Rigatoni alla Puttanesca e Arrabbiata
We loved this recipe! I usually make the traditional puttanesca, with anchovies, but the arrabbiata style gave it a unique twist. Since it is winter, and fresh tomatoes are virtually flavorless, I used two 14.5 oz cans of diced garlic flavored tomatoes, drained, instead. I also used herbed feta for the topping because that's what I had in the fridge. I didn't add any extra salt, since the olives, capers and cheese are already high in sodium. I also cooked an extra cup of rigatoni and the recipe served three adults as a main course. My "purist" Italian husband had a philosophical issue with using feta instead of a traditional Italian cheese, but it is excellent as written and I will definitely make it again.

Vegetable Lovers' Fried Rice
This recipe is now a family favorite! I "cheated" a little by using two bags of "boil-in-bag" rice (just put the bags on a plate in the fridge after they are cooked) and I purchased a bag of fresh stir fry veggies in the produce section instead of buying, washing and chopping the celery, mushrooms, bell pepper, carrots and snow peas. Add a bit of extra soy sauce at the end and enjoy!

Spicy Italian Salad
I wanted a special salad to accompany the pasta dinner I made for my father-in-law's 90th birthday and I'm thrilled to have found this tasty recipe! So many salads are forgettable, but this one stands out; everyone loved it. For maximum dresing flavor, be sure to drain the artichoke hearts really well. I placed each piece upside down on a paper towel and pressed down lightly to remove as much liquid as possible. I also added some mozzarella fresca (fresh, marinated mozzarella balls) just before serving. This one gets a rave review from my family!
