I'll be the first to admit it: I am not much of a cook. Cooking isn't something I enjoy, and for me, the quicker the meal prep, the better. My dad used to say, when I cooked at home, that the kitchen was my Betty Crocker Proving Ground. :)
And I'm a messy cook. I use every bowl, pan, plate, and spoon I own when I get into the kitchen.
Yesterday, I was prepping some food to take to a friend who had recently suffered a bereavement and had lots of family in town, so my kitchen looked like culinary Chernobyl.
I made a pasta bake, a dish so easy it barely needs a recipe...my favorite kind! So, here's my recipe for Easy Pasta Bake:
1 lb Italian Sausage
1 box Pasta Noodles (I use Rotini)
1 jar Pasta Sauce
1 pkg. Kraft Shredded Italian Blend Cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan and Romano Cheese
Brown and drain the sausage. Boil the noodles as per the box instructions for al dente pasta and drain. In a big bowl, mix the sausage, noodles, pasta sauce, half the shredded cheese, and half the grated cheese. Dump into a baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheeses over the top. Spray a piece of aluminum foil with non-stick spray and cover the dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, uncover and bake 10 additional minutes or until the cheese on top begins to brown slightly.
So, are you a messy cook or a neat cook? Do you like cooking?
