Yup!! 😋 All Corner Pieces Baked Pasta #Mtcookbook

You know those delectable crispy & chewy pieces of pasta around the edges of any baked pasta dish? This is a whole sheet pan of them. Brilliant!

I‘m going to crisp it up even more next time.

Tamra @ShelleyBooksie yes - I love the book, it‘s a favorite. I recommend checking it out of the library if you can to see if it‘s a fit for you. The recipe is easy; make your favorite red sauce pasta, pour onto sheet pan, dollop on ricotta, fresh mozzarella bits, & Parmesan cheese. Broil for 5-7 min. 3w

Gochujang for the win last night! (I used rice & added various veggies - not at all photogenic.)

This cookbook has the types of recipes I like, bold flavors & relatively easy.

Went with my stepdaughter to the B&N sale and made out like a bandit (she already put hers away.) Now I‘m introducing her to Silence if the Lambs.

Sticky chicken tonight! I will be adding 🌶️ 🌶️. 😋

Everything I‘ve made so far from this book has been easy & tasty.

Is anyone else off put by pink dinnerware? I don‘t know why, but it is unappetizing to me. Maybe reminds me of bathrooms and Pepto? 😝

MicheleinPhilly I don‘t think I‘ve ever actually seen pink plates. But it‘s a “No” from me. 2y
Tamra @MicheleinPhilly I had some pink Fiestaware I eventually donated because I just never wanted to use those items. 😟 And I‘m a big fan of Fiestaware! 2y
Balibee146 Never seen food on salmon pink plates before... Nope here too but the receipe looks fab 2y
Aims42 I‘m also on the no pink plate wagon, reminds me of bathroom tiles and then dirty grout and then there goes my appetite 😆 2y
ravenlee It always looks dingy or bubble gum/pepto, none of which is appetizing. 2y

Yet another winner for tasty and easy meal ideas! Nearly all perfect for me.

When am I going to learn not to browse the new cookbook section at the library? When? 🤔🤔
