Hellur thur, Happy Monday! So, my roommates and I L-O-V-E to put together a good meal.. almost more than we love to binge-watch “The Following” on Netflix. Almost more. Last week, we prepared Organic Spaghetti, topped it with a Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce, threw some Turkey-Parmesan Meatballs on top and added some stuffed crescents and sautéed spinach. Usually, we opt for healthy meals, but this pasta dish was too yum-o to turn down. I mean…. this recipe is to-die-for. See for yourself:
We started with an organic spaghetti from Costco (a.k.a. Heaven-on-Earth) and whipped up this Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce (found here). Then, we adjusted a Chicken Parm Meatball recipe (here ya go) to include ground turkey instead of chicken. The only reason for this was that we didn’t have any ground chicken, so use whatever it is that you like better.
On top of all of that, my roommate, Jac, made some Bacon-Jalapeño Cream Cheese stuffed crescent rolls. Thats a mouthful… no pun intended. This easy addition was made simply by smearing a small amount of cream cheese on store-bought crescents and toping with jalapeño and bacon bits, then baking for the allotted time on the package. These little bites of heaven contain a little more processed ingredients than I generally include in my diet, but they were too hard to turn down. The pups even got to split a little one… who can say no to their cute leetle faces??
And don’t forget the champagne! I’m not sure what our excuse for celebration was… but there is always a reason for a little glass of da bubbly. I picked up this Lagranja 360 Cava Brut at Trader Joe’s for about $7 (hey, I’m in college.. not rollin’ in the $$). It was a pretty good little treat for less than $10. Gotta love Trader J’s.
