Happy Thursday! The weekend is SO close...I can smell it! :) is my dilemma...I am in a recipe funk! I have tons of recipes and love making them all....but I need some new fun, deliscious ones! I feel like I am making the same 'ol thing over and over and OVER again!

This is where YOU come in! I want YOU to send me your favorite recipe! You can either comment on my blog with it or email it to me at ! In return for your gracious emails full of recipes.... I am going to pass on one of my newest favorites to you!

I came across this show on the Discovery Health channel about two months ago. It's called Cook This, Not That with Sam Zien. He's a fun little guy that shows great ways to make favorites! He made this pasta and I immediately went out to the store and bought all of the ingredients! It is SUPER easy and only takes about 10-15 minutes to make....gotta love that! With that being said, write down this recipe and make it TONIGHT! Let me know what you think!!!

Spicy Fatboy Sausage Pasta


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 lb spicy Italian sausage (casings removed and crumbled) (it's also good with chicken or shrimp!)

4 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 lb penne pasta

3 tablespoons butter

1 cup whipping cream (i put in an extra 1/2 cup to make it more saucey!)

1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

-Heat oil in hot pan, and add sausage, garlic and red pepper flakes.

-Break apart and cook until no longer pink and add cream — simmer on low.

-Add pasta to boiling water — when the pasta's ready, so is the sausage.

-Drain pasta and add to sausage.

-Add butter, parmesan cheese & parsley — mix well.

-Sprinkle with a little more cheese of course and serve.

-Serves 6.

Chicken Pot Pie (I loved this recipe!)

2 cans of Veg All Mixed Vegetables, drained
10 oz of Chicken (canned, cooked, or leftover rotisserie*)
1 can cream of chicken soup
Herbs of your choice (I used Oregano)
Salt & Pepper
2 9in. pie crusts from the refrigerator section ( I used a pie shell and one of the crusts as the top)

Preheat oven to 375 F.
In medium mixing bowl combine the first five ingredients.
Place mixture in one the pie shells (If you use frozen crust you should prebake it for about 10min) Top with remaining pie shell. Pinch to seal and prick top with fork.

Bake for 50-60 minutes until crust is golden brown.

Serve and Enjoy!
