Last night, I took a cue from Healthy Cooking magazine and decided to make their "pizza pepperoni pasta," with my own twist, of course. I browned ground beef with onion, then mixed in one jar (24 oz) pre-made pasta sauce, 1/2 tsp. worcestershire, 1/2 tsp. oregano, 1/2 tsp. basil, 1 tsp. red pepper, and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. I poured the mixture over 3 cups of whole wheat rotini (sprinkled with parmesan) in a 9x13 pan, then popped it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes.
That, peeps, is a gratuitous oven shot. Pasta on the right with a little store-bought garlic texas toast on the left. Oh! I forgot to mention that the pasta is topped with turkey pepperoni and mozzarella. Hence the pizza pepperoni pasta name, I suppose!
If I make this again, I'll definitely mix some spinach into the dish to get my vegetables for the evening. But overall, very tasty and definitely a keeper!
And now, the moment we've ALL been waiting for:
TA DA! Aren't they GORGEOUS?! Charles David makes a hot shoe, does he not? I just got these on Tuesday and I can't get enough. They're super comfortable because of all of the straps, and the color is perfection. *sigh*
I have some tasty treats in store for the weekend, so make like Arnie:
Snuggle in and get ready!
