Goodfellas Linguine with Tomato Sauce; Green Salad
      11/28/06 01:26 PM

This is from Eating Well Is The Best Revenge by Marian Burros, copyright 1995. It's fast, it's good, and it has a *lot* of Soluble Fiber.

The most interesting part of this menu, though, is the salad dressing. Now, green salads are problematic for many IBSers and oil-based salad dressings even more so. This salad dressing is delicious and less than half oil which is better than the 2/3rds or more oil that make up most oil-based salad dressing. Furthermore, only 2 teaspoons of oil thoroughly dresses 4 cups of greens - the secret is the added punch of flavor from the balsamic vinegar and soy sauce, plus tossing from the bottom up in a large bowl to get good coverage.

Even if you cannot handle raw green salads, this dressing would be good on a salad of cold cooked vegetables, too.

The recipe calls for fresh linguine or other pasta. I don't like fresh pasta - the kind in the refrigerator case at the grocery store - so I substitute dried pasta. When using dried, get the pasta water boiling before you start on the sauce. If you decide to use fresh, be sure to read the label checking for egg yolks.

Goodfellas Linguine with Tomato Sauce
(So called because the author whipped it together after seeing the movie Goodfellas one night.)
Yield: 2 servings

12 ounces (3/4 pound) fresh linguine or other fresh pasta
1 clove garlic
1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 of a 28- or 29-ounce can no-salt added tomato puree (I use the kind with salt)
6 Tablespoons dry red wine
1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, to yield 1/2 cup coarsely grated {I omit this; you could use non-dairy cheese}

1. Bring the water to boil for the linguine.

2. Mince the garlic and cook in hot oil in a deep saucepan for about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato puree and wine; cover and simmer.

3. Cook the pasta.

4. Grate the cheese, if using.

5. Drain the pasta.

6. Serve sauce over the linguine and pass the cheese.


Green Salad
Yield: 2 servings

4 ounces (1/4 pound) assorted salad greens (about 4 cups packed)
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce {I use regular soy sauce and increase to 1 teaspoon}

1. Wash and dry the greens, and break into bite-size pieces.

2. Whisk the oil, vinegar, and soy sauce in a serving bowl. Add the greens and toss to coat well.


Approximate Nutrition Information per Serving (Note that this is for the entire menu - pasta and salad - and if you omit the chesse both the calories and the fat go down):

885 calories; 15 grams fat; 10 milligrams cholesterol; 590 milligrams sodium; 30 grams protein; 150 grams carbohydrate

This means 135 calories from fat which means 15% of calories from fat.
