Don't know that I could pick one particular dish. Several folks I used to dive with kept telling me I should open a seafood place. Not sure whether it was the dish preparations or the fact that what I was cooking had been swimming or walking on the ocean floor earlier that day.

Folks also love the true BBQ I make.

If a person were going to hold a family reunion and asked each attendee to name the favorite signature dish that they make, everyone would have a different answer. When you are a good cook, there are lots of dishes that other folks want you to make. Marie Callender is known for her pies. But which one is her signature dish?

For my family, some want mac and cheese, others apple pie. Each person in my life has their own idea of what is my signature dish. This weekend I have been asked to make a large pan of mac and cheese. The family is getting together again in support of my daughter. But there is one person who wants that mile high apple pie. I will surprise her and make the pie also. After all, the party is for her.

Not sure it's a signature dish, but I often to to the Marcella Hazan recipe for "Tomato Sauce No.1 when I have people stop by unexpectedly, or I just don't know what to and I want to whip up something for them. It is great and everyone loves it. Very simple.
8 oz. can tomato sauce (no salt added)
15 oz. can diced tomatoes (no salt added) 2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. olive oil 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1/3 cup finely chopped carrot
1/3 cup finely chopped celery

Heat olive oil in a saute pan on med heat. Add chopped onions and cook until just translucent, not brown. Add carrots and celery and cook for one minute or so. Add tomatoes and sauce, the salt and the cinnamon and cook a a gentle simmer, partly covered for 30 mins. Stir from time to time.

I serve it over penne, but any pasta will do.This makes 3 generous servings, but is easily multiplied for more people.
