Tomato Basil Pasta
Next time I'll make this without the onions or I will cut the number of onions in half and saute the onion and garlic first so that they are soft. My family and I didn't care for this as prepared above at all. Hopefully the flavors will be enhanced once the dish has had a chance to sit in the fridge.

Jalapeno Popper Spread
Made this recipe as written the first time and it was good. Made it again and modified the ingredients a bit which really enhanced the flavor. I replaced mayo with sour cream which has more of a tang to it. I also incorporated about a cup of shredded sharp cheddar to the dip Finally, I mixed melted butter, bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper and spread it evenly over the top of the dip. Poppers are usually breaded, so this step makes it taste like the real deal. :) 10 minutes before the dip comes out of the oven, I also sprinkle a bit of cheddar on the top and allow it to melt. Enjoy! Served this with cubed rye bread and guests literally wanted to lick the plate. Everyone asked for the thanks for postng!

Insanely Amazing Jalapeno Cheese Dip
Three stars as is but five stars with some easy changes. Having made this recipe several times before, I recommend the following changes/ additions: Substitutie 1 ( 8 oz) package of soft cream cheese, and 1/4 cup of sour cream to replace mayo (mayo is too sweet and sour cream adds a needed tang), bake this in a greased casserole dish instead of a bread bowl and then serve with toasted french baguettes (dough wont get soggy then and dip forms a golden brown layer on top). Divide the parmasen cheese into two half cups. Incorporate one 1/2 cup with the cream cheese mixture and save the other 1/2 cup for a topping (also my addition). Mix 1/4 tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste into cream cheese and sour cream mixture. For the topping, combine 3/4 cup Italian bread crumbs, the 2nd 1/2 cup of parmesan, 4 TBS melted butter and salt and pepper to taste. Once you have transferred the dip to the baking dish, spread the bread crumb mixture evenly over the top. Bake uncovered in a 350 oven for 30 minutes (or until the top is bubbly and golden brown). Serve with toasted baguettes. I would highly recommend doubling this recipe for a crowd. I always run out even after doubling and literally have people licking the bowl. SO GOOD! Thanks!
