Stop just about anybody walking along the tree-shaded lanes of Jermyn, and ask them about Mary Marrara. Not only will they very likely know who she is, but they’ll keep you standing there for a while, as they talk about all the things Marrara does for others. All of that is why Marrara will be honored by the Scranton Chapter of UNICO as the 2016 UNICAN of the Year. The award will be presented at the

charity ball, the chapter’s annual fundraiser, which be held on Saturday, March 4, at Genetti Manor, 1505 Main Ave. in Dickson City and is open to the public. The Poets will provide entertainment.

its. Emphasis on the word “many.” The more she volunteered, the more the people running the organizations realized her unique combination of people skills and organizational savvy, officials said. Soon she was being asked to serve on the boards of these organizations. “I know of no other individual who better exemplifies UNICO’s motto of ‘service above self’ than Mary Marrara,” James A. Baress, president of the Scranton chapter, said. “She has done and continues to do so much, not only within our Scranton chapter in raising money for the numerous charities and scholarships that we support, and in her active volunteerism and unwavering dedication, but also within the community at large, a lot of which, by the way, is done behind the scenes. Mary’s receiving this prestigious award is a well-deserved honor and a fitting tribute to her many years of selfless service.” Saint Joseph’s Center was one of her first charities. She serves on several boards of The Wright Center and cochairs the Wonderful Women Program and The Wright Center Health Fair. Mary serves on the boards of The American Red Cross, NEPA Philharmonic League, LaFesta Italiana and UNICO Scranton Chapter. She serves on the committee for the Jim Minicozzi 5K race, Jermyn Lions Club and advisory boards for Meals on Please see UNICAN, Page 7

From Helen’s Kitchen RED PEPPER HUMMUS 1 red bell pepper 2-1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon tahini 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin 1 (19-ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained 1 garlic clove, quartered Preheat broiler. Cut bell pepper in half, lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil 10 minutes or until blackened. Place in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 10 minutes; then peel the bell peppers. Place bell pepper and remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Note: You can prepare this dip up to three days in advance and refrigerate in an airtight container. Serve with pita wedges and bell pepper strips. Yield: 6 servings. RIGATONI PASTA PIE 1 pound rigatoni pasta 1 pound ground beef 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 small jar of spaghetti sauce Cooking spray Salt, to taste 1 cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated 2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated 4-ounces cream cheese 15-ounces ricotta cheese 2 eggs 1 teaspoon basil 1 teaspoon oregano 1 cup onion Boil pasta according to package instructions. Cook until pasta is still very firm (avoid stirring the rigatoni so they do not fall apart). Once done, drain and run cold water over the pasta to cool. You can add a little bit of oil if they start to stick together. Set aside. Next, brown the ground beef and drain excess grease. Add chopped onion and garlic; cook for about 5 minutes. Add cream cheese and stir until melted. Then add the spaghetti sauce. Next, in a small mixing bowl, mix together the ricotta, Parmesan, basil, oregano and 2 eggs until smooth. Set aside.

Lightly spray the bottom of a spring form pan with cooking spray. Tightly pack pasta into the pan, standing each piece on end. Put a zip lock bag inside a tall glass and fill the bag with the cheese mixture. Close the bag and snip the corner of the bag and pipe a small amount into each noodle. After piping, pour the red sauce over the whole top and push down as much as possible. Top with 2 cups of mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes and then broil until the cheese turns bubbly. Yield: 8 to 10 servings. CRISPY PESTO CHICKEN (Requested by one of our readers.) 1/3 cup ricotta cheese 1/3 cup pesto 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese Freshly ground pepper 2 chicken breast halves with bones and skin 3 tablespoons olive oil 1/4 cup pesto Combine ricotta, pesto and Parmesan in a small bowl; season with pepper to taste. Carefully slide your fingers under skin of the breast separating it from the flesh to form a pocket. Leave the skin attached along one side and at one end so the stuffing will be enclosed. Push the cheese and pesto mixture into pockets you have created. Brush the surface of the chicken with olive oil. Place breasts in a small baking dish and bake at 350º for 40 minutes. Remove pan from oven and brush surface of chicken with remaining 1/4 cup of pesto. Return to oven for additional 15 minutes. Let chicken rest 5 minutes at room temperature before serving. Yield: 2 servings. GARLIC POTATO CASSEROLE (Great served with the pesto chicken above.) 8 potatoes, scrubbed 6 cloves garlic, peeled 2 cups heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg Cut potatoes into thin slices and place in a heavy-bottom pan.
