For Cheaters

I know you are thinking that you are above cheating. Well, not me—at least when it comes to cooking that is. I find that you can’t be perfect all of the time. To be realistic, you won’t be making things from scratch every day of the week. Here are a few tips that I use to speed up a few of my favorite dishes.


1 jar of your favorite brand of spaghetti sauce
(If you have super picky eaters that don’t like to see their veggies try Ragu organic—no chunks.)

Now have some fun with a few add ins:

Try one of these meats,

1 lb. cooked and ground beef
½ lb. cooked and cut chicken

Then add,
1 C. mozzarella cheese

It sounds easy but it’s super yummy.

Another variation is:

½-1 lb. spicy Italian sausage links cut up
8 oz. fresh sliced mushrooms
1 red pepper cleaned and diced
1 C. mozzarella cheese
(cook all of the sausage, mushrooms and peppers in a splash of olive oil for a few minutes and then add the sauce and cheese. You will not be disappointed!)

Don’t forget to cook some of your favorite pasta to compliment your amazing sauce.

Happy Cheating!
