Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until well browned on both sides.
Stir the sauce and 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese in the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with the mozzarella and remaining Parmesan cheese. Let stand for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve on a bed of cooked spaghetti noodles.
4 oz fresh mozzarella, drained and cut into 1/2-inch dice
2 to 3 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp drained capers
1 pinch kosher salt
1 pinch black pepper
Lay the baguette on a cutting board. Make a lengthwise cut down the middle, starting on the top of the loaf and cutting to but not through the bottom. (A serrated knife works best for cutting.) Gently pry open the loaf to make a V-shaped cavity.
Rub the sides of the cavity with the cut garlic. Arrange tomato slices down each side of the cavity, followed by the basil leaves.
Gently mix the cheese, olive oil, capers, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Spoon this mixture into the loaf, between the rows of tomato and basil. Cut the sandwich crosswise into 6-inch lengths and serve.

6 oz spaghetti, cooked
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 whole eggs, well beaten
3/4 cup (3 oz.) shredded parmesan cheese, divided
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup pasta sauce
1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
Toss spaghetti with olive oil in large bowl. Stir in eggs and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Pour spaghetti mixture into greased 10-inch pie plate; form into a crust.
Spoon Ricotta cheese over spaghetti crust. Top with pasta sauce. Bake in preheated 350 F oven for 25 minutes. Top with Mozzarella cheese. Bake 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Cool 10 minutes before cutting.
Crumble the blue cheese into the ground beef and add the minced scallions, tabasco, worcestershire, salt, pepper, and red pepper (if using). Mix lightly to combine. Let stand in the refrigerator for an hour or two so the flavors can blend.
Gently press the meat into patties. Broil, pan-fry, or grill over moderate coals to the desired degree of doneness. Serve on toasted hamburger buns.
