It was a dark and stormy night...

Ok.. not stormy,

but certainly dreary.

In response to the cold rain

I made a warm and filling pasta bake.

Tomatoes from my gardens

picked at perfection and frozen before the sun's warmth had left them.

Slow cooked all day

until they were a beautiful sauce.

Whole wheat penne pasta,

alfredo sauce,

ricotta cheese,

shredded basil leaves,


red and green peppers,

onions and mushrooms,

fresh spinach,

a little bit of hot red pepper,

and a ton of cheeses.. parmesan, romano, mozzarella..

Baked till hot and bubbly.

Warm against the cold, dark night

and, oh so good.


  1. That is a great recipe! Isn't it great to grow most of your own food! I love the looks of the ending meal! Thanks for posting the recipe!

  2. It was sooo good and hot and bubbly.
    If ya'll like recipes I can do more.. I am a great cook and do it three times a day at least. Got to feed the menfolk.

  3. Oh my goodness. That looks sooo good. Yes, please do share your recipes.
