Pizza Pasta

28 Feb

So first off, apologies for the lack of posts recently. I’ve been out of town and spending exorbitant amounts of money on food. Second off, one of my followers has pointed out that I never post about anything green. This is very true, but I have a plan. Tomorrow is March 1st and I’m a very, very, very big fan of St. Patrick’s Day (I’m an Irish dancer, it’s a little non-negotiable), so in honor of this wonderful holiday, I am going to attempt to make as much green food during March as I can. Delicious recipes with green twists. If you have any recommendations, please let me know! I’d love to get some suggestions as I’ll have to get pretty creative.

Ok. Pizza pasta. This is probably not what you think it is. Unless you think it’s pasta with tomato sauce and cheese cooked on top- in which case it’s exactly what you think it is. It’s really very easy to make and prepare and it’s all the deliciousness of pizza but with the goodness of pasta. You can’t lose. My friend made this for me tonight and we wolfed a big bowl down so quickly you’d have thought we’d been starved for days.

Ingredients:

Pasta

Cheese

Tomato Sauce

1 onion

* I left off the quantities because we didn’t really measure anything out, I’ll explain in the instructions how to measure out what you’ll need but it’s kinda up to you

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.

2. Boil however much pasta you want and let simmer on low heat until your onion and cheese is prepared

3. While the pasta is boiling chop up the onion into little slices and and grate the cheese.

Pro tip 1: The amount of cheese always looks like WAY too much, but it’s almost never enough, so be generous. We grated a heaped plate of cheese and it just about enough for one dish of this (served 3 people generously).

4. Drain the pasta once everything is ready and pour into your oven-proof dish.

5. Sprinkle in the onions and mix up with the pasta.

6. Pour your sauce on top of the pasta, using just enough to pretty much cover the pasta

7. Add your cheese across the top, covering well.

8. Pop in the oven for 5 minutes or just long enough for the cheese to melt.

And that’s it. Take it out, serve it while it’s hot because it cools quickly. We sprinkled garlic powder over it for added heaven.

Gourmet Breakfast Grilled Cheese Style

24 Feb

Yes, another grilled cheese post. It’s about as creative as I get without a recipe. No, I didn’t eat it for my breakfast, it was more of lunch. And dinner, as a matter of fact, because at 11:50 pm I’m just realizing I haven’t had dinner yet. As I said, bad eating habits.

Anywho. This is the mother of all grilled cheese sandwiches in my opinion. It has everything I could possibly want in the world. Bread, butter, cheese, bacon, and eggs.

Ingredients:

2 slices of bread

Butter

1 slice of cheese

1 strip of bacon*

1 egg

* I used Irish bacon, also known rashers, which is a thicker and wider style bacon. If you’re using American bacon you might want to use 2 strips.

Instructions:

1. Butter 2 slices of bread on one side generously

2. Put one slice of bread butter side down in a pan and let it fry on medium heat

3. In another pan, put your bacon on medium-high heat and cook to desired crispness

4. Crack an egg and fry in a separate pan (or the bacon pan when the bacon is done), cook to desired egginess (over easy, over medium, over well etc.)

5. Place cheese on the slice of bread and allow to melt

6. Add your bacon and egg

7. Put on your other slice of bread, allow them to melt together a little and flip to cook the other side.

… Basically cook a grilled cheese but put bacon and eggs in the middle. Probably not the best if you’re counting calories and trying to avoid fried food, but it’s really delicious, so who cares?

Another thing I’ve learned: I cannot cook eggs. Doesn’t matter what kind, it’s never pretty. Exhibit a.
