I’m still dealing with a cold, so Dixie helped me work from home yesterday. I think it’s so cute how she always has to be right next to me. I know she enjoyed having some company during the day!
I also got to see what she does all day.. she sleeps until I force her to get up and go outside (around noon). Then she falls asleep outside. I wake her up and bring her inside so she can go straight to the couch to sleep some more. Then around 4:00 she is hyper and full of energy, ready to run/play/eat/play some more. I think I would really love to be a dog.
It was another no run day for me, so I decided I might as well spend all my time cooking something delicious for dinner. I’m all about easy recipes and minimal ingredients, and this baked ziti recipe really is delicious, even if I do use spaghetti sauce from a jar (yes that is a side of cookies you see in the background).
- 1 lb dry ziti pasta
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 lb ground beef
- 1/2 lb italian sausage
- 2 (26 oz) jars spaghetti sauce
- 1.5 cups sour cream
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tsp garlic salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add ziti and cook 8-10 min.
While ziti is cooking, heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook onion and garlic for about 5 minutes.
Add ground beef and Italian sausage and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Add spaghetti sauce and simmer another 5-10 min. Season with basil, oregano, and garlic salt.
Spray a 9×13 baking dish and start layering! Start with 1/2 of the pasta, cover with half of the cheese, sour cream, then 1/2 sauce mixture. Then remaining ziti, remaining sauce, and remaining cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
YUMMMMMMMM. Looking forward to getting back to running today. I’m hoping to do 9-10 miles Saturday, so I’m overdosing on Vitamin C & electrolytes to get this cold out of my system.
What did you have for dinner last night?
What are your weekend running plans?
