I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

One Pot Souped-Up Skillet Pasta

This is one of the first recipes I made when I was first married a few (read many) years ago. Every once in a while I pull it out when I'm feeling nostalgic or if I only have 30 minutes to get supper on the table!!
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 lb ground beef (or substitute Italian sausage meat)
1 tsp dried oregano
2 cups water
1 - 28 oz can diced tomatoes (not drained)
2 cups uncooked medium shell pasta
1/3 cup parmesan
1 cup shredded mozzarella

In a large skillet brown the beef and drain off any excess fat.
Add onion soup mix powder, oregano, water and tomatoes and bring to a boil.
Stir in the pasta shells and make sure they are all submerged in the liquid. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes stirring occasionally. 
Add the parmesan and stir to combine.

And top with mozzarella. Cover a few minutes until the cheese melts
Serves 2-4 in about 30 minutes!
