Sunday Dinner - 8/9/09

So it's been a SUPER HOT day here and we almost ended up BBQing hamburgers for dinner instead of a new recipe but Chuck convinced me to continue on with our new recipes. Plus we had to turn the oven on anyways because I needed to make a bundt cake for dinner at my Seesters tomorrow. She claims she's not a fan of home made cakes but I'm determined to change her mind with my Bundt Cake recipe! So we did make a new recipe and I'm so happy we did. Even with the heat it was so worth it!!

So........for our Sunday night new recipe dinner we did an Italian Bow Tie Pasta Bake :-)


8 ounces Bow Tie Pasta
1 lb ground beef
2 Cups Marinara Sauce
1 Packet Italian Seasoning
Mozzarella Cheese

First you need to boil the noodles and brown the ground beef. While the noodles are cooking and the meat browning pour the marinara sauce and the packet of Italian Seasoning into a bowl and mix together. Drain the meat and the noodles than add to the mixture!

Then pour the noodle/meat mixture into a 2 quart casserole dish!

Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese over the top of the noodle/meat mixture....

Put it in the oven at 400 degrees and bake for 15-20 minutes, until cheese melted.
We also decided to have some homemade garlic cheese bread. We got a loaf of sourdough bread from Safeway, cut it in half and spread our homemade garlic butter onto the top, then sprinkled mozzarella cheese on that!

The Finished Product!! It looks and smells so GOOD!!

We kept it as light as we could tonight with just the pasta bake and the garlic cheese bread! It was really delicious. It was almost like spaghetti with an extra kick of flavor from the Italian Seasoning :-) And super easy! We are definitely making this one a keeper in the recipe box!

Now I am off to watch the movie Grandma's Boy for Sunday night movie night! It's such a dumb movie but we love it! And since we watched Role Models last night we are sticking to our stupid movie weekend :-) Later this week we are watching the Soloist!!
Back to work tomorrow...I wish weekends for 5 days and workweeks were only 2 days! I never have enough time in the weekend. I didn't get to scrap or sew this weekend :-(
Happy Sunday Everyone!
