At the Prosser house this week, we'll be having falafels in pita bread, BBQ chicken, a delicious penne pasta with three-cheese sauce and more! What's on your menu this week or even just tonight?
Chicken sandwiches: Morningstar veggie breaded chicken patties with swiss, tomato, lettuce, onion and light mayo on wheat bread
(Morningstar veggie burgers/veggie chicken are $1.50 per box through 9/11 after .75/1 coupon and sale at Lowes Foods, Merita autumn wheat bread is BOGO for $1.40 at Lowes Foods, Swiss cheese slices BOGO at HT last week for $1.32 per package)
Penne pasta with three-cheese sauce - here's the recipe:
1 can Progresso Recipe Starters three-cheese sauce
¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup milk
1 cup shredded cheese (I used Kraft cheddar with touch of philly cream cheese)
pepper and garlic powder.
Cook pasta and drain. Mix all ingredients in an oven proof casserole with the cooked pasta. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Top with bread crumbs if desired.
(Progresso Recipe Starters 3-cheese sauce is on sale at Lowes Foods through 9/11 for $1.38 - .50 coupon in paper recently = .38 per can)
Update: I just finished baking the penne pasta and cheese sauce and it is delicious! It's like grown-up mac and cheese. I am sure the kids will love it! You can see the picture of the dish above. I'll add the recipe to the recipe database (link is in box above). It would also be good with added veggies like green peppers, mushrooms, onions, spinach or diced chicken.
Falafels in pita pockets with tzaziki sauce (cucumber, dill and yogurt sauce), shredded romaine lettuce and diced tomatoes.
I am making my own tzaziki using a recipe from AllRecipes.com HERE but Harris Teeter makes delicious tzaziki sauce found in the deli (it’s not on sale this week, but sometimes goes on sale BOGO)
The falafels are from Veggie Patch (found in produce section) and were marked down ½ price at Lowes Foods this morning because the container is expiring in a few days. If you want to make your own (and I will be trying this recipe very soon), click HERE for a baked falafel recipe that you can bake in the oven or pan fry.

It’s my oldest daughter’s birthday so we are celebrating with ……..something. She hasn’t yet decided what she wants for dinner, so this meal is still up in the air. There will be cake and ice cream and that’s all I know right now. Although she has not decided what kind of cake she wants either. Happy birthday, sweetie!
