Sounds great! How do you make the "noodles?"

May 26, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I have had great success with this recipe by preheating and baking at 340 degrees F. It takes 10 or minutes longer, but avoids burnt edges and mushy center. In my opinion using a larger skillet would effect the height/thickness of the cookie base. Also great as a brownie sundae. If you're crunched for time, but want to impress, buy a good quality...

Delicious? Yes. 20 minute prep? NO WAY! After reading other reviews regarding cold pasta, complicated instructions, etc., I felt compelled to share a few tips that have allowed me to enjoy a successful outcome without compromising the wonderful taste of this meal. First, if you are on a budget purchase shrimp with shells on. I remove the shells and...

AWESOME! Very versatile. You can use any herbs and firm fish you like. Keep it simple or jazz it up - it never disappoints! I make extra for dinner and use the leftovers to make great fish tacos! One day, I realized that I can keep the fish in the pan and finish it in the oven at 400 for 3 - 4 minutes. Easy cleanup. I only use parsley in my herb mixture....

Just finished making this as a side dish for our dinner tonight. I have to say that it is a very tasty version (and here are 100's of versions) of "German Potato" salad. I would recommend that you taste before adding the 2nd T of sugar - it was sweet enough for my taste at that point. Also omitted liquid smoke because I don't like it - just used...

Absolutely delicious! I agree with others that it is even better with ground turkey. Very easy and forgiving recipe if you don't have one or more of the ingredients. You can sub light cream or half and half for heavy cream without worry (Emeril uses whole milk in his recipe). You can sub fresh parsley for basil and it will still be great. I prefer...

WOW!!! For those who don't care for corned beef, try using smoked turkey breast or baked ham from the deli - delicious! Especially with the Swiss cheese!

The leeks were stringy because they need to be sauteed longer at a lower heat. They DON'T need to be boiled. Also used bacon fat to saute. YUM!

Perfect as is. I make this at least once a week. A few tips - if you don't like mustard leave it out - it's still delicious. If you are diabetic like me, replace 2T of sugar with 1T Splenda (no one knows the difference). If you have to watch your salt intake, celery seed is a great replacement for celery salt. One time I didn't have any onion in...

This is my favorite turkey meatball recipe! Taste and texture is spot-on. Recently I have been on a mission to reduce the amount of net carbs in my favorite recipes, and had great success with this recipe. I didn't want to skip the breadcrumbs so looked elsewhere in the recipe for possible reductions. I replaced 3T of ketchup (15 carbs) with 1T tomato...

Since making this dressing, I have not been able to tolerate any of the bottled dressings in my fridge. Every one in my family loves it, and have asked me to NEVER buy bottled dressing again! I have varied the recipe using different types of infused oils, but I have found that it is critical to use a really good quality balsamic - worth the cost"

Have made this several times. This recipe is so-o-o easy and very delicious! Serve it with sour cream and lo carb salsa. If I have time I will sear the chicken in a hot pan for 1 minute on each side before putting in the oven (cut bake time to 15 minutes) - this seems to make the chicken even more tender and juicy. If I'm in a hurry I will mari...
