    I am torn between steaks (buts it raining out) and Rich's Dish. My director's husband (who actually does all the cooking in the house) make this spaghtti sauce with bacon, parmesan cheese, and shrimp over pasta and its amazing. If there is actually a name for it, I don't know it, I've always called it Rich's dish. When I was pregnant he would make it for me all the time.

    I would love steaks, but feel bad having Dave out in the rain, so I may do the pasta.

    This makes a pretty big portion, as we use it for a few meals:

    28 oz can crushed tomatoes
    28 oz can pureed tomatoes
    3 cloves pressed garlic
    2 tbs sugar
    1/2 small onion
    dash of oregano, basil
    1/2 cup red wine
    6 oz bacon (can cook ahead of time or while working on recipe)
    1 lb shrimp (can cook ahead of time or while working on recipe)
    1 block parmesan cheese
    1 package thin spagehtti.

    Grate parmesan cheese. Sautee onions and garlice until golden; add tomato, basil, oregano, wine, sugar. In skillet cooked chopped bacon, scoop into sauce. Then add shrimp to pan, cook until almost done (this is just to prevent overcooking in sauce). Add to sauce. Add 2 cups of parmesan cheese and mix well.

    Cook pasta according to directions. When done, scoop pasta directly from stock pot into sauce; do not drain. Mix well. Top with remaining parmesan cheese.

    This dish is excellent with sauteed spinach in garlic. Spinach can be mixed into pasta dish as well.

    Enjoy! I typed this as I went, so I hope I didn't miss anything.
