Super Shortcut Lasagna

Happy Friday, guys! So I feel like I don’t really even need to write a recipe for this one. It is just basic assembly. Here is how it went down… I took these frozen meatballs and warmed them up in this sauce. Then I mashed them up to mimic ground beef. I didn’t add any…

Chicken and Veggie Pesto Pasta

Happy Sunday, ya’ll! Going to be a crazy week filled with practices and curriculum night for Becca’s school and my school! Made this yummy pasta for lunches and fast dinners this week.

Sweet Pepper and Heirloom Tomato Pasta

Hey guys! The second week of school is off to a pretty ok start 😉 Getting back in to a routine is a blessing and a curse. Miss my summer, but I am loving my new students and the girls love their teachers. The girls are also back in cheer, which means cheer practice 3…
