ingredients
 
  • 3    cups   water
  • 1/4   cup   lemon juice
  • 15      fresh baby artichokes
  • 9      dried lasagna noodles
  • 3    tablespoons   olive oil
  • 1/2   cup   pine nuts
  • 4    cloves  garlic, minced
  • 1    15 ounce carton  ricotta cheese
  • 1    cup   finely shredded Parmesan cheese (4 oz.)
  • 1    cup   snipped fresh basil
  • 1      egg
  • 3/4   teaspoon   salt
  • 1    cup   vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1/4   cup   all-purpose flour
  • 2    cups   half-and-half or light cream
  • 1    cup   shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz.)
 
directions
In a large bowl, combine the water and lemon juice; set aside. Cut off the base of each artichoke. Snap off outer leaves until you reach leaves that are yellow at the bottom. Cut off the top third of artichokes; quarter artichokes. Immediately place artichokes in water mixture to keep them from browning. Drain artichokes.
 
 
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain again. In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Add artichokes, pine nuts, and half of the garlic. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until artichokes are tender, stirring frequently. Transfer to the large bowl. Stir in ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup of the basil, the egg, and salt.
 
 
For sauce:
 
In a small bowl or glass measure, combine broth and flour. In the large saucepan, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add the remaining garlic; cook and stir until garlic is tender but not brown. Stir in flour mixture and half-and-half. Cook and stir until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup basil.
 
 
In a small bowl, combine mozzarella cheese and the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.
 
 
To assemble, spread about 1 cup of the sauce over the bottom of an ungreased 3-quart shallow baking dish. Layer three of the cooked noodles in the dish. Spread with one-third of the artichoke mixture and one-third of the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the mozzarella mixture. Repeat layering noodles, artichoke mixture, sauce, and mozzarella mixture two more times.
 
 
Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes until edges are bubbly and top is lightly browned. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving. Makes 12 servings.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces whole-wheat linguine
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined raw shrimp, (16-20 per pound)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 16 cups thinly sliced escarole, (2-3 heads) or chard leaves
  • 1/4 cup clam juice, or water (see Shopping Tip)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 6 lemon wedges, for garnish

Preparation

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook linguine until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 3 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook until pink and curled, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add garlic and the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add wine and cook until reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes. Add escarole (or chard) in handfuls, stirring until it wilts before adding more; cook, stirring occasionally, until the greens are tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Whisk clam juice (or water) and cornstarch in a small bowl then add to the pan; simmer until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Return the shrimp and any accumulated juices to the pan, add lemon juice, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
  4. Drain the linguine and return it to the pot. Add the sauce; toss to coat. Serve with lemon wedges.

Tips & Notes

Friday, 24 October 2014
ingredients
 
  • 3    tablespoons   butter or margarine
  • 1    10 ounce package  regular marshmallows (about 40) or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6    cups   Cocoa Rice Krispies® or 6 cups Ready-To-Eat Cereal Rice Krispies®
  •     Candy corn, jelly beans, candy-coated chocolate pieces and/or black string licorice
 
directions
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
 
 
Add KELLOGG'S® COCOA KRISPIES® cereal. Stir until well coated.
 
 
Using 1/2-cup measuring cup coated with cooking spray divide warm cereal mixture into portions. Using buttered hands shape each portion into ball. Decorate with candy to make cat eyes, nose, mouth, ears and whiskers. Best if served the same day.
 
 
Microwave Directions:
 
In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.
 
 
Note
 
For best results, use fresh marshmallows. 1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme can be substituted for marshmallows. Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended. Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container. To freeze, place in single layer on wax paper in airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving. Kellogg's® has reduced the sodium content of Rice Krispies® to meet current consumer flavor- and nutrition-preferences. Rice Krispies® Treats made with the lower sodium cereal taste great without any added salt, but, if you desire, add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the butter before melting. Continue with recipe as directed.
