I love to go into the Italian market and marvel at all the different shapes, sizes and names of the assorted pasta on display. All to be used in many varieties of dinner ideas from rare Italian recipes to easy pasta recipes such as my Dad's plain old (delicious) mac and cheese.

Chicken Cacciatore and Steak and Eggplant Pasta are two of my favorite Italian pasta recipes. Both can be found in the Italian cooking recipes section of Michele Romano Recipes. Image: Michele Romano


What a vasta world of a pasta and sauces we live in! Easy pasta recipes, such as, Geeg Toscano's Pasta Shuta or a little more time consuming like Joey Romano's famous Spaghetti and Meatball Recipe. You will find both of these killer dishes in the Romano/Toscano Top Secret Recipes Family Cookbook. (Joey Romano's famous Spaghetti and Meatball Recipe has never been revealed to anyone except his five children!)

Lets Talk Pasta

Let me talk to you for a moment about pasta itself. Not only can you cook with duram semolina pasta (white). You have the option to choose from many different types. Whole wheat pasta, brown rice pasta, kamut pasta and one of my new absolute favorites is organic Quinoa gluten-free pasta. I use all them at times but mostly I like to use Quinoa or whole wheat pasta for health and weight loss reasons. Sometimes I mix with white (to fool my husband). We all know that white pasta tends to turn into sugar being a complex carb.

If you can't get your family to eat the whole wheat pasta, a good substitute is the new catelli smart pasta. They contain chicory root which is high in fiber.

An Important Note When Cooking My Italian Pasta Recipes

Something that is very important. Do not ever overcook your pasta! I suggest that you throw it at the wall to see if it sticks. No, just teasing ya. lol. It must be al dente (firm, never mushy). It continues to cook even after you drain it. I never go far from my pot when I am cooking pasta of any kind. In my humble opinion, over cooked pasta ruins every dish. (unless of course you are making baby food).
