At first, I said 'no'...because it cost $19 dollars. But then, I came to my senses...remembering WHO I was, WHAT blog I wrote, and WHAT my responsibility is to my readers.
So, yes, I splurged. Because, honestly, when your SON asks for a COOKBOOK...what else do you do?
Tonight's dinner? Page 38 - Easy-as-Pie-Spaghetti-Bake...now known as Spaghetti Pie.
An interesting twist on your typical spaghetti and meat sauce, the before-baking product looks somewhat like this:
|The meat/bread crumb mixture forms the pie's "shell", while the cooked spag/egg mixture makes the "filling". Spaghetti sauce and mozzarella top the concoction!|
Here, later on tonight, I'll post the final judgment.
Later on: the consensus regarding the above dinner was very positive. Seasoned breadcrumbs gave the shell a different savor. In many ways, though, it tasted much like standard ol' Spaghetti and Meat Sauce. However, the presentation was fun - the longer the dish sits, the easier it sits up like a piece of cake. All in all, thumbs up from everyone at the table.
