Menu for February 1st - February 7th

What an exciting week its superbowl weekend so i'm off to the beach with the kids for a few days. So I was looking at Food Networks website last week and they have a ton of recipes that look really good. It is all the superbowl and Miami inspired stuff. I saw a picture of this burger that looked so good, so I added to this weeks menu, it's a Bobby Flay recipe. Since we purchased 1/2 a cow with my parents I have a ton of red meat, so I thought hmm whats something new you can do with round steak, spicy swiss steak that will work. Monterey chicken casserole is based on Chili's Monterey Chicken. In my AHO box this week we got some new stuff, brussel sprouts and a broccoflower. My husband says the broccoflower doesn't look edible, but I think it is, it just looks really strange. Also this week I will be posting 2 appetizer recipes for gameday. Also if your thinking hey blueberries are not in season, no they are not i'm using frozen. Everybody enjoy the game, and enjoy everyday!

Monday- Cuban Burger, potato chips, oranges
Tuesday- Spicy Swiss Steak, brown rice, green salad
Wednesday- Monterey Chicken Casserole, mashed potatoes, cauliflower
Thursday- Beef Enchilada Stack, Smothered Brussel Sprouts
Friday- Cheesy Ham Potato Broccoflower Soup, bread

Dessert of the Week: Crumb Topped Blueberry Pie

Supreme Pizza Pasta

Before I started this blog I had an idea to make pizza pasta. I figured the whole house likes pizza and pasta so why not put the 2 together. It came out delicious. So when planning this weeks menu I thought I would make it again, but based on a supreme pizza this time.

2 hot italian sausage, casings removed
8 to 10 slices of pepperoni
1 bell pepper, chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 jar pasta sauce, warmed
5 mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
1 13oz. package whole wheat penne noodles, cooked
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
Feel free to add in any toppings you like on your supreme pizza

Make It:
Preheat oven to 375. Heat a small saute pan over medium heat, add italian sausage. Stir and break up with a spoon, cook until browned. Remove from pan, spray pan with pam and add bell pepper. Cook and stir until just barely softened, about 2 minutes, remove from pan. Spray pan with pam and add onion, cook and stir until barely softened, about 2 minutes, remove from pan. Spray pan again with pam and add mushrooms, cook and stir for a 1 minute, remove from pan. Put pepperoni in pan and cook for about 2 minutes, remove to a paper towel to drain some of the oil. Mix bell pepper, sausage, onion and mushroom together. Lightly spray a tall casserole dish with pam. Add 1/2 the noodles to the dish, ladle on enough sauce to cover pasta, and stir so noodles are coated. Layer on 1/2 the bell pepper combination, 1/2 the pepperoni, another ladle of sauce and smooth to cover. Sprinkle 1 cup of cheese onto sauce. Repeat these 6 steps again and put in the oven for 20 minutes until top layer of cheese is completely melted. Let sit outside the oven for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
