Tasty Tuesday ~ Venti Coffee and a Pizza Casserole

I usually make my Tasty Tuesday recipes on Monday....however we're on about day 10 with a sick baby so needless to say there was no cooking in the EyeCanSee kitchen. There was also no sleeping in the EyeCanSee bedrooms as little Jamie was up every.single.hour. This has pretty much been his routine for a week now. So much for sleeping at all let alone through the night. Poor little guy and his snuffly nose. Poor mommy and her lack of sleep. Today I treated myself to a Venti Caramel Macchiato...thank god for Starbucks. Some days it's worth every penny!
I still have my recipe to share, I just can't say whether or not it's any good! I'll let you know the final verdict when I get around to making it....or maybe one of you could take a stab at it and let me know if it's worth making!

Pizza Casserole
1 Lb Ground beef (or Turkey)
1 small onion, chopped
1 15 oz can pizza sauce
8 oz elbow macaroni, prepared according to package directions
1 8 oz pkg shredded mozzarella
1 3.5 oz pkg pepperoni
(I can already tell I'd throw in some garlic too...can never have enough. And depending on the sauce, maybe some extra Italian Seasoning to spice it up...or a good shake of red pepper flakes for some heat)

Brown beef and onion in large skillet over medium high heat. Drain and return to pan.

Stir in pizza sauce, macaroni, mozzarella and pepperoni. Spoon into a greased 2 qt baking dish

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Bon Appetite!

Poor little guy- gosh sorry to hear about that...that is my fear that I will have two sick at the same time and want to kill myself! Can't get upset though, poor guy- hope he feels better soon, for the both of you!

Molly said...

Awwww, I'm so sorry he's been sick. I know the feeling, mama!

Question: what is that meal planner thing you're using?

Caramel Macchiato's are my favorite except for when Salted Caramel Hot Chocolates come back in season!
