Parmesan Potatoes

I created this idea a few days ago when I was thinking about sides. I knew that I had planned on buying a thing of fresh Parmesan. So I created these easy Parmesan potatoes.

Parmesan potatoes
4 Sliced Potatoes
(slice them to make round slices)
1/2 Stick of softened butter
1 1/2 C Fresh Parmesan
Salt and Pepper to Taste

In a 9x13 Take some of your softened butter and coat the bottom of your pan. Next take your slices of potato and lay them overlapping each other and cover each layer with fresh parm till you layer a few times.  Take what's left of your butter and melt it. Pour it over the top of the potatoes. Now take your fresh parm and sprinkle it heavily over the potatoes. Bake covered for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake till the cheese has turned golden brown. Serve hot.

Garlic Pasta

1/4 C Grated parm for topping
In a skillet melt your butter, add oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes. Take your cooked pasta and toss it in the butter garlic mix. Sprinkle with fresh grated Parm. ENJOY

Tomato Basil Mozzarella Tart


Good Morning All! My daughter and I love Tomatoes, and basil. So, I came up with this tomato, basil tart! Its so easy but yet so good.  There was one piece leftover and my 6 year old took it to school. I wish I would of made two. LOL This was a huge hit :-) 

Basil Tomato Tart
2 Sliced tomatoes
(Make sure they are equal size)
7-8 Basil leaves of good size
Whole Mozzarella
(not shaved)
1 Tsp Sea Salt
1 Tsp Cracked Pepper
1 pizza dough

First slice your tomatoes...you want them semi thin but not to thin. Slice your mozzarella. Make sure its thick but not to thick. Pick or set aside your basil leaves. In a pie dish or a tart pan spray it so it doesn't stick.  Take your pizza dough and spread it in the pan making sure it goes up the sides. You don't want thick you want a thin amount. Now take a tomato place it around the edge. Then take your mozzarella and over lap the tomato. Put a basil leaf, then keep doing it around the dish, and in the middle. Alternating between tomato, basil and mozzarella. Then drizzle olive oil over it. Sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper. Bake at 350 till the dough looks done, and the mozzarella is melted and starting to turn golden. Take it out and let it cool before popping it out.  Slice and ENJOY!

Basically Easy Eats- PASTA

Hello and welcome to the third edition of Basically Easy Eats. I am so sorry that it was delayed. I had intended to post it on Friday but things came up, my fingers hurt etc. Anyhow, I am back and I hope you enjoy!
***********
Pasta!! Well I love Pasta and its cheap. Face it I can get a thing of spaghetti or elbow mac for about a dollar. I generally always have pasta around and I'm sure you do as well. So what can you do with it? I like to think of Pasta as a blank canvas....

Pancetta mac N Cheese- Pancetta is sooo good but it can be expensive. So you can use bacon.
**************
Bruschetta Pasta Salad is a great recipe that my oldest and I love....Its a great way to use up leftover Elbow Mac.
***********
Baked Ziti is another great recipe using leftover noodles.
***************
Garlic Olive Oil Pasta w/ chicken is a great recipe!
**************

You can also make a great American chop suey! Just add spaghetti sauce, elbow mac and hamburger. Most call it Goulash. When I moved to Mass they call it American Chop Suey!! 

I love Pasta, and realized I don't have a ton of recipes using it. I need to work on that!! I hope you enjoy these few recipes. 

Till next time!!!!
