First recipe

I finally compiled my kitchen together after days of unpacking and reopening our shower/wedding gifts. So what better way to complete it other than cooking? I have gathered so many recipes the past year from family, friends, showers, magazines, and the internet that I could feed an army if I made each one in my recipe box.

Tonight I decided on Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti.

12 oz spaghetti
1 (28 ounce) jars prepared spaghetti sauce ( I used Prego with Mushrooms and Green Peppers)
1 lb lean ground beef
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 clove garlic, minced
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Cook the ground beef. Drain. Mix with spaghetti sauce and put aside. Cook your noodles and drain. Pour noodles into a separate bowl and add cream cheese, italian seasoning, and garlic. Grate Parmesan cheese.
Pour a little meat sauce on the bottom on a greased 9x13 dish. Pour noodle mixture and spread. Pour remaining meat sauce and then top with parmesan cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees and voila! I topped mine with a little more cheese and basil.

Thank you logan for the vintage pyrex little dish! I love them!

I think I was more excited to use all my new dishes and kitchen supplies than I was to eat a meal.

However, it made me miss everyone at home :(

That was only me eating. Fortunately, Tyler gets back from Pittsburgh tomorrow night and can finish the 7 servings of left overs! I cannot wait to live in our new home together...finally furnished and unpacked! Pictures soon to come.

In other news...THE OLYMPICS START TOMORROW! I may develop a temporary crush on Michael Phelps...or Lochte...either one. Go 'merica!
