Can you believe that tomorrow is July 1st? I heard some popping sounds outside this evening and couldn’t figure if someone was shooting target practice.. Then I realized how close we are to the 4th of July and the noises then made sense..lol
I have to share a recipe that I made for dinner tonight.. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, but wow, the flavor was wonderful! I will definitely keep this in our meal rotation to have again. I always buy whole grain pasta only, and also low fat mozzarella cheese, so all in all it’s a fairly healthy meal.. YUM! Try it and let me know what YOU think! =)
