Hearty tubes of cooked manicotti are stuffed with an opulent blend of ricotta, mozzarella and Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, bread crumbs and parsley. Bake the stuffed pasta blanketed with spaghetti sauce and topped with mozzarella cheese.
A twelve-hour stint in the refrigerator makes all the difference in this crowd-pleasing layered salad. The mayonnaise dressing that 's spread over the top trickles down, and all the flavors come together.
A match made in heaven: scrambled eggs and zucchini. Note: this recipe is easily doubled, tripled, etc. Ratio of 1 to 2 zucchini per egg. Great served over rice. Variations: add one clove diced garlic to oil before adding zucchini. Or, add any of your favorite fresh herbs; they combine well with the eggs and zucchini. My favorite additions are oregano or rosemary. You could also add two teaspoons soy sauce to beaten eggs, or sprinkle over egg and zucchini when cooked.
Put those tangy green Granny apples to good use by canning up a batch of caramel-flavored apple jam to enjoy during the cold months. Plenty of brown sugar and a dash of butter flavoring give the jam its special caramel flavor.
You can't have a Danish holiday meal without endless platters of dilled shrimp. Served on a red serving platter, it makes the perfect Christmas dish that will have your guests heaping up pyramids of shrimp on their plates. No Scandinavian buffet would be complete without it!
The delicate flavors of the fish are richly enhanced by the sweet tang of the wood planks. The mango salsa gives it a spicy flare. Just about any fish will work, I have used tilapia and it turns out well. This is great served with rice pilaf.
