    The full list of previous winners, recipes and chosen ingredients can be found here.

    A Reminder of the"Rules" (revised May 2017)
    You must post up the recipe here on CookingBites during the time frame of the competition (no screenshots of or links to recipes on other sites other than crediting is permitted).
    • The recipe must contain the ingredient specified in the challenge.
    • The recipe must have the 'recipe' prefix and the 'CookingBites recipe challenge' tag. It should also have the correct normal tags so the recipe below would have the 'chicken' and 'lemons' tags at a minimum.

    • The recipe must be linked to in this thread to indicate participation in the current recipe challenge.
    • (New) Cooking the recipe is optional, though it is encouraged.
    • (New) Photographs are optional, but encouraged.
    • To include everyone in any challenge, a suitable vegetarian/vegan/allergy free/intolerance free substitution will be permitted if the challenge ingredient is something a participant can not or does not eat, for whatever reason. What is permitted is up to the current challenge judge to decide on.
    • (New) In the event that an ingredient is unavailable regionally, substitutions should be agreed with the judge.
    • The judge's (or site owner's) decision is final and the new winner will select the next ingredient and the time frame...
    • And finally, as always, in the event of any dispute the site owner has the final say.

    Spinach garlic pasta with Marsala, sweet onion, garlic sauce
    2017-09-30 19.10.32.jpg

    http://www.cookingbites.com/threads...-with-marsala-sweet-onion-garlic-sauce.13291/

    We love both of these spinach pasta dishes (please note I reduced the garlic by half in the leek/guanciale recipe, it would have overwhelmed). This recipe is a very, very long time favorite, probably going on 20 years. We often just have this as a meal, but it can also be used as a side for chicken, veal or pork cutlets. Also, this dough freezes well. Just wrap it well in plastic wrap, place in a baggy and freeze. Don't try and shape then freeze, it gets very brittle and breaks.

    I love pasta. I don't make it homemade, but I do cook with it all the time. I know "spaghetti" isn't anything unique, but its one of my favorite meals. I think this is what I will make on SUN.
