I just made breakfast. Not very healthy, but very good.
Slightly less than footlong Ciabatta bread. Divide into two parts so that you get a bottom and a top.
Butter it well. Next, sprinkle on some oregano and some garlic powder.
Then take an average size mozzarella cheese and cut it in average size slices.
Put said slices on the sandwiches. You should need about six of the bigger slices to cover both sandwiches.
After that, you cut up a bunch of sweet pea tomatoes in half or such. They're really really tiny.
If you use bigger tomatoes, cut them in more parts.
ANYWAY. Put those tomato slices on the mozzarella, and then you put some liquid butter on top of it all so that it will melt and run down to make a good crust on the bread.
Put it all in a 200 degrees (Celsius) oven for ten minutes or slightly less. Enjoy! I just did

Spaghetti, and I keep mine pretty basic, but spicy:
1 can of whole tomatoes or 2 large fresh tomatoes diced
2 small cans of tomato paste
1 medium can of tomato sauce (make sure its 100% tomatoes, no salt or anything added)
1.5 fingers of Hot Italian sausage (optional, and mainly for taste)
Red wine of your choice (or red wine vinegar)
Freshly grated parmesan cheese
Salt + black pepper to taste
Dash of crushed red pepper
Generous amount of basil (fresh or dried)
1 bay leaf (fresh or dried)
Italian seasoning (or fresh/dried oregano, thyme, rosemary, majoram)
2 shallot cloves finely chopped, or similar amount of chopped onion
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
Dice tomatoes & add them into a pot, along with the tomato paste & sauce. Put heat on medium. Then, add a little olive oil to a skillet. Cook sausage in skillet, breaking it up as you do. Add in shallots & garlic as it cooks. When garlic browns & sausage is cooked through, add it all into the pot with the sauce. Add in all of your seasonings & herbs, a little olive oil, and some red wine to taste. Stir it all together & and break up sausage more as needed. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for at least 20 minutes (an hour is ideal). Add in more red wine if it gets too thick.
Meanwhile, boil a large pot of water for the pasta and add a dash of salt when it begins to boil. Add pasta when water is at rolling boil and cook for 3-5 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and then serve with the sauce and freshly grated parmesan.

I made an interesting pasta dish yesterday: a layer of macaroni, a layer of spinach, a layer of scrambled eggs, a thick layer of cheese sauce, grated cheese on top. Everything cooked and still warm. Grilled for 5 min to get a nice cheese crust.
That's one recipe I'm not going to alter in any way!
