Hamburger Mac 'n' Cheese In reply to
1 box macaroni and cheese
1 can cream of celery soup
1 pound hamburger
1 packet Lipton onion soup mix
1 onion, chopped
Make a box of macaroni and cheese by the directions on the box or however you normally make it. (I use Kraft. Also depending on how big your family is, I usually make up two boxes of macaroni and cheese and 2 cans of cream of celery soup. But still just 1 pound of hamburger and 1 packet of soup mix.)
Brown your hamburger with 1 packet of Lipton onion soup and 1 chopped onion. Put macaroni and cheese in the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch pan. Then layer the hamburger on top of the mac n cheese. Then layer the hamburger with the cream of celery soup. Put in oven or microwave and heat until it bubbles through. In the microwave about 15 minutes and in the oven about 30 minutes. Sometimes I also add a package of frozen corn as another layer. My kids really like the corn in it.
It sounds strange but kids seem to love it as well as adults. Hope you enjoy it.

Homemade Noodles In reply to
1 egg
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Combine egg, oil and water. Beat well. Add flour with baking powder sifted into it. A little more flour may be needed to make dough easy to roll. This depends on size of egg. Roll out the dough as thinly as possible. Leave on counter or table to dry. Turn over once.
Cut into thin strips. Boil in salted broth in which chicken has cooked or use in homemade vegetable soup.

Homemade Noodles 2 In reply to
3 large eggs, beaten
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
Machine method
Combine eggs and flour in the bowl of a food processor and process until the dough forms a ball. Remove from the bowl and knead on a floured surface until the dough is no longer sticky, adding more flour as necessary. The dough should be firm, with a smooth, leathery feel.
Divide the dough into quarters, and work with one quarter at a time. With the pasta machine set on the widest setting, feed the pieces of dough through and fold into thirds, repeating this 8 or 10 times to further knead the dough. Feed the dough through progressively narrower settings until the desired thickness is reached. Finally, feed the dough through the cutting attachment. Form the resulting noodles into little piles, or hang over wooden dowels to dry if you don't plan to cook them immediately.
Manual method
Put the flour on a clean work surface and make a well in the middle. Add the beaten eggs to the well, and using a fork or the tips of your fingers, incorporate the flour with the eggs, working from the center of the well towards the outer edge of the flour, until a loose, moist dough is formed. Knead the dough on a floured surface, adding more flour if necessary to form a firm, smooth dough.
Roll the dough out into a large circle, dusting the dough with flour as needed, and turning it 90 degrees after each pass with the rolling pin. Roll to a thickness of no more than 1/8 inch or as thin as possible. Allow the dough to rest for 15 to 30 minutes, until it has a dry, leathery feel.
Fold the dough over on itself several times until a long, flat "log" about 3 inches wide is formed. Using a very sharp knife, cut across the log to make noodles of the desired width. Gently unroll the slices to separate the individual noodles. Form the noodles into little piles, or hang over wooden dowels to dry if you don't plan to cook them immediately.
Using either method, the noodles may be cooked immediately, or dried and stored unrefrigerated and uncovered in a large bowl or platter for up to a month. Be aware that the dried noodles are very brittle, and will break if not handled very gently.
To cook
Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of salt when the water boils. Add the noodles all at once and stir gently. The fresh noodles will be done 5 to 10 seconds after the water returns to the boil. Dried noodles will take a little longer, but usually no more than 30 seconds. Drain the noodles as soon as they are "al dente'" or tender but still firm to the tooth. Serve immediately with the sauce of your choice.
Serves 4 to 6.

Homemade Noodles with Poppy Seeds In reply to
4 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1 tablespoon oil
In large bowl, beat eggs with salt. Beat in 1 cup flour. Continue adding small amount of flour.

Cover dough with a bowl and let rest for 1 hour.
Divide dough into fourths. With rolling pin, roll one portion into a rectangle 1/8 inch thick. Dust with flour and tightly roll up jellyroll fashion. With sharp knife, cut into 1/8-inch slices. Uncurl slices and set aside. Repeat process with remaining dough.
In small saucepan, melt butter and sauté onions until soft. Add poppy seeds. Stir and set aside.
Add oil to large pot of boiling water. Cook noodles until tender. Drain and toss with poppy seed mixture.

Judy's Homemade Manicotti In reply to
Dough
4 eggs
1 tablespoon oil
2 cups flour
Dash of salt
Water to right texture
Mix all ingredients; adding enough water to make the consistency of a thin pancake batter. Lightly spray a 7-inch or 8-inch frying pan with non-stick spray.
Using a 1/3 measuring cup, fill it 3/4 of the way and pour batter into hot pan. Cook until barely set, flip and remove immediately to wax paper.
Makes 18
Filling
2 pounds ricotta cheese
2 eggs
Grated cheese, parsley, garlic powder to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Pour enough sauce to cover bottom of pan. Set aside.
Take one manicotti shell and spoon filling in a line, slightly off center, about 1/2 inch from edges. (You'll know better after the first one how much to use. I start with a serving spoon full.) Roll manicotti up and place in baking dish. Continue for all. Pour sauce over manicotti; sprinkle with grated cheese and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
Footsie Note: You can make these ahead and refrigerate or freeze, but use a glass baking dish as the acid in the sauce reacts with foil and aluminum. You can also freeze just the pasta (flat, wax paper or plastic wrap in between each "crepe"). Must be thoroughly thawed before attempting to separate. Trust me I found out the hard way. Sometimes I just make half a recipe since there are only 2 of us. If you want to prepare the manicotti and then freeze it, skip the addition of the sauce until it's time to bake them.

Lasagna Bolognese In reply to
For the Bolognese sauce
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound ground beef
4 ounces prosciutto (se Note No. 2 below)
4 ounces pancetta
2 celery stalked, trimmed and chopped
2 large carrots, peeled, trimmed and chopped
2 onions, peeled, trimmed and chopped
2 to 3 tablespoons tomato paste, diluted in a little water
1/2 cup tomato puree
4 cups dry red wine
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the white sauce (besciamella)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups light cream, heated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Freshly grated nutmeg
Unsalted butter for baking dish
2 to 3 cups grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
About 1 pound cooked and drained lasagna noodles
To make the Bolognese sauce, melt the butter with the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the ground beef, prosciutto, pancetta, celery, carrot and onion and sauté, stirring often, until the vegetables are soft and lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste diluted with water, the tomato puree and the wine. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The sauce should be very thick and richly condensed after the long simmering. check from time to time if it needs more liquids and add wine or water as needed. Season with salt and pepper.
To make the white sauce, melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, until it is well incorporated, about 3 minutes. Slowly and gradually stir in the hot cream and cook, stirring often, until quite thick and the flour has lost all of its raw taste, about 8 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and a mere pinch of nutmeg. Remove from heat.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
To assemble the lasagna, spoon a thin layer of Bolognese sauce at the bottom of a 9 x 12 x 3-inch baking dish that has been lightly buttered with unsalted butter. Add a layer of cooked lasagna noodles. Top with Bolognese, then a layer of white sauce, then a sprinkling of Parmigiano-Reggiano. Repeat this layering process, beginning with the noodles and ending with the cheese. Dot the top with bits of unsalted butter. Bake until heated through, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes, then cut into 8 or 12 portions.
Serves 8 to 12.
Note No. 1: Since my lasagna was to be cooked well ahead and kept warm in the oven over several hours, I made my last layering in the lasagna process a thin film of meat sauce. This kept the lasagna from drying out.
Note No. 2: I have to plug my favorite prosciutto here. San Daniele, from the town of the same name in Friuli Venezia-Giulia, is sweeter and earthier than regular prosciutto, and connoisseurs often prefer it to the celebrated Parma. San Daniele now is available in this country, and a good one is being sold at Wegmans in Manalapan. It's what I used in this recipe.
