arugula for a more peppery flavor but an equally healthy Meatless Monday option....more
Love the recipe, Thanks you so much Genie!more

Beef Braciole Recipe


Tomato and Basil Pasta

This is my stand-by meal that I have been making since I was 17. I adapted it from my spaghetti bolognaise recipe, it’s basically the same meal just without the mince (ground beef for the americans). It’s really easy to make and doesn’t take longer than 30 – 40 minutes to make… I add basil when I can get hold of fresh basil but it isn’t necessary, it’s really delicious even without the basil.Tomato and Basil Pasta...more
