Nancy Kopas wrote to ask for a recipe I printed in Sept 2010. She loved it, but lost the recipe, so I am printing it so all can try, and enjoy.
12 green bell peppers
12 red sweet peppers
1 large onion
Boiling Water to cover
1 stalk of celery
2 cups apple cider vinegar
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons canning salt

Put vinegar and sugar in kettle. When hot, add other ingredients. Let come to a boil.

12-ounce package fettuccine noodles
1 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoon butter

1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cook noodles as directed on package. Drain and return to pan.
Oven medium low heat, heat noodles, cream, butter, salt and pepper and Parmesan. Toss well.
Serve, passing more Parmesan cheese for topping.
Linda's note: Nice served with Grilled Chicken Breasts and a Salad, or Broccoli.
FRIED POTATO CAKES
5 cups leftover mashed potatoes
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup butter
Combine mashed potatoes, eggs, flour, salt and pepper and mix well. Shape into small flat cakes, roll in bread crumbs. Fry in butter till golden on both sides.
Linda's note: You can roll in flour if you don't have bread crumbs. Also, oil can be used instead of butter.
