Ricotta Spinach and Pork Cannelloni

I got inspired by this Italian Sausage Spinach Ricotta Cannelloni. It’s made using fresh pasta but I was too lazy to make some. I bought myself a box of Manicotti and used pork instead of Italian sausage. I also used fresh spinach. I have never ever been a fan of frozen spinach. It just never sounds right for me. I used Pecorino Romano Cheese. Much more tasty and salty than Parmesan. We ate everything. No left overs. I wish you a very pleasant weekend! Continue reading

Macaroni and Cheese with Ground Beef

You can also increase the amount of cheese if you want. I wish you a very pleasant weekend. Our day has started with SUN…..YES LOTS OF IT!

Simple Bolognese Lasagna with Peas

Simple Bolognese Lasagna with Peas myfavouritepastime.comThe first time I made this lasagna, I made 6 layers.

You can also omit the peas if you don’t fancy them. Our schools are closed today…SNOW DAY…but the sun is actually out and it’s much more pleasant now.  I wish you a pleasant day. I am planning to make lasagna for dinner tonight. Continue reading
