Hit me with your best Pasta dish

Hi all chefs and sous chefs!

I searched quickly and didn't find a thread with classic pasta dishes summed up in one, so I figured why not create one!

So, from Carbonara to Napolitana....

Let's hear them!

Try using advanced search if you get too many results from the regular search feature. Here's the original thread:

What is your favorite pasta sauce?

hi Bam, this is my favorite.

These days it's a recipe I got from urmaniac called Bucattini Amatriciana, one of the very typical pasta dishes Roma style. You can also substitute bucattini (sort of a long macaroni, or spaghetti with a hole in the middle) with regular spaghetti. It is very simple to prepare and absolutely delicious!!

for 2 people
about 50gs/2oz of bacon, crispily cooked and crumbled
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped or minced
1/2 onion, finely chopped or minced
extra virgine olive oil
5 ripe tomatoes, diced (if prefered, peeled) or 1 tin of peeled tomatoes(mush them up in small pieces)
salt
black pepper, or if you like it spicy, red crushed pepper
160g-200g/6-7oz of dry pasta (bucattini or spaghetti)
freshly grated parmigiano, or if available, aged pecorino romano

In a skillet saut&#232; onion and garlic in a sufficient amount of olive oil. When they are well cooked, add the crumbled bacon and tomatoes, season with salt and pepper (or red peper). Bring to boil and cook for several minutes until the flavours are well blended and some of the extra liquid is evaporated.
Meanwhile cook the pasta al dente, and drain
Toss the tomato mixture together with the pasta, serve with plenty of freshly grated cheese.

Hi, just thought I'd share, this is a lasagna recipe my dad used that I've altered a bit over the years...
Dads (and Debs) Lasagna
cooked lasagna noodles
2 lbs hamb meat
pepperoni (sliced but not as thin as sandwich meat)
mozzarella, shredded
mushrooms, sliced
ricotta cheese
pasta sauce, 2 jars or equivalent homemade

1. fry up hamb, season a bit to your taste. place in layer along bottom of a really deep roaster or dutch oven.
2. pour some sauce over it, then layer some noodles over it, then coat with some more sauce. Hit all parts, don't want it to dry out.
3. pour and spread tub of ricotta over this, evenly to all edges. Over this add sliced mushrooms.
4. layer of sauce, noodles, and sauce again.
5. place layer of sliced pepperoni, put a layer of sauce, then noodles, then sauce again. (the sauce is important, sounds like alot but it takes awhile to heat up something this thick and you don't want to dry out the edges of the noodles).
6. place a layer of shredded mozarella, I sometimes add other cheeses that I have lying around, i.e. chedder, parm, monteray jack... whatever make it your own.
7. heat in 350 degree oven for 45 min or until heated through.
Makes a HUGE lasagna, easily feeds 6.

I often make two smaller and freeze one, got in habit when I had an elderly neighbour living below me. I couldn't eat a whole one in a week, and she loved it (gave her something homemade instead of from M & M's meatshop for once).
I am always open to suggestions, if someone has an idea to alter, rest assured it will probibly be tried out eventually, tried alot of stuff with this recipe, ricotta is just not something that would have occured to my dad, and I'm not fussed on cream cheese in lasagna.
