This has been the worst year for pests eating my dahlias! Now I have these beetles nibbling away:
On to a more tasty subject for humans...
I make this Pepperoni, Beef and Pasta Bake a few times a year and I always change it up a bit. Since I keep cooked ground beef in the freezer with celery and onions, this is an easy dish for me to make. I just thaw out a pound of the cooked ground beef mixture before I begin.
I don't use a recipe. You don't really need one. I will just tell you how I did it because I really HATE to see food on a blog that I want to make and they don't give me a clue as how it was made.
Just cook a pound of your favorite hearty pasta (al dente as it will be cooking for another 30 minutes in the oven). For two people this will make at least three meals. Layer the pasta with a tomato sauce (jarred spaghetti sauce is fine). I also used a yellow cheese sauce because we like that flavor. If you don't, just use 2 jars of spaghetti sauce. Layer the sauces, pasta, ground beef and pepperoni twice.
This time I had fresh summer squash that I sauteed with fresh Farmer's market onions and scattered it over the top. I also used a dozen of DH's Roma tomatoes on the top. I skinned,seeded and diced them first.
We had the two individual dishes for dinner and they were very good.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
