Hello!

Untitled1Hellllooo from the good state of Pennsylvania! Sorry for the lack of posts but I have been traveling for a baby party & wedding fun! We just celebrated my beautiful nieces first birthday (yes, SHE IS ONE ALREADY) with a Minnie Mouse themed party! Then the hub & I helped our dear friends say ‘I do’ with a winter wonderland themed wedding in Pittsburgh that was over the top fun with a cookie table & all!

Now I am back in my hometown to hang with my family, lounge in my pjs & whip up some dishes from the past for my fam to taste. Here are a few of my faves that I will be creating in the kitchen this week. Check them out…

Maple Cinnamon Pancakes

Tofu Stuffed Shells

Roasted Fennel Beet Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

OMG Overload Cookies

Hope you enjoy!  I will be back next week relaxed & hopefully out of my pjs 😉

Meatless Monday: Tofu Stuffed Shells with Marinara

_MG_1195 (1)

Hellooo meatless Monday – this meal is A MUST! I am for real making this for my friends who LOVE cheese/HATE tofu – cause this will trick them (insert evil laugh here)!!!

But for real. This meal had a few simple steps, was easy to assemble & only took 30minutes to bake in the oven. So get to it!

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350degrees & fill pot with water/let boil
  2. Once boiling add 20 jumbo pasta shells & salt – boil for 9 minutes, then drain – set aside
  3. Defrost 10oz frozen spinach pouch & drain Lite Firm Nasoya tofu – pat dry with paper towel
  4. Crumble tofu in food processor & mix in: 2T EVOO, 1.5t salt, 1t oregano, 1T nutritional yeast, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1/2C fresh basil & defrosted spinach
  5. In a bowl combine crushed San Marzano tomatoes, 2 cloves minced garlic & 1t of oregano, basil & parsley
  6. Grab baking dish & cover bottom with half of your marinara – fill shells with tofu mixture (~2T each) & place open side face down
  7. Pour remaining marinara over filled pan
  8. Cover with aluminum foil & bake for 30minutes

Served with a side salad with balsamic vinaigrette & toasted french bread – YUM!
