Turkey Tetrazzini II
Great basic recipe, although I tweaked to fit what I had on hand and liked my substitutions. Used 1 cup heavy cream instead of 2 cups milk (richer, thicker), used 1/3 cup flour, used turkey stock (obvious leftover from Thanksgiving bird!), used wide egg noodles instead of spaghetti (not a tangled mess). Added sauteed onions & sliced mushrooms. Also added small brocolli florets, plunged in with noodles near the end of cooking. Added a pinch of nutmeg. Added seasoned bread crumbs on top per other review (definite crispy plus!). I know...not much like the original recipe, but it shows that you can add/change to your liking. That's why I gave it 5 stars!

BLT Pasta Salad
I love pasta, I love ranch and I love BLT's. I wanted to LOVE this recipe too, but it just didn't come through. It was bland, even when mixed fresh. I cooled the pasta on a cookie sheet and lightly drizzled/tossed with olive oil to prevent the dressing from absorbing. Chilled for 3 hours and by then all the dressing was absorbed anyway. The bacon was excellent & I used whole grape tomatoes which were good. Just the pasta part was bland. Not necesarily a bad recipe, but I'll stick to vinaigrette dressings from now on.

Southwestern Roasted Corn Salad
I used canned corn (Trader Joes) as a shortcut and it tasted great! Roasted corn is probably better, but I can't resist such a timesaving substitution. I also like it spicy so I added additonal hot sauce. I'll add diced jalapeno's next time for a fresh, crunchy kick. Recommend reducing the olive oil just a bit. Will definitely make again for my next BBQ.
