Reviewed Crispy Fried Rigatoni "Chips" Stuffed with Herbed Ricotta

Thursday, Apr 18, 2013 on Cooking Channel

"I am not sure what Dianna did wrong with these spectacular chips. Maybe she didn't cook the pasta first? Or enough? Who knows, but do not listen to her. These pasta chips have THE most satisfying crunch, on par or superior in texture to any factory made chip I've had. It really is a BRILLIANT method for making a snack. My filling? Ricotta, marscap"

"No jerky, no seeds, no problem. This was delicious, and a great side dish to our pasta and braciole arm. Something so bright and fibrous is kind of necessary with such a heavy meal, but this salad was so good I'd probably just dig in any time. The boyfriend is looking forward to this for lunch tomorrow, and I'm jealous that he grabbed the left o"

"Visually, this is spectacular. I wrapped my arm in prosciutto AND salami, and the meats were SOO crispy and delicious. I cooked the recipe closer to the way Nadia did on the show, so 400 degrees for 45 minutes covered, and then about 20 uncovered. The steak was just alright, if not leaning towards too chewy.

Out of chili oil and my only peppers on hand were Jalapenos, which were a bit mild. So I used my Jala's, a little extra sesame oil, and a couple tablespoons of garlic chili paste; added the heat I needed, and I didn"

"These were sooooo good. Really, I just forsake the idea of eating this with my hands, completely drenched my buns in the sauce, and shovled it into my anxiously awaiting mouth. Everyone loved them, even my picky eater mom (oooh...pancetta...weird....). I ate the leftovers over pasta the next day, and that was also phenominal.

Thanks again, N"

"My sister and 4 year old niece watched this episode with me, and demanded I make this lasagna. How can you say no to a four year old demanding lasagna? I made the broth from scratch, because there is nothing better than home made chicken soup. I did cheat on the noddles, buying the "No need to pre-boil!" stuff. This is an easy substitution, and"

"My boyfriend and I made this along with her pissed penne arabiata (Gotta love the cookbooks!) It felt like eating a gourmet meal while wearing flip flops and shorts. We loved the salad so much, we had another serving later that night when we felt peckish, and again the next day for lunch. I'm pretty sure we'd still be eating it now if the ingred"
