Okay I do know schools vary on health issues but let me say what made me think of this...
I practically live off of The Schools food (I get free lunch because I'm poor... so I don't go out to eat, it saves money)
I lost five pounds in 6 days.... how? well those 6 days where spent in a hospital, now I'm a skinny guy (for all that don't know) for me it's hard to lose excess weight.
I was bedridden that whole time, no exercise... so how did I lose five pounds... must of been the food.
SO, my question is... why can't or won't the school have the same menu?
no idea if this exists already
Anyways! Redeemer recently promised us a recipe thread, but since she is filled with lies and scorpions, it falls to me to nobly stand in surety for her deceptive promises. Don't think your Gaelic charms will get you out of this one, Red. I'm onto you.
So anyways! Post recipes here plz. Also, they'd better be good, or all the king's horses and all the king's men won't be able to put you back together again. Here I will start.
1 package spaghetti
1 pound bulk Italian sausage, spiciness of your choice
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cans spaghetti sauce
1 small package shredded mozzarella cheese (or whatever kind you want, really; the grocery store sells a mix called "Italian," of mozzarella, asiago, Monterrey Jack I think, and probably something else)
-Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain.
-Crumble sausage into 1 1/2-quart casserole bowl, stir in onion, cook covered on 100% power in microwave 6 to 8 minutes or until no pink remains. Drain off fat. Stir in spaghetti sauce.
-Put half of the spaghetti in big dish (recipe says 10x6x2-inch). Layer with half of the sausage/sauce mix. Repeat layers. Cover with vented microwave-safe plastic wrap. Cook on high 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese. Cook, uncovered, on high, 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
Usually it all takes me about forty-five minutes to cook, start to finish. I usually use a couple tablespoons of olive oil in the water to keep the spaghetti from sticking together. You can get olive oil for relatively cheap at Trader Joe's, at least where I live, but if it's expensive you might not want to bother with that. I usually throw some garlic powder, oregano, and basil into the spaghetti sauce, and chopped up green onions (also known as scallions) into the sauce/sausage mixture. And recently I've apparently developed a fetish for putting parsley flakes on everything I cook that can even remotely be passed off as Italian. None of which is strictly necessary, but if you're making this for a date or something, parsley flakes on their food might impress them enough to dress up in Princess Leia's Jabba the Hutt slave bikini and make real all your sexy Return of the Jedi fantasies, or whatever it is you people do when you're not on the forum. So there's that.
