Yay! A post!
I appreciate everyone being so patient with me. I can’t guarantee that this will be the beginning of more routine posting, but I’m hoping I’ll have some inspiration. We’ve got quite a yummy meal plan this week, and you won’t believe what’s making an appearance…
Yes, it’s true.
I’m trying out a new thing. Meat twice a week at home. We’ll see how it goes this week, as I’m already dreading dealing with the chicken that we bought today. Ugg.
Tonight I made Baked Ziti for the first time. I used a recipe I found here. We both enjoyed it, Hubby really loved it, so that’s a good sign.
1 package ziti – I used a gluten free brown rice ziti
28 oz can crushed tomatoes
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 package frozen spinach, thawed
1 t oregano
2 T basil
salt and pepper
8 oz fat free ricotta
1/4 cup parmesan
2 cups mozzarella
EVOO for baking dish
Preheat oven to 375degrees
Start by following the directions to cook your pasta al dente. Rinse, drain, return to pot.
In a smaller saucepan, add olive oil and garlic. Saute for a few moments, then add spinach, salt/pepper, tomatoes, and spices.
Add sauce to the pasta pot, mix with pasta. Add half of the mozzarella, the parmesan and ricotta. Stir.
Pour into a pan that you have prepped with oil.
Bake for 30 minutes.
