Closing Time

Don’t forget to enter my Saratoga Salsa and Spice Company Giveaway!! I’ll be choosing three winners on Wednesday, August 12th!

I don’t even know how I’m still awake right now. I’ve been up since 5:00 this morning and though I’m not getting up quite as early tomorrow, Jeff and I have plans to be at the Farmer’s Market by 10!

Dinner was thrown together last minute but was oh so delicious


What I used:

  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Penne
  • ~1/2 cup Cabernet Marinara
  • ~1/2 cup Crushed Tomato with Basil
  • 1 Link Turkey Sausage, sliced
  • ~1/2 Tbsp Diced Onion
  • 2 small cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 Slice Whole Wheat Toast, chopped into breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella
  • 1/2 Tbsp Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Italian Blend Seasoning (basil, oregano, etc.)

What I did:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cook Pasta according to package directions
  2. Brown Turkey Sausage in a pan, add garlic, onion, and spices, saute for 2-3 minutes
  3. Add sauce and simmer on low heat
  4. Meanwhile, combine bread and cheese in a mini chopper and mix to a bread crumb like consistency
  5. Add sauce and sausage to cooked pasta, mix well
  6. Spray baking pan with non stick spray, add pasta, pour bread crumb mixture on top
  7. Bake for 18 minutes (c0vered in foil)
  8. Enjoy!


Then, eat chocolate & oikos covered cherries for dessert


I melted 1 square of Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate in the microwave and poured it over some cherries topped with a spoonful of Plain Oikos Yogurt. I waited until the chocolate got hard and then mixed it all up! Definitely try this – it was amazing!

I’m off to bed now. Can’t wait for the Farmer’s Market tomorrow!

What’s your favorite last minute dinner idea?

Give me some ideas people!

Have a great night!

  1. Ooh, that chocolate cherry mix looks excellent! The pasta looks delicious too. I have to try that. I always just make the same old spaghetti and sauce. I’ve got to get the pasta that comes in cute shapes, like fusilli or something. 😀
