Last week I decided that I wanted to have a big breakfast at some point during the Memorial Day weekend since I had a three-day holiday from work. I made Belgian waffles, grits with cheese, eggs with cheese, oatmeal, and breakfast sausage. I was grateful to God that everything turned out good. I had been wanting to use the Belgian waffle snap-in plates for two months. Unfortunately, I allowed fear to get in the way of me jumping in and giving it a try. I used Amber Honey for the waffle topping, and it was soooo good.
Normally, when there’s a holiday involved, I usually start cooking early. However, this past Monday, Memorial Day, I didn’t start cooking my dish until around 4:15 p.m. or so. I wanted to have an easy Monday and not have to rush to do anything. My son and I were eating by 5:30 p.m., which was nice. The spaghetti casserole that I decided to make was a literal concoction that I came up with on the Friday before the holiday. I hope you are enjoying some beautiful weather this weekend. Bless you all!
Here’s the recipe:
2 bunches of swiss chard
1 (8 oz.) pack of sliced mushrooms
1 can of diced tomatoes (no salt)
2 red peppers
2 green peppers
1 box of whole wheat spaghetti
1 pack of Mexican shredded cheese
2 cans of Hunt’s pasta sauce (1 four cheese can & 1 garlic and herb can)
2 cups of avocado oil
5 tablespoons of each: garlic powder, curry, onion powder, chili powder, turmeric, cumin, parsley, ginger.
Boil about four cups of water in avocado oil, then add the spaghetti.
While the pasta is preparing, Saute the mushrooms, diced tomatoes, and peppers in the avocado oil. Add all the seasonings to the mixture.
Once the above is ready, drain the spaghetti and dump it into a big bowl.
Dump the vegetables on top and mix it as best you can. You don’t have to worry about it being perfect. It’s kind of like a “messy casserole mix”.
Grab a 9 x 13 Casserole dish and cover the bottom with cheese.
Dump the contents of the bowl into the casserole pan.
Pour the two cans of pasta sauce on top.
Place in the oven on 425 degrees for 30 minutes.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top before eating. Man, that was so good mixed with the Mexican cheese.
