A recipe is likened to a personal expression of poetry/prose...
When shared with others, it extends a part of our innermost being...
For others to enjoy for years to come, not short lived like a rose.
A recipe takes on our individuality and culinary expression, talent and skill...
Brings to mind the likes/dislikes of family and friends, memories of special
Sharing a part of ourselves with others, making memories, spanning time our
"appetites" they fill.

Dinner was easy tonight...had been wanting to try a Pizza Pasta Casserole recipe that I had seen...so with a few changes that's what happened!
Everything that I had seen made TOO much or had different ingredients than those that I had on hand.
Paula's Pizza Pasta
1 lb. Sweet Italian Sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
8 oz. Rotini Pasta, cooked al dente
2 cans Hunt's Dinner Starters (Pizza)
2 cups Italian blend cheese (Mozzarella, Romano, Provolone, Asiago & Parmesan)
4 oz. sliced pepperoni
In large skillet, swaute Italian sausage until cooked through. Add chopped onion & continue to cook for 8-10 minutes. Add cooked & drained pasta, Hunt's sauce. Preheat oven to 350. Pour Pasta mixture into 13x9 casserole dish. Top with shredded cheese & place pepperoni over cheese. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes.
Added a side salad and an easy & tasty dinner was on the table in such a short time!
