Pasta, Pasta, Pasta

Is your food storage starting to look like this?
This is the pasta I've accumulated over the last 2 weeks doing the Smith's March Madness Sale. There are 8 boxes of Ronzoni Smart Taste, 2 boxes of Ronzoni Healthy Harvest, and 10 packages of American Beauty pasta. The beauty of all this? I paid a grand total of $5.40 for all of this! To see how I did it, click here.

Now that I have all this pasta, what am I going to do with it? Well, having small children, spaghetti is a HUGE staple in our house. However, there are also some other great things you can do with spaghetti noodles. One recipe that we have loved is called String Pie. The recipe is as follows:

1 lb ground beef
8 oz pkg spaghetti noodles, cooked and drained
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. cottage cheese
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 jar (15 oz) spaghetti sauce
1/3 c. grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese


Brown beef and onion. Drain fat. Add jar of spaghetti sauce. Mix well and simmer.
Combine hot spaghetti noodles, parmesan cheese, eggs, and butter in large bowl. Mix well.
Place noodles mixture in bottom of 9 X 13 dish. Spread cottage cheese over noodles. Pour sauce over cottage cheese and sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.


Many of the other ingredients in the recipe I found in past sales with coupons.  So it makes for a cheap, delicious meal!

i bet that dish freezes pretty well. i need to try it. it reminds me of something my sister used to make in college called saxaphahash (that's how i choose to spell it anyway). the secret ingredient was cream cheese! i should try to track it down. bret's not a fan of spaghetti - but with the right amounts of cheese he probably will inhale it.

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
