Happy Hump Day!

Standard

This week has been rough.  Work has been busy, making me not want to do so much once I get home. Soooooo, I don’t. Then I feel horrible and lazy, especially when Boyfriend can talk for about two and a half hours about everything that he accomplishes every day.  Ugh. Over achiever.

Not really, I love him MUCHO and try to use his determination and productivity as motivation.  But this week…it’s just not working.  Knowing that my next couple of projects are halfway daunting (picture wall and/or the organization of my pantry), I have been avoiding any kind of home improvements at. all. costs.  But really.

So today at work, I got one of those e-mails from Kraft that showed pictures of yummy looking food, which made me wayyyy hungry before it was even close to my lunch time….but I decided that tonight, yes tonight, I WOULD COOOOOK!

I love cooking.

I love cooking more when Boyfriend is here cooking with me, but eh, this’ll do for now. This mortal body has grown weak. I need sustenance! ……Um, did I mention that we watched Thor over the weekend? We did.

Okay back to cooking! So, after seeing the delicious looking e-mail from Kraft today…I decided to try one of their proclaimed 30-minute meals, and it was AWESOME! And what makes it ever better….it was CHEAP! Double whammy.

It’s called Sausage With Peppers and Pasta (I promise I didn’t name it), and it was cheap, easy, fast and yummy!  Here is Kraft’s picture of it:

Here’s the ingredients and instructions….it is SUPER easy. I mean really, it is easy. And it’s good. And it’s fast.

3 cups rigatoni pasta, uncooked (I used one bag of Ziti, eh it looks the same)
1lb. Italian sausage links, sliced
1 each green, red and yellow pepper, chopped
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained (I used rotel…it’s what I had THANK YOU, coupons)
1-1/2 Mozzarella-Parmesan Cheese Blend (I just used a bag o’ Mozzarella)
1/4 cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese

Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.  Meanwhile, cook sausage in large skillet on medium heat 10 min., stirring frequently.  Stir in peppers; cook and stir 7 min. or until sausage is done and peppers are crisp-tender.  Stir in tomatoes; cook 2 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Drain pasta.  Add to sausage mixture with shredded cheese blend; mix well.  Top with Parmesan.

Easy. Peasy. And oh-so-yummy. THAT’S ALL! Happy Hump Day! 🙂
