 Here are the Roster details for this weeks Line up!

Ingredients for:

Marinara sauce



  • 3 fat Garlic cloves diced
  • ¼ cup diced Onions
  • 1 big can crushed Tomatoes
  • 1 fat tbsp Tomato Paste
  • ½ tsp Oregano
  • 1/3 cup chopped Basil
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • Tsp of S&P
  • 1/3 cup 3 Italian cheese Mix
  • 1 fat tbsp EVOO

The 4 Cheese Dip

  • ¼ cup 3 Italian cheese Mix
  • ½ container of Ricotta (sm)
  • 2 Fat Garlic cloves diced
  • 2 fat tbsp chopped Basil
  • Pinch S&P


Fried Pasta


  • 1 Package of 3 cheese tortellini (sm)
  • 1 Package of Double Brie Ravioli (sm)
  • 2 cups Milk
  • Tsp of S&P
  • 1 ½ cups Italian Breadcrumbs
  • 1 ½ cups Panko Crumbs
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1 fat Tbsp Basil
  • ½ Litre Canola Oil for frying



  1. Mix all ingredients for “The 4 cheese dip” together and place in the fridge to set
  2. In a med-high pot, add oil onion and garlic – let these work down about 5 minutes
  3. Add your tomato paste, S&P, and oregano and mix well – let this sit for 2-3 minutes
  4. Add crushed tomatoes and honey and stir well – let this sit on med-low heat for about 30 minutes
  5. While the sauce is coming together, boil and salt some water in a large pot, once boiling drop in your Tortellini (cook 4-6 minutes) and Ravioli (cook 3-4 minutes)
  6. Once the pasta is cooked, set aside on cutting board for the pasta to cool
  7. In one bowl add your milk, and in another bowl add your bread & panko crumbs, S&P, Parmesan, garlic powder, and Basil and Mix well
  8. Once the pasta is cool enough to handle, dip it into the milk well, then into the crumb mixture to coat – do this for all pasta until complete
  9. In 2 Large pots add your canola oil (Split) and turn on to high heat, let heat for about 4-5 minutes then drop in 1 tortellini to test – you want a golden-brown fry on the pasta. Takes about 2-3 minutes flipping a couple times to get a good brown on these – cook all pasta *in batches (DO NOT crowd the oil or you will not get an even cook)
    * two pots just make for faster frying & turn on your FAN it can get Smelly :S *light a candle
  10. While the pasta is frying, add your cheese and basil into your sauce for the final touch
  11. Put both sauces into bowls, and the pasta on a plate and ENJOY 😊

Not gonna lie…. these are Deadly!!!
My Grandma and Mother are visiting right now, and I got their Seals of approval!!!
