I was trying to come up with something different for dinner tonight. This is what I decided on. It's not really new, but I haven't made it in months and months. I have all the ingredients on hand except the ziti. Gonna substitute regular macaroni. It should work. This is a Mr. Food recipe that I've tweaked a bit for my family's tastes.

BAKED ZITI

1/2 lb. ziti
15 oz. ricotta cheese
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
1/2 lb. ground beef
1 jar (28 oz.) spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and stir in ricotta cheese and 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese. Brown ground beef in skillet and stir into spaghetti sauce. Spread 1/2 of spaghetti sauce mixture into the bottom of a 13x9x2 baking dish coated with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon in ziti and cheese mixture. Top with remaining spaghetti sauce mixture. Sprinkle with parmesan and remaining mozzarella. Bake at 350oF for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and hot through.

Well, here's something I never thought about. Some of our international friends don't have access to things like boxed macaroni and cheese mix! So I'm going to post a recipe for basic macaroni and cheese that can be substituted instead of using a boxed mix for the Tuna, Mac and Cheese recipe. I hope you can get canned cheese soup.

MACARONI AND CHEESE

16 oz macaroni
1 can condensed cheese soup
1 cup milk

Cook macaroni according to package directions, drain. Stir in soup and milk. Stir over low heat until well blended and hot through. Makes 6 servings.

Welcome, everyone, to our new recipe exchange community. I'm really excited about this community and I hope everyone contributes lots of great recipes. Of course, recipes are only one aspect of the cooking process. So everyone should feel free to use this community as a place to share ideas and information. And, if you have a question, someone here will probably know the answer!

There is a link on the community's main page which should be able to help with things like the conversion of measurements to/from U.S. Standard or Metric, etc.

Recipes will be archived in the memories section in much the same way as would be found in a cookbook to make finding the perfect recipe easy.

I promised someone the first recipe posted here would be easy enough anyone who can boil water would be able to do it. It's not very hobbity, but I can't imagine a hobbit turning it down!

TUNA, MAC AND CHEESE

1 box macaroni and cheese, any variety
1 can tuna, drained
1 cup frozen english peas, thawed
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (or to taste)

Prepare macaroni and cheese according to package directions, adding english peas to the pasta 4-5 minutes before the end of the cooking time. Stir in garlic powder and tuna.

Serve with a green salad and fruit for a quick and easy meal.
