You guys are the pips with all these recipe ideas for Taxi. Going to borrow some myself and note down others to add to the menu list of ones I already sometimes make.

Good to know! Do you do Thai food? I have one noodle recipe with 30 Thai bird peppers in it, though some friends have said that it was a bit inflammatory to their mouths.

How about:

Sesame noodles or Asian noodle salad
Chicken pork beef or shrimp lo mein ( I add more veggies than meats)
Beef stroganoff

Egg Fettuccine With Butter, Gruyere and Toasted Walnuts

Coarse salt to taste
12 ounces egg fettuccine
6 ounces aged Gruyere cheese (without rinds), coarsely shredded
2 tablespoons butter
2 ounces walnuts, toasted and chopped
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese for serving (optional)

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and the pasta and cook until al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, remove 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water and set it aside. Drain the pasta quickly in a colander. Be careful not to overcook.

Quickly put the drained pot back onto the burner over medium heat. Working quickly, return the pasta to the pot. Add the reserved 1/4 cup cooking water (or more if the mixture seems too dry), Gruyere and butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the cheese and butter are melted.

Remove from the heat and stir in the walnuts. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve in warm bowls with additional salt and pepper and a bit of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano atop each bowl.

Makes 4 servings

We really like this one. Had forgotten about it untill a couple months back, but refound it and won't forget again.

Orecchiette with Sausage and Sage Brown Butter

2 Tbsp unsalted butter
8 ounces Italian spicy sausage, casings removed
Leaves from 2 sprigs fresh sage, thinly sliced
8 ounces orecchiette pasta
Kosher salt for the pasta water, plus more to taste
1/2 cup grated pecorino cheese
Freshly ground black pepper, to tast

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat.

Set a medium sauté pan with high sides over medium-high heat and add half of the butter. When the butter is foamy and turns a light golden brown, add the sausage and cook until it’s well browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the sage, stir to combine, remove the pan from the heat, and set aside.

Add the orecchiette and a generous pinch of salt to the boiling water. Cook until the pasta is al dente, stirring frequently. Check the cooking time recommendations on the package. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta cooking water, then drain the orecchiette.

Set the pan with the browned sausage over medium heat and add the pasta. Stir to combine, scraping up any browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Add the reserved pasta water, starting with 1/4 cup, then 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring until a sauce begins to form.

Reserve 1 Tbsp of the pecorino cheese and add the rest to the pasta. Add the remaining butter and stir to combine. Keep adding more of the reserved pasta water as needed until the sauce emulsifies into a creamy sauce that clings to the pasta. Season with black pepper and taste, adding additional salt if needed.

Divide the pasta evenly between 2 warmed plates. Garnish with the reserved pecorino and serve.

Fast and inexpensive Clams/Tuna with linguini.

This makes two servings.

2T butter or EVOO
Lots of minced garlic
1 can of chopped clams or solid pack tuna with liquid.
A splash of white wine or lemon juice.
A few grinds of black pepper
A big pinch of red pepper flakes.
Chopped parsley if you have it, a handful of frozen peas if you don't.

2 servings of linguine cooked according to your liking.

Grated parmesan or romano cheese.

Not really a recipe but hot pasta tossed with any or all of the following: a beaten egg, a little cream or milk, grated cheese, a knob of butter and several grinds of black pepper.

Pasta sauce with no tomatoes I have unfortunately discovered that cooked tomatoes make my arthritis worse, even in small amounts. Any suggestions for pasta sauces that don't have tomatoes? So far, I can think of four. [LIST=1] [*]Fettucine Alfredo [*]Pasta carbonara [*]Kayelle's clams with linguine [*]Dragon Lady sesame noodles [/LIST] 3 stars 1 reviews
