Baked Ziti

Make a red sauce; if you look at my past posts you will find a recipe. Line the bottom of a baking dish with ricotta cheese. My dish was maybe 10x6. Don't know as I didn't measure it. Add ziti noodles that have only been cooked to al dente. On top of that put sausage. I bought a link of sweet Italian at Whole Foods and squeezed it out of the casing. I put little bits of it across the top. Top that with provolone cheese. Add some of your sauce. Bake at 350 until your noodles are done (crisp on top as well). Let it stand for a bit when you are done to let it firm up. Serve with more sauce on top.

Breakfast in October

Cook bacon in an iron skillet until it is crisp. I used almost a whole pound. Why not? Set aside when done and sauté onion and green pepper .... yes, in the bacon grease. When your veggies are translucent spoon them out and put them in a baking dish - about 9x9 inches. Crumble the bacon on top. Layer with shredded cheddar cheese. In a bowl mix together 1/2 cup of buttermilk baking mix (although next time I am trying 3/4 of a cup) and 6 eggs. Pour over your ingredients that are in your baking dish.
Bake @ 400 for about 30 minutes, or until your fork comes out clean from the center. I cooked it the night before and had a bit for dinner. It was actually better the next morning as it seemed to firm up.

Going to a Bring a Dish

Are you going to a bring a dish, but you are afraid to take a serving spoon because it will get lost? Label it by sticking one of your return mailing stickers on it. Cover it for extra protection with clear tape.
