Round Six - What's Cookin', Good Lookin'

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

If you haven't checked out the Budget Bytes blog, do it. She doesn't have calorie counts up on her recipes, but It is easy enough to track the components of the dishes. Also, there comes a time when you can look at a recipe and know that it is healthy. Her recipes are all healthy.

Creamy Spinach & Sausage Pasta

This was like a healthy grown up version of hamburger helper. I wouldn't really call it "creamy" though. It was easy and delicious. DH and I both loved it as is, no changes. However, even with the mild version of Rotel, the girls complained that it was spicy. Next time that I make it (and there will be a next time), I think I'll use Italian styled tomatoes instead.

Edited to Add - It was like hamburger helper in that the pasta cooked with the other ingredients in the skillet and was super convenient.

    Looks great! I've had this one bookmarked for awhile, and I like anything that cooks altogether in one pan!

    It looks delicious! And thank you for introducing us to another great recipe site! The idea of calculating the cost for each recipe and serving could be really useful for some people.

    Looks fabulous! I love the budgetbytes site too. You've gotta try her hummus--the jalapeņo cilantro and roasted red pepper versions are too-die-for and better than anything you'll ever get at the supermarket.
