Tonight I was looking to try something different for dinner. I’m getting sick of the same old, same old. Especially with JM working longer hours for the next month and a bit, I find it has been quite hard finding something to just satisfy one… so I keep turning to easy, but yet unhealthy things like Hungry Man dinners, Perogies, Pizza… JUNK!!
I currently have a Pasta Pie in the oven. I found the recipe last night, and it sounded sooooo yummy. I’ll have to report back on how it turned out. Here is the recipe for anyone who is interested….
| Combine first 4 ingredients in medium bowl. Turn into greased 9 inch (22 cm) pie plate. Press into bottom and up side of pie plate.
Spread cottage cheese evenly over pasta mixture.
Scramble-fry ground beef, onion and green pepper in large non-stick frying pan on medium for about 10 minutes until beef is no longer pink. Drain.
Add next 7 ingredients. Stir. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, uncovered, for about 15 minutes until reduced and thickened. Spread evenly over cottage cheese. Cover with foil. Place on baking sheet. Bake in 350°F (175°C) oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil.
Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes until bubbling and golden. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into 6 wedges.
