This how I make my manicotti:

6 eggs
1 c milk
1/2 tsp salt
1-1/2 c flour

Mix together like pancake batter--doesn't matter if there are lumps. Cook on a greased griddle (or in a crepe pan) on one side only. You don't want them getting brown, you just want them to be set.

Fill with a mix of 1-1/2 c ricotta, 1/2 c romano 2 eggs, 1/2 T parsley, garlic, and 1/2 c grated mozarella cheese. You mix the filling in a bowl and spread some on each crepe. Roll up and place in a greased casserole dish. Top with 2 cups of your favorite sauce. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes.

While this isn't necessarily a bad thing (and I'm sure I will appreciate these when I graduate and don't have hours of time to cook) it isn't what I'm looking for now.


So what I'm asking is, will you share with me your recipes that take a long time and lots of prep?

Do you know anywhere I can find traditional from scratch recipes that will allow me to spend all day cooking?

Please and Thank You
Ha! Try a cassoulet or Julia Child's Bouef Bourguignon.

If you want to spend the day in the kitchen, put together a scandinavian smorgasbord with a cold, hot, and dessert table!

Eggrolls or wontons where you make the wrappers...

Apple strudel...

sausage...

filled pasta (tortellini, ravioli)

You can also look for older cookbooks that came out before microwave ovens and moms working outside the home.

Lasagna. If you really want to spend some time in the kitchen, make your sauce as well as your noodles from scratch. That should keep you busy

ravioli or calzones from scratch, from pasta/dough, to sauce, to the ricotta, and maybe even the sausage.
