WELCOME to my blog… under construction. PLEASE NOTE if you are visiting for the first time or a long time fan, all my LINKS from Pinterest and just if you saved a favorite recipe, all links are broken. Most likely if you clicked on a saved link from somewhere it says “that page cannot be found”, but Do NOT worry, the recipe is STILL HERE, just lost in internet space. This happened when I had an error on my blog and someone tried to help me and basically destroyed my entire blog in the process.

THERE IS HOPE. Example: If you look at the URL of the link (recipe) you are trying to find, note the original post date, IE: 9/2012, just look in the original URL for month/year and then you can click on the ARCHIVE below under 2012 / September and then click the recipe name.

I am in the process of trying to fix my blog, but links cannot be restored, so basically my 4+ years of blogging is wasted and I am re-building from scratch. AHHHHH, okay! So…. HERE WE GO….

Mozzarella Pasta

Cutting out magazine clippings is an understatement around my house and well my kids just follow along. So, now when my daughter reads Seventeen Magazine and sees a recipe, she cuts it out and it magically appears on my kitchen counter. I think this means I am suppose to make it. Well, that's how this recipe appeared. A healthy kind of pasta dish for teenagers? I guess? I had all the stuff in house and this is what landed itself on our table for dinner.

Mozzarella Pasta
found in Seventeen Magazine, adapted to our taste

1-2/3 cups uncooked pasta (bowtie or penne)
3 tbsp olive oil
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup skim mozzarella, cubed
1-1/2 cups bagged baby spinach
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

Cook pasta according to package instructions. Ladel out 1/2 cup of the boiled water and set aside, then strain pasta. In a medium skillet, warm the oil. Add tomatoes and garlic, and saute over medium heat soft (about 15 minutes). Add the cheese, spinach, and pasta water. Remove from heat. Toss with the pasta, then cover with a lid until the cheese melts.


  1. I can't wait until my little man starts requesting I make meals other than chocolate chip cookies or pancakes. Haha! I think that is so cute of your daughter and what a great mama to make this for her. Yummy!

  2. Hopefully it won't be long before she is actually MAKING it for you rather than just leaving the recipe!

  3. Mmm, that looks like a whole bunch of cheesy goodness right there! Yum!!
