Foodie Friday!

It is Foodie Friday! Be sure to visit our hostess Gollum

We are making Italian footballs.
We are all so busy, I am often looking for something quick and easy. I really don't give my children fast food. So this is a family favorite!
Shopping List:
Giant pasta shells
ricotta cheese
garlic
marinara sauce (of choice)
shredded mozzarella cheese
parsley
First boil shells, while they are boiling
mix ricotta cheese, parsley, and garlic in bowl
spoon mixture into shells

top with marinara sauce


top with shredded mozzarella and chopped parsley
bake at 350 until cheese is melted and bubbly


We have two desserts
one "treat" and one healthy treat

First,

spoon vanilla ice cream into footed glass
place a Madeleine and strawberry on the side
drizzle chocolate syrup






Now something a little more healthy and light:
Crush graham crackers into the bottom of a glass
layer vanilla yogurt
another layer of crushed graham crackers
top with crushed or chunk pineapple

OK, so that is it for this week!
Quick and easy meal, quick and easy dessert!
See you next week!
