Perfect Pears

This is an oldie, but SUCH a goodie.
And simple too!
All you do is peel and slice a fresh pear, microwave for about 30 seconds, sprinkle cinnamon on top, and drizzle with hot fudge sauce. 

Now I'm wishing I had a pear in my house! I do have apples...



Salmon and Zucchini Pasta Bake

I'm not sure what to call this.
It's not my own original recipe, I made it off inspiration from this blog post.
A meal this good doesn't need a name.
See blog title! Haha

8 oz farfalle pasta, cooked, drained
3 small zucchinis (each approx 5-6 in long), sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
2-3 cloves minced garlic
10 oz fresh wild caught salmon
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 package Knorr white sauce, prepared per instructions
salt and pepper to taste

Boil 1/2 box of farfalle bowtie pasta, drain
Saute 3 smallish zucchinis with a Tbsp of olive oil, a 1/2 cup chopped onion, at least 2 cloves of garlic, and salt and pepper to taste.
Cook 10oz wild salmon in a large skillet and flake when done.

In your baking dish, layer pasta, zucchini, salmon, then a 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup feta.

Repeat layers but before you sprinkle on the cheese, pour Knorr white sauce on top. Then sprinkle cheeses.

Bake in a pre-heated 375* oven for 20 min or until browned and bubbly.

Dig in and your friends will be happy they stopped by.


Savory Tomato Pie

When thinking about what to make for dinner, I usually forget what is in my freezer.
This time I planned my meal around it!
I've had a frozen pie crust sitting at the ready for probably a year. 
I then decided to make a savory pie.
My choices seemed to be quiche or pot pie.
Until I fell upon this tasty recipe for tomato pie!

It is to die for!!
I wasn't sure what to expect as I'd never eaten tomato pie before.
It was like a pizza with fresh tomatoes.
Not gonna lie, I ate two slices.

We had the other half for supper the next night but the tomatoes made the bottom crust soggy by that time, so it wasn't nearly as good. 
Definitely need to eat this bad boy up the day you make it. 
Share it with neighbors, they'll be your best friends.

You need to try this! It is basically a summer in a shell. Mmm I might just make it again next week!
