Little Chef

I think a Little Chef has invaded my house...when Daddy took Charley to a large cat animal sanctuary this morning, my pixie, Laney, decided she wanted to make something special for Daddy, who eats cheese and meat and almost anything edible :)

Here is my Little Chef in the kitchen...

She made "Pizza Pasta", like a good Itralian girl...
- 12 oz cooked pasta
- 1 bell pepper, sliced
- 26 oz jar of pasta sauce
- 2.5 oz packaged sliced pepperoni (cut into small pieces)
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 F. After the pasta is cooked, combine it with the bell pepper, pasta sauce and 3/4 of the pepperoni. Mix it in a large bowl and transfer it into a lightly oiled 2 quart baking dish or stone, top with cheese and remaining pepperoni. Cover and bake for 30 minutes.

And voila! One happy Daddy and one happy Little Chef :)

  1. Hi Jen, what a proud, accomplished chef and happy looking daddy! We had a relative visiting from Italy this last week. We ensured we gave her many delicious meals that she would enjoy and especially lots of homemade pasta! We have a budding chef here too. At the moment he likes to prepare macaroni cheese and also mushrooms, mushrooms and mushrooms!
