Tortellini Casserole Recipe

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Here is my Tortelleni Casserole Recipe that I had been asked about.

Tortellini Casserole
1 pound ground turkey
1 pound sweet Italian turkey sausage with casings removed
2 bags dried tortellini cooked according to package directions
2 (28 oz) cans traditional spaghetti sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup Parmesan cheese
Brown meats together and drain well. Pour hot water over them while in strainer to remove any grease that may be there. Mix meats and sauces in large bowl and set aside. Place a layer of meat sauce in a 9x13 baking dish, then a layer of cooked tortellini, followed by a layer of mozzarella and then Parmesan. Repeat these layers again ending with a layer of Parmesan on top . Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and dish is hot.

Happy New Year 2009

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

It's hard to believe that I've been doing this for over a year now. When I first started, it was just going to be for fun and a place to share my thoughts with the world. I have been thinking about it lately and since the DH got us a computer recently, I plan to post more often.
I am still learning my way around-how to post pictures, links, etc so please bare with me during this learning process.
As far as the family is concerned, all are doing good. Miss E is doing well in her kindergarten class and Miss N made the cheer leading team at the high school she attends. It's hard to believe she's in high school already. She's already looking at college-especially Va Tech and University of Virginia. (Personally, I hope she goes for Tech-I'm a huge Hokes fans!!!). the boys are just enjoying being little boys with their trucks, dinosaurs and all the things little boys like.
The dh and I are getting things in place for our move to Florida in May. We are so excited and I can't wait to go there. I've never even been to Florida so this will be an adventure for me of sorts.
My goals for the new year include ( I never did like "new year resolutions" they sound so formal)
1. Work on sample copy of organizing system book to show at sfows and to publishers. I am currently working on an organizing system book that will help people organize their homes, keep them clean with mininal effort and fuss on their parts.
2. Read more books by Christian authors. I read the Annie's People series by Beverly Lewis and loved them. I have some books that I have set aside but haven't started reading.
3. Find a pen pal so I can write long letters on pretty stationery. I hope to find one soon, I know someone who might be interested, so I may email her and see what she says.
4. Use my sewing machine more. I want to start making dresses for the girls and I to wear.
5. Wear skirts and dresses all the time. I still have some blue jeans but plan to convert them to skirts at the first chance I get. Right now I have on a denim skirt and a black shirt. Tomorrow I plan to wear my grey dress and black leggings.
6. Post my menu for the upcoming week by 11:00 pm on Friday night. That way people can get ideas from me.
7. Grow in my walk with God. I have let this slide so I really need to spend more time with Him and reading His word.
Blessings until next time
