ITALIAN Shit I've Cooked Lately

Recommended Posts

Although it's a generic chain, I always loved the Rigatoni D from Maggiano's growing up.  Wanted to see if I could recreate it and I'll be damned if they don't just have the recipe on their website...

So, really can't take any credit for this one as I pretty much just followed the recipe to a T.  But it did turn out great and tasted as good, maybe even a little better, than what I remember from the restaurant.  Shit's got crack in it.

Side note: I really hate cooking like that.  Following a recipe to a T feels much more like science than art that anyone who can read can do, and that's just not enjoyable to me.  But anyway, here's the end result...

There's plenty of people who can read that would fuck that recipe up real good.  Because you know how to cook, is why you can replicate it well.  Looks good...

Yeah, I suppose you're right.  I still much prefer to wing it and eyeball and improvise and estimate and shoot from the hip and tweak things to my liking when I cook.

First time making ravioli or any scratch pasta for that matter. Filling was sausage, spinach and cheese. Won’t be the last because it’s really not that hard and fantastic.

Did you see his brisket?  He ain't one-upping us.  8-)

Haha yeah but he fucked the delivery up by not posting pics of it from his boat.  He could post a bowl of kraft mac and cheese in this thread from his boat and it will look fantastic.

Have had Sunday gravy simmering since 11 am.  Just meatballs as meat — Italian sweet sausage and ground beef from central market.

So I see a lot of variations of Italian meat sauce, and a lot of variations of Bolognese.  But what sets the two apart?  Is it cream?  A mirepoix?  The meat (beef v. pork and/or veal)?

Decided to recreate one of my all time greatest Italian restaurant dishes tonight. RPM Italian Chicago spicy squid ink crab pasta. Tried recreating on my own a few times with moderate success. Finally found recipe thank god. Personally, This is a top 5 dish for a number of reason. Had to sub on jalapeño for Fresno chili peppers and added a small lobster tail on top, but still was a crazy good dinner. Pasta easily available on Amazon.
