HI

I looked through the recipe index and couldn't find the one I wanted. I'm interested in the lasagna recipe from Tutto Italia. I had it last week and it was sooooo good.

Any ideas how to get the recipe?

Thanks, Cindy

I need it!

SO I was over on the Food Porn thread and I found something I need to try! Since we just got back a couple weeks ago I won't be able to try the real thing until maybe sometime next year (unless we win the lottery ). So I thought I would see if I could find the recipe here and whip it up. I don't see the recipe listed so I am requesting it if anyone one is traveling there anytime soon. PLEASE!

The picture is in this thread post #1085.
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....919687&page=73

She said in a later post (#1109) it was the Bucatini Gratinati--with Italian prosciutto ham, peas, and parmesan cheese from Tutto Italia.

If you could help me out I would be greatly appreciative.

What about just calling asking for the recipe. I'm still looking for the grand margarita recipe.

EDIT: I called and got the recipe, however, I'm not sure about the sweet and sour mix. I might have to call back and get clarification. I will post when I have it.

Salmon With Figs, Saba, And Watercress



SALMON WITH FIGS, SABA, AND WATERCRESS
David Pasternack Culinary demonstration, Epcot F & W Festival 2008
Serves four.

This dish calls for fresh figs rather than dry, and if you'd rather saute the salmon, you can throw the cut-up figs into the same pan.

2 tablespoons saba or top-quality balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for coating the salmon
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 bunches watercress, rinsed and spun dry
Four 6-ounce salmon fillets, skin on
8 ripe figs, halved

In a small bowl, whisk together the saba and the 1/2 cup olive oil, and season with about 1/2 teaspoon salt and a pinch of black pepper. Put the watercress in a mixing bowl, add some dressing, and toss to coat. Divide the salad among four plates.
Preheat a grill pan over a medium-high flame.
Rub the salmon fillets on both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place skin side down in the pan and cook until the edges of the fish begin to turn opaque, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the fillets and cook 1 minute more. Transfer them to the serving plates, skin side down, over the watercress.
Place the figs in the grill pan, moving them around gently until they begin to wilt, about 2 minutes. Arrange the figs on each serving plate (four halves per plate) and drizzle them with whatever saba vinaigrette remains in the mixing bowl. Finish with a sprinkling of salt and black pepper. Serve immediately.

Thanks! However, I need to know what they use for the sweet and sour mix. It makes a huge difference.

I thought the bar tender told me they use crystal light sweet and sour dehydrated powder mix, but I don't see that on crystallight.com

Any ideas on the mix?

Most restaurants order powdered sweet & sour mix from their suppliers. You can probably find it online or even in the liquor store. It's sometimes called sour mix or bar mix, and is made with lemon & lime juice.

I can buy sweet & sour mixes (different brands of powders) in our local grocery and liquor stores. You could also make your own.

Well the point was to replicate the drink...so I want to use exactly what they used.

Tutto Italia Lasagna al Forno

Thanks Tatania for the suggestion of whom to email for the lasagna recipe. I received an answering email from Laura Hays, Human Resources Manager for Tutto Italia within 2 1/2 hours with the recipe. It is a very long recipe with three different sauces and fresh pasta sheets. I will post the entire recipe as soon as I have more time.

Thanks again, Tatania. Cindy

PLEASE put that recipe on here when you can! I have been wanting that recipe since February, and when I e-mailed them about it, I was told they weren't giving out any of their recipes, yet.

Lasagna al Forna

Okay...here goes for the lasagna recipe. If I don't get it all on the first try, I will add the rest later in the same post #.

Tutto Italia Pomodoro Sauce

4 #1 cans imported plum tomatoes in sauce
1 large yellow onion diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 T kosher salt
2 t ground white pepper
6 leaves fresh basil, chopped

Crush tomatoes in a large bowl by squeezing them. Cook onions in olive oil until clear over medium heat in a heavy bottom 12 quart saucepan. Add garlic and cook until just fragrant.
Add crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then lower heat to simmer. Cook at least an hour, stirring occasionally. Add basil leaves. Remove from heat.

Tutto Italia Bolognese Sauce

1 yellow onion, diced
3 ribs celery, finely diced
1 carrot, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 T dried thyme leaves
2 bay leaves
1 pound ground beef
2 cup Tutto Italia Pomodoro Sauce
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 T kosher salt
2 t ground black pepper

In a heavy bottomed saucepan, over medium heat, cook onions, celery, carrots and garlic with olive oil until onions are clear and soft. Add the ground beef and cook thoroughly, breaking it up as much as possible. Add the dried herbs, Pomodoro sauce, wine, cream, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Cook at least one hour, stirring occasionally.

Tutto Italia Bechamel Sauce

1 stick unsalted butter
4 ounces all-purpose flour
2 quarts milk
1 t ground nutmeg
1 t ground white pepper
2 T kosher salt

In a heavy bottomed saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter. Once the butter is melt, add the flour, mixing together completely. Cook the mixture for at least one minute, stirring constantly. Add the milk to the mixture using a whisk. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to simmer. Season with nutmet, salt and pepper. Cook for at least one hour, stirring occasionally.

Lasgna al Forno

6 pasta sheets, precooked (13x9 size)
(I plan to use regular lasagna noodles, precooked)
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup Pomodoro Sauce
2 quarts Bechamel Sauce
3 quarts Bolognese Sauce
4 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

In a deep 13x9 pan, evenly spread the olive oil, then add the Pomodoro sauce, evenly spreading it across the bottom of the pan. Place a pasta sheet in the pan, centering it and firmly pressing it to the bottom. Place 2 cups of Bolognese Sauce in the pan and spread evenly using a spoon or rubber spatula. Sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese (I calculated 2/3 cups for each of the six layers). Place another pasta sheet on top, again pressing it down firmly. Add 1 cup of Bechamel Sauce on the pasta sheet, evenly spreading it around. Sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese. Repeat the process until all 6 layers are completed. On the final layer, add the mozzarella cheese.

Bake uncovered at 250 degrees for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes (or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees). Allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting. Top with hot Pomodoro Sauce and grated Parmesan cheese. Bom appetito!


My Note: Measurements for sauce in the list of ingredients seem to be too much. 2 quarts equal 8 cups of Bechamel Sauce for three layers, which uses 3 cups. And, 3 quarts equal 12 cups of Bolognese sauce and three layers uses 6 cups. ????

I also have the recipe for the Fresh Pasta. Does anyone want that recipe?

Cindy
