Alfredo Mostaccioli
This sauce was so good! I made a few changes and added sauteed chicken tenders and broccoli. I used fresh garlic, fatfree evaporated milk, lowfat cream cheese, fresh grated parm reggiano and penne pasta. It came out great!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze
I already gave this recpipe a great reveiw, but I forgot to mention that I topped the filets with gorganzola and put them under the broiler just long enough to melt the cheese, then drizzled them with the glaze. It was delicious!

Braised Beef Short Ribs
Great recipe! Very easy and flavorful! After browning the meat, I deglazed with red wine. I used beef stock, enough to cover the meat, and I added a bay leaf. I thickened the gravy with cornstarch. I'll definately make this again!
