I am having major cravings, MAJOR. And I’m not pregnant. I am craving pasta, cheese, bread and of course, chocolate which is nothing new! So I decided to make this for dinner! And it is of course as almost all of my recipes must be, EASY!
Speggetti Pie Ingredients:
1 lb speggetti
1 jar speggetti sauce ( I used preggo traditional, I’m a huge preggo fan when I don’t make my own sauce)
1lb of lean ground beef (about 3/4 of a pound would work, but my lovely shih tzu likes to have some hamburger so I make extra!)
1 small onion diced
1 lg garlic clove minced
3/4 package of shredded cheddar cheese
1 lg tub of part skim ricotta
ground black pepper
Fry up the hamburger and onion until browned. Meanwhile cook pasta and have sauce simmering as well as mix the ricotta in a large bowl adding all ingredients. Use parsley, basil and pepper to your liking, I load it!! Add meat to sauce and mix together. When pasta is cooked, drain and put back in pan, mix in the sauce mixture. Layer an 11 x 13 pan with half the speggetti mixture. On top of the speggetti add the whole ricotta mixture, flatting out with a spatula so it is smooth. Sprinkle with a little cheddar cheese. Top with the remaining speggetti mixture.
At this point the pup has been watching, she is very spoiled and always smells the cooking hamburger and is waiting patiently for her portion. Isn’t she cute! Anyways…back to the recipes!
2 cups of Bisquick Heart smart mix
3/4 cup skim milk
1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
ground black pepper, basil
Mix all ingredients together, I put a lot of the spices in but you can do it to your desired taste. Drop my rounded teaspoonfuls onto a cooking stone (or baking sheet) and cook at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes or until they look done. (you can see the final product pic above)
Grams Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Ingredients:
1 box of chocolate pudding mix (not instant, the kind you heat on the stove, please not, I accidentally bought the wrong kind this time, oops!)
1 pre-made pie crust (I used publix regrigerated, pillsbury is great too)
2 tbls of creamy peanut butter
whipped cream for topping (I used light canned whipped cream)
First you want to bake the pie crust and let it cool completely. When crust is ready make the pudding as directed. When it’s cooked, stir in the peanut butter until marblized. Cool and serve with whipped Cream. I won’t go into detail how I messed this up, at this point I had been cooking and ebaying all day so I was tired! BUT the pie was still delicious, it was just lumpy as I had to improvize! BUT it was chocolate and it was yummy! This is a pic, yours will look much smoother!
Very yummy dinner!
