Rigatoni

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

One half pound of rigatoni, cooked al detente

One 24 ounce jar Prego Traditional Italian Sauce


One pound hamburger, browned and drained

One 8 ounce package of Bel Gioioso Fresh Mozzarella Pearls 


Combine all ingredients; pour into 9×13 baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. At the end of 20 minutes, remove foil and bake for 10 more minutes.

I didn’t get a photo of the baked product– we ate it too quickly!

Beef Quesadillas 

We love chicken quesadillas; we’ve not made beef quesadillas before tonight. They turned out great!

Ingredients:

One half pound of roast beef, in strips

One teaspoon of each of the following: cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, cilantro, salt and pepper

Canola oil 

Eight 8-inch tortillas 

Cheese

Directions:

Fry meat with seasonings  until totally browned in two tablespoons of oil. Set aside. 

On a flat griddle, well-oiled, brown two tortillas. The important thing is to brown each side of the tortilla. It’s ok to flip them more than once to get them brown enough. 

Ok, time to put them together! On one tortilla, add some beef and as much cheese as you can handle. Allow the cheese to melt a bit; top with second tortilla. Use a large pancake turner and spoon to flip the quesadilla. Be careful! 

When it’s brown and melty enough, place on oven-safe plate and set in oven to keep warm. 

Repeat until you’ve made four quesadillas. Serve with sour cream, salsa and refried beans. 

Hamburger Helper: Crunchy Taco

It’s review time!


My son likes Hamburger Helper. From the red box, not the kind I can make from scratch.

Last night we had the Crunchy Taco HH. Here’s what we thought:

It was delicious, yes, but it needed more crunchy chips; also if I had added a few pinto beans, it would have made it better.

So, next time: more chips and add the beans!
