My recipes

here are a few good recipes that I use for some awesome Italian cooking. They are family favorites! These would make for a great stay in valentine dinner with loved ones.

Recipe for: Chicken Cutlet’s
To prepare: heat canola oil, about a ½ cup or more in a deep pan. You want the chicken to be covered almost completely by oil. I like to add about ¼ cup of olive oil as well.
4 chicken breast
2 cups bread crumbs (store bought or homemade)
¼ cup of grated parm
1 c flour
3 eggs
Salt and pepper

On a cutting board lay down either saran wrap or wax paper. Butterfly the chicken breast and then pound each until thin. You can make them as thin as you want or leave them butterflied.
Set up the dredging station. Flour, eggs add some parm into eggs if you like, then breadcrumbs and ¼ cup of parm all on separate dishes. Dip breast in flour then egg mix and then the bread crumb mix. Test the oil if ready set the breast in just so the oil almost covers it.  Cook until golden brown on each side. Lay on play with paper towels to drain excess oil.
 Recipe for: Vodka alla Penne
To prepare: I do not like vodka so I make this recipe without it. Great for the kids J
1 small onion chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
Salt and pepper to taste
I large(28Oz) can crushed tomatoes
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp basil(dry) mash in your fingers before adding to pan.
1 pound penne pasta
1 cup heavy cream

Fill large pot with water and bring to boil for noodles
Heat about 2 tbsp of olive oil in a saucepan
Add onion, cook until soft. Then add in garlic,basil, and S&P cook one minute and then add tomatoes, and sugar.
Cook for about a half hour.
When the noodles are done begin beating 1 cup heavy cream until stiff peaks form. So it’s the consistency of whip cream but thick.
Drain noodles, poor into a large serving bowl. Then add cream to the red sauce, mix and poor over pasta.
I serve this often with my Chicken cutlet recipe.
