I love a good minestrone soup. Basically, take a large pot, and put able 3 tablespoons of olive oil on the bottom. Toss in diced celery, carrots, garlic and onions. Cook until soft, and cover with water. Then you can basically throw in any veggie possible. Put in the veggies that take longer to cook in first, like potatoes. I like adding kidney beans or white beans, corn, kale or swiss chard, cabbage, and tomatoes. Use about two tablespoons full of tomato paste. Italian sausage goes really well (toss in with the diced veggies). Serve over a toasted piece of crusty Italian bread.
I also like a baked macaroni and cheese casserole. Cook about a pound of elbow pasta. Make a simple roux with a tablespoon of flour, melted butter, and a half cup of half and half. Melt a two ounces each of cheddar cheese, guyere, and monterey jack into the roux. pour over the pasta in a casserole. Add bread crumbs onto the top and bake in 300 F oven for about thirty minutes.
