Enough doom and gloom, it's time for some food.

Dinner last night was a pretty simple affair, but is tasty.

- one pound of pasta, cooked ~2 minutes less than recommended time, drained
- one quart jar of ground beef, browned (about 1lb) and drained
- one jar spaghetti sauce
- one large can crushed tomatoes
- one small can sliced black olives
- one can artichoke hearts
- lotsa cheese
- bread crumbs
seasoning to taste (garlic and oregano)

combine everything but the cheese and crumbs in a 3-quart casserole, put the cheese on top, bread crumbs over that, and bake at 350F for 30-45 minutes (until the cheese is melty and starting to brown).

Adding a minced onion would've been good too.

Tasty! I do a similar pasta bake, but with italian sausage and peppers. 1 lb sauasage, 1 each onion, red and green peppers, garlic. Toss with pasta and sauce, the throw it in a casserole, cover with cheese and broil for 10 min or so. In a half hour you have food that looks like you slaved all day over.

Not an artichoke guy, but that sounds tasty enough that I'd probably give it a try. Homemade tomato-sriracha soup was on my stove the other night!

Nice choice! Kinda like baked Ziti, right?

Yum!! Today was salads and light eating to make up for past luxuries, but tomorrow morning - Corn Biscuits with chive and sage topped with applewood smoked bacon and red eye gravy (you know, gravy made with coffee so we can cover all the food groups)
