    Pasta Milanese Recipe

    Pasta Milanese Recipe - This recipe isn’t just delicious but also has a very spiritual meaning for lots of Sicilian New Orleanian. Pasta Milanese is a St. Joseph’s Day tradition for Sicilians. The Saint Joseph’s Day menu is meat-free because this day falls during the Lenten season. The tradition of St. Joseph’s Day altars goes back for centuries. Sicilians had been suffering from famine because of the country’s poor farming and drought. When they could not provide for their families any longer, the Sicilians turned to their faith. They prayed to St. Joseph so they would have a successful crop and end the famine. The farmers and fishermen gathered together to feed their country in the only way they knew how — by building altars in their homes and sharing their food in honor of St. Joseph. The tradition is carried on today throughout Sicily and Italy and across America. The toasted breadcrumbs that are added as a garnish, represent the carpenter St. Joseph’s wood shavings.

    Pasta Salad Recipe

    Pasta Salad Recipe - The great thing about Pasta Salad is how versatile it is! You can make a Mediterranean style dish with cucumbers, olives and feta. If you prefer Italian Pasta Salad, you can use pepperoni, salami, olives and mozzarella. It's probably best not to make it too far ahead of time. As a result, the pasta can become swollen and mushy. Try Sal and Judy's Creole Sicilian Dressing with this pasta salad recipe!

    Eggplant Parmesan Recipe

    Eggplant Parmesan Recipe - For this recipe we fried the eggplant but for a lighter recipe, you can also bake them in the oven or use an air fryer. I love crunch, thin eggplant slices but feel free to cut them as thick as you like. Eggplants are high in fiber, vitamin b1, and copper. It’s also a brain food so now you can justify eating something fried. Top your Eggplant Parmesan off with our Original Pasta Sauce!

    Sicilian-Style Baked Chicken Breast

    Sicilian-Style Baked Chicken Breast Recipe - Pro Tip: You can use handmade salami, but good-quality supermarket salami works fine. Try to find firm green olives such as Sicilian-cured sevillanos or French lucques or picholine olives. Jarred green olives would suffice in a pinch, but they will make the dish extra-salty and compromise its texture. Try our Olive Oil!

    Bolognese Recipe - Bolognese sauce, also known in Italy as ragú, originates from the Italian city, Bologna. The meats used in a Bolognese sauce are traditionally 50% each of ground beef and pork.

    Baked Mostaccioli

    Also known as baked ziti or baked penne, baked Mostacciloi tastes a bit like lasagna but without so much work. You can use ground turkey, and/or turkey breakfast sausage and add veggies for an even healthier option. Since you are going to bake this dish in sauce you want to make sure you cook the pasta to al dente. This means that you want the pasta to be firm when you bite it – not hard, just firm. The pasta will continue to cook and absorb the sauce when it’s in the baking dish. If you’ve overcooked the pasta in the boiling water, it will come out mushy after baking.

    Creamy, delicious and a family pleaser! It’s perfect for the warmer months as well because it involves very little time over the hot stove but is hearty enough for the biggest appetites. Substitute chicken to make a chicken fettuccine Alfredo. Pro tip: Rinse your shrimp well in a colander before cooking so you don’t get a “fishy” taste in your sauce

    Sal & Judy’s Chicken Parmesan

    Just the words “Chicken Parmesan” makes my mouth water! Juicy, tender chicken breaded in a mixture of parmesan cheese and panko breadcrumbs. YUM! You can fry it, bake it or use an air fryer to make the chicken. Trying to cut carbs? Use zoodles for a heart healthy alternative. Pro tip: The best way to bread the chicken is to keep one hand for wet ingredients and one hand for dry. This helps from getting the dreaded breading hands. Pounding the chicken to a 1/2-inch-thick keeps the cooking time down and the chicken juicy and moist.
