Does anyone have any Italian recipe's they want to share?

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."

Garlic Chicken Faralle

16 oz. Farfalle (bowtie) pasta
1 c. heavy whipping cream
3-4 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
2 to 3 cloves garlic, crushed OR garlic salt
1 Tbsp. pepper (I just sprinkle in son pepper 1 Tbsp seemed way to much)
1/2 c. butter
1 lb. bacon, crumbled ( MOstly I just use 1/2 lb)
1 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
1 (12 oz) Lawry’s mesquite marinade with lime juice
In the crock pot cool chicken and bottle of marinade on low for 6-8 hours. Pull marinated chicken out of the juices, allow to cool a little bit, and shred (it just falls apart).(I pour some of the juices of the chicken so it's not dry and adds more flavor) Set this aside. About a half-hour before serving, boil the pasta. In a small saucepan, melt butter, add garlic, whipping cream, pepper, Parmesan cheese, and crumpled bacon. Whisk together on low heat for 3-4 minutes. In a large bowl, pour over cooked, drained pasta, add chicken and stir through. Sprinkle a little bit more shredded Parmesan cheese on top.

((this recipe is originally meant to be split between 2 13x9 in pans. I put it all in one to make a really thick lasagna))

meat mixture:
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 c chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 (14 oz) cans diced tomatoes
1 (12 oz) can tomato paste
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp pepper

cheese mixture:
4 c. cottage or ricotta cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. parmesan cheese
1 tbsp parsley
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 lb grated mozzarella, divided

1 (1lb) pkg lasagna noodles, cooked (if making it in one pan, you only need half)

Cook ground beef, onion, and garlic in large skillet until beef is browned. Drain. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, basil, oregano and pepper. Simmer 30 min, stirring occasionally.

Combine cottage cheese, eggs, parmesan, parsley, salt, and half the grated mozzarella.

Layer in pan(s), noodles, cheese, and meat 2 or 3 times. bake at 375* for 30 min. (if made ahead and refrigerated, bake 45m) Let stand 10 min, cut and serve.

This recipe is actually better the next day, so my mom usually makes the meat part ahead of time and refrigerates overnight and then assembles and cooks it the day we want to eat it.
