4 Ingredient Spaghetti

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great Christmas and a great start to the new year!
Now that the holidays are winding down and everyone is preparing to get back to a "regular" routine, I thought I would share my easy 4 spaghetti recipe! It doesn't get much simpler than this! 

This time I used Ronzoni rotini noodles, which I love. They taste great and are just the right texture! 

For this 4 ingredient spaghetti, I used:
1 box of rotini noodles
-1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
-1 8 oz can of tomato sauce 
-1 lb of ground beef 

To make: 
-Once the beef is browned and drained, I like to mix in the sauce and tomatoes and let it simmer for awhile to let the flavors soak in. I then cook the noodles according to the directions on the box and then mix in the beef mixture. 

*we don't use a lot of spices, but if you wish to, you can always add your own while it's simmering or add some tomato paste which has some spices already mixed in 

Finished product! As you can see, it makes quite a bit! It always lasts us at least 3-4 days, sometimes more. And it always tastes better as left-overs! 

Serve with toasted bread and a veggie of your choice!

Our Favorite Dinner Dishes

These last couple of months have been very busy. I haven't had time to come up with new recipes so I thought I would share some recipes that are pretty popular around our house right now. I have found these through social media and want you all to know about them b/c they are really great! I want to share the wealth! 

Ok, so the first one is one that we tried tonight for dinner. It came into my inbox at just the right time, when I desperately needed something, anything to make for dinner tonight. It was awesome! To make it gluten free, I used Pacific Naturals Cream of Chicken Soup. 

The second one is an awesome comfort food dish that is already made gluten free! It's a great dish to make on those cold winter nights! 

And last but not least, I came across this recipe while searching on Pamela's Products website. She  has some great recipes there! This one is one of my husband's favorites. He wants me to make this at least once a week, maybe more. I don't mind, b/c it's a great tasting dinner and we always have leftovers! 

I hope you enjoy these dishes as much as we did (and still do)! I also have A TON of other recipes on my Pinterest board. Check them out here:

Hey everyone! It's time for another Weekly Menu post! Sorry I haven't posted one in a couple of weeks. It's been pretty crazy around here with traveling, giveaways and other stuff going on! Can you believe that we are in August already? Before we know it, Christmas will be here! Crazy!! 
Anyway, here's your Meal Plan for the week: 

Monday:  Turkey Meatloaf  -This recipe can be accomodated to fit several allergy needs 
Tuesday: One Dish Chicken Meal -Easy dinner to put together! Only uses one dish! 
Wednesday: Applesauce BBQ Chicken  -This one uses the slow cooker. Great for those hot days when you don't want to use your oven!
Thursday: Quinoa Stuffed Peppers  -These are pretty yummy and satisfying! 
Friday: Turkey Burgers with Greek Yogurt Mayo -A lighter version to beef burgers, the turkey burger is a great option! And tons of protein! 
Saturday: French Toast -Can't go a whole week without one brinner (breakfast for dinner) meal! 
Sunday: Leftovers 

Snacks: Sausage Cheese Biscuits (Sausage Balls) -These are so yummy and since the recipe makes a ton, you could also eat them as a quick on the go breakfast! 

Have a great week! :)
