Baked Pizza Spaghetti

 Spaghetti is tossed with pizza sauce, meats and cheeses, for the ultimate baked pasta.

Fall is in full force and the temperatures have dropped quickly. With all this cold and dreary weather, it seems like my body wants to go into hibernation mode. Naps, blankets, tea/hot cocoa and hearty foods. So casseroles like this one, are right up my alley this month. I love the ease of baked pastas. I love the crispy melty cheese on top, the tender pasta and hearty meat, all cooked in sauce. HEAVEN!! 

The kids absolutely love this "pizza-ghetti" as they liked to call it. Now that they are teenagers, I need something low cost but filling. They like to eat me out of a house and home. Super simple and very reminiscent of lasagna, this recipe is sure to give your family the fuel it needs to keep going during the colder months of the year!







Baked Pizza Spaghetti

12 oz uncooked spaghetti
1 lb  Italian pork sausage
2- 14 oz jars pizza sauce
3/4 cup diced pepperoni
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Fresh basil, if desired

  3. I'm almost afraid to make it because I KNOW that The Man will demand it all the time. Maybe I'll just start out with quadrupling the recipe and freezing some! Looks so good.

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

  These Lemon Crinkle Cookies are deliciously tart, not too sweet, and pillow-y soft.  I have so many wonderful holiday baking memories. It wasn't until I was older, that Mom actually let me help her with all the tons of baking she did. When I was little, I'd sit and watch her work, fascinated at how easy she made it look. When I moved out on my own, my holiday baking tradition became one of re creating the desserts of my childhood. I went many years not being able to spend Christmas with my family, so my tradition was a way to feel closer to my them. After my children were born, I had wonderful plans for holiday traditions. Baking cookies, while the snow was gently falling outside. My children, prim and proper, not making a single mess, decorating cookies until they looked like works of art. Sounds pleasant, doesn't it? My wake up call came when my son was two. The cookie dough had been chilled and we were set to roll, cut and decorate our cookies. That's when I almost

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

 A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer. When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right?? This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.
