    barbiedoll1967 - The recipe varies depending on what I have in the house. Today's version included whole wheat penne cooked mixed with sauteed mushrooms, onions, green peppers and butterball turkey sausage sliced. I then added Barilla onion and garlic pasta sauce, pepper, garlic powder and Italian spices to the mixture in the pan. I put half the mixture in a large baking dish and put a layer of provolone slices on top then added the other half of the mixture and another layer of provolone slices. I baked it for about 25 minutes and YUM! I'm serving it with some of the garlic Naan bread and salad. It's heatin back up in the oven as I type this and the house smells great.

    barbiedoll1967 - The pasta bake just came out of the oven and the whole house smells great! I made it early today so I could take some to my dad and now I want dinner for breakfast. lol Chicken tacos sound very tasty. And your car is soooo cute!

    I am making an Italian pasta bake with turkey sausage, mushrooms, peppers and onions and a big salad for dinner. I'm using the Buy 2 Get 3 Bertolli pasta sauce from HT.

    ascherer - Your dinner sounds great!

    Tonight is pork chops (maybe grilled with BBQ sauce) with sides of corn on the cob, baked beans, and a side salad.

    Happy Friday everyone!!
