These family-style meals (not just a recipie for part of a meal!) have been created by Me over the years. I've worked in several restaurants, including under My Uncle, who has owned award-winning pizza shops here in Chicago for over 20 years (Chicago pizza is the best! New York's is like cardboard!). Also, My Mother owned a well-known small diner She had inherited from Her Father.

These meals are not low-fat, low-cholesterol, sodium-restricted, vegan/vegetarian or anything like that, so please adjust to your family's needs. However, I can guarantee your children will eat almost everything as presented, as long as you don't tell them what's inside *g*. They require little know-how too! And you can impress your significant other at the same time! - I snagged My Husband this way!

Each meal serves about four, with a guarantee of second helpings :) Also, you may notice many of them have a lean on the Italian way of doing things. It is My preference, so again, adjust to your own needs.
