Turkey Carcass Soup
Makes a nice hearty soup. I left out tomatoes, cabbage & potatoes but added extra carrots, celery & barley. I simmered the carcass on very low heat for more than three hours which produced a thick, gelatinous liquid. However this also dried out the white meat so I chopped that for the dogs & used only the dark meat in the soup. Then I chilled the strained liquid overnight & skimmed off a thick, pudding-like layer of fat before proceeding with step 2. Everyone asked for seconds!

Baked Brussels Sprouts
Simple yet tasty way of preparing sprouts, which was my nightmare food from childhood. Don't like Feta so I grated Peccorino Romano cheese over top. I also toasted the pine nuts before adding.

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli
I make a very similar dish which we like very much but with the following changes: Bratwurst instead of Italian sausage, steamed fresh broccoli w/nutmeg, mushrooms, grated Romano instead of Parmesan cheese &, like many other reviewers - lots more garlic. The brat, broccoli & mushrooms are each sauteed separately & set aside until all ingredients are combined in the final step. Here's how I do it differently: 1) Bratwurst: I remove the casings from the Bratwurst (which I find more flavorful than Italian sausage) & saute the meat loose so that, in the final product, it's distributed evenly throughout the dish; 2) Broccoli/nutmeg: I peel the broccoli, cut into bitesize florets & steam just until the color turns a bright green. I then shock the broccoli in cold water to halt the cooking process & set it aside. When combining all the ingredients, I sprinkle 1/4 tsp nutmeg over the broccoli to bring out the flavor. 3) Mushrooms: Quarter & saute (button or crimini) mushrooms until golden brown. In the final dish the pasta becomes a rich golden brown from the sauteed/carmelized meat & mushrooms. Mmmmmmm...delish!
