Some sewing and some cooking . . .

I made a cute skirt for "back to school."  It was really simple, and I like the way it turned out. 

I also made a pasta casserole that everyone really liked.  It was even good left over.  Here's what I did.

Boil 8 oz of macaroni.

Saute some green pepper, garlic, and mushrooms in a little olive oil until soft.  Add one jar of marinara sauce, one can of tomato paste, and a couple of tablespoons of sugar.  Let the sauce simmer to get the flavors to come together.

Into the warm, drained macaroni, add 1/2 cup fat free sour cream, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, 4 wedges of laughing cow light Swiss cheese, some salt and pepper.  Place macaroni mixture in the bottom of a casserole dish.  Top with one to two cups of shredded Monteray jack cheese.

At the last minute, add a package of soy "meat" crumbles to the tomato sauce.  I use Morningstar Meal Starters.  Pour the sauce on top of the macaroni and cheese.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until bubbly.
