Peppered Shrimp Alfredo
Fantastic, Made Exactly as the directions say- but a heaping teaspoon of cayenne pepper and whoa was it spicy. I would recommend to go a little easy on the oil and butter and I went with 2 jars of alfredo sauce due to all the oil from the butter and olive oil. Great little dish that I will be making again and again...THANK YOU! Super Easy to make, I had it done in about 40 min.. Highly Recommend

World's Best Lasagna
I did see the recipe and cooking italian for most of the town kids for 18 years, they know that this is the only place in town to get a good italian meal. I use pretty much the same ingredients, I dont like sweet so, I use pizza sausage homemade from my local grocery store. I use 98% Lean beef, I use Fresh basil leaves large, I use Green/Red Peppers, and 4-5 Celery stalks, Here is some of the changes, I will chop all the veggies, while browning the meat, I then drain the meat in a strainer, I add olive oil to the pan I just cooked the meat in and I cook all the veggies till soft, I love garlic so I use as much as possible. All veggies and meat go into pot with 1/2 can water and cook down for about an hour or 2 when the flavor is just right- put some romano in the sauce it gives the sauce a good flavor when it cooks down. When layering I put a full layer of fresh basil leaves whole. Give it a try let me know how it goes...
