Meal Plan- Week of 9/23/12

I’ve been doing awesome with meal planning.  Oh wait, that’s a lie. 

I have lots of excuses but I’ll save them for another day.  Today, this meal planning train is back on track.  Here we go…


Chili and corn bread



Parmesan Bow-Tie Skillet

  • 3 cups farfalle, cooked, drained
  • 1 jar (14oz.) spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Combine pasta, spaghetti sauce, ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella and 2 Tbsp. of Parmesan cheese in a large skillet or saucepan.

Cook on medium heat 10 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and remaining 2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese; cover.  Let stand 5 minutes or until mozzarella cheese is melted.

Makes 4 servings ( 1 1/4 cups each).
