I made pita pizzas last night. Everyone loved them!

Pita Pizza

1 pita bread per each pizza
Pizza sauce - I made 8 pizzas
using 1 1/2 cups of sauce

Mozzarella cheese
Fav toppings - I used sliced mushrooms,
black olives, turkey pepperoni & fresh parm
cheese.

Preheat oven to 450*

Lay pita breads on cookie sheets. Top with sauce and mozzarella cheese. Allow everyone to top their pizza with their favorite toppings.

I had to use 2 cookie sheets at one time in the oven so I baked our pizzas for 8 minutes, and then switched positions with the trays in the oven and baked for another 2 minutes.

I'm planning on making a bunch of these and freezing them to have on hand for lunches or snacks.

Toppings that we've thought of:

Red sauce pizza
Buffalo chicken and cheese
Ham and cheese
taco
veggie and cheese

You can see pics of them on my blog.

Tuesday night

Sausgae and Pasta Bake

1 pound Italian sausage hot or mild cut up
1 jar (15 ounces) spaghetti sauce or home made
8 ounces penne pasta, cooked and drained
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 package (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. In a greased 2-qt. baking dish, combine the sausage, sauce, penne past and Parmesan cheese. Top with mozzarella cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Makes4-6 servings.

Homemade Tomato Sauce
10 ripe large tomatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 cup Burgundy wine
1 bay leaf
2 stalks celery
2 tablespoons tomato paste

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Have ready a large bowl of iced water. Plunge whole tomatoes in boiling water until skin starts to peel, 1 minute. Remove with slotted spoon and place in ice bath. Let rest until cool enough to handle, then remove peel and squeeze out seeds. Chop 8 tomatoes and puree in blender or food processor. Chop remaining two tomatoes and set aside.
In a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, cook onion, bell pepper, carrot and garlic in oil and butter until onion starts to soften, 5 minutes. Pour in pureed tomatoes. Stir in chopped tomato, basil, Italian seasoning and wine. Place bay leaf and whole celery stalks in pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 2 hours. Stir in tomato paste and simmer an additional 2 hours. Discard bay leaf and celery and serve. You can also up the sauce in the blender after cooking if you want it more smoother and no chunks.

I'm thinking of making lasagne for dinner tonight. My DH is starting very long work hrs and I'm not sure what time he'll be getting off so something that can be warmed up will be good.

Salad and garlic bread too. mmm maybe a glass of wine too.

Tami, pita pizzas sound so good and easy!

Tonight we're having Taco Skillet. I made a "dinner kit" so I can get it on the table in 10 minutes or so when I get home from soccer practice with Luke. Ground beef already cooked, mixed with the salsa, tomato sauce, water and cheese. Tortillas already cut up and ready to stir in--then it all has to be heated up; serve with a salad and dinner is on the table.
