I’ve got sad news. I’m giving up blogging.
Lame, I know I couldn’t think of anything better!
My kitchen feels complete. I am now the proud owner of 6 ramekins. Aren’t the cuuute? 😉
Is there a kitchen gadget, utensil, or dish that you reeeally want?
I was trying to make Jess’s Pizza Pasta, but I ended up making something slightly different…
Prevention Pizza Pasta Bake
4 cups whole wheat pasta, cooked
2 cups low-sodium pasta sauce
2 tsp fresh or dried basil
2 tsp Italian seasoning
3 tsp minced garlic
2 ounces provolone, sliced into small, thin slices
34 slices turkey pepperoni, cut in half
1/2 cup 2% shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Cook pasta according to directions.
Combine pasta sauce, basil, Italian seasoning, and garlic. Stir in pasta and stir to coat. Stir in provolone, mozzarella, and turkey pepperoni. Place into a 9×9 baking dish or 2 quart casserole dish. Bake for 15 minutes or until heated through.
Remove dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Turn on broiler to 500º F. Broil the pasta bake for 4 minutes or until the Parmesan cheese turns slightly brown. Serves 4.

The pizza pasta bake was WONDERFUL! Thanks for the great idea, Jess! Mr. Prevention looooved this dish!
I served it with:
Steamed ARTICHOKE! Mmmmmm!!! Love’em! $1 at Whole Foods!!!
And we enjoyed dinner in the great outdoors…
Lily and I want to wish everyone good luck in the April “DO what you DON’T” Challenge!
“If you don’t want too many cute wrinkles like me, you should DO what you DON’T!” Love, Lily
Question #1: For those participating in the DO what you DON’T challenge this April, what do you anticipate being your biggest barrier in meeting your goal?
I think mine will be traveling a lot this month and not being on an entirely normal schedule. Yoga and strength training can be done anywhere, though…no excuses!!
Question #2: Have you ever had a steamed artichoke? What did you dip the leaves in (if anything)? Did you like it?
P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MOMMY!!!!!! XOXO!!!
