Andrea's Pasta Fagioli
I would have given this 5 stars, because alone it is pretty darn tasty... BUT: I increased the amount of liquid x2 and its still not soup-y with a full pound of pasta. My suggestion is to cut down on the amount of pasta.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing
I made this for a Thanksgiving potluck at work. I used an entire [large] loaf of whole wheat bread, because it is what I had. I added extra bread that what is called for, because the meat/bread ratio seems a bit off for stuffing. I used turkey sausage [italian] as suggested. For something a bit more traditional, this could be omitted. I'm not a huge fan of sausage, but I have to say this stuffing is pretty good! If I made this again, I would add cornbread cubes, less meat, and less sage. For those of you who want to make this in a pan instead of stuffed in a turkey: [for the changes I made, using more bread cubes] I added a total of 2.5 cups of chicken stock to the pan once I had all the ingredients in. Baked covered for 30 minutes and about 15-20 minutes uncovered. Keep checking it after you uncover it. I stirred it up 1/2 way through the uncovered cooking process.] Spoon it into a serving dish, and voila!

Kim's Garlic Breadsticks
I have to agree that the dough needs some garlic in it as well. I used 3x time butter and garlic on top just to make them taste like garlic bread sticks. Otherwise, I think they turned out alright. I have a mix of 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white flour... so these came out a bit more dense, and I'm sure that it has something to do with the. also. If you can let them rise for longer than an hour, I believe they'd turn out better. I was in a time crunch so I couldn't test this theory.
