One Pot Summer Pasta An easy summer recipe made in one pot! Eat it hot today and eat the left overs cold to take and go on a busy summer day. Both are delicious! I was at the pool last week when we took a break from swimming to eat our lunch and while I brought out my boring peanut butter sandwiches for me and the kids, my friend took out a container of some ridiculously amazing looking pasta that then wafted it’s savory scent over to my nose and made me almost drool! I asked her what it was and she told me the leftovers from their dinner the other day. I thought about that yummy pasta all day {I mean hey, I am pregnant!} The first fabulous part of this recipe is that you can make the whole thing in one big pot. To begin put on a large pot of water to boil. Boil the pasta as directed until it is al dente. Once it is cooked, take the pasta and the rest of the veggies you chopped and the salt and stir them into the pot with the oil until the pasta is coated. That is all there is to it!

Lasagna Roll Ups | Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Roll Up Recipe I love traditional lasagna with layers and layers of cheese, sauce, and vegetables. But my new favorite way to enjoy lasagna is in roll up form. You know, like fruit roll ups, but way better because it’s lasagna! Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Roll Ups are fun to make and fun to eat! I love making a big pan of lasagna roll ups so we can eat it all week-the leftovers are great. To make the Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Roll Ups, boil the lasagna noodles and make the spinach artichoke ricotta filling. Next, it’s time to roll! Spoon some marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 pan and place the fat lasagna rolls in the pan. Put the pan in the oven and plop down on the couch to watch your favorite TV show or curl up with a book while it bakes. Pull the pan out of the oven and try to let it cool before diving in! So if you were thinking about what to make for dinner tonight, I hope you are no longer thinking.
