My family has been so supportive of this blog and my cooking journey it has been fun to talk to them about everything I have cooked. My sister in law recently went to Kansas and brought this back for me.
She knows me so well :). She shares a love for cooking with me and we have decided to do a night of chopped (like the food network show). We will be competing against each other, so stay posted for a fun post about that.
I have a love hate relationship with lasagna. It is delicious but takes so long to make. This was the perfect alternative it was so fast. It is on page 194 of the Dinnertime Pioneer Woman Cookbook

The recipe calls for farfalle pasta and I am using mini farfalle because let’s face it, it’s adorable.
In a skillet start browning a pound of ground beef in garlic, salt and pepper. Drain the grease off and add a jar of marinara sauce and a tbsp of Italian seasoning. The interesting thing about this recipe is it has some sour cream instead of ricotta. This made a nice creaminess. Then you just add the pasta and some fresh mozzarella, which of course I can’t find in my small town.Mix this all together and that’s it. So easy!!
I’m also getting so much more organized compared to one of my first posts.
If you put the ingredients away right after you use them cooking goes much easier and cleaner. What do you guys do to stay organized and clean when cooking?
I just made some quick grilled corn on the side. Of course I had to put it in a Pioneer Woman bowl. I love her line, check them out with this link.Pioneer Woman Bowls
