Bowtie Lasagna

I came across this recipe at the Tasty Kitchen blog and had to try it. Wow - it was good and I whipped it up in 20 minutes. YUM!

1 lb ground chuck
1 package bowtie noodles
1 jar (your favorite) pasta sauce (or homemade if you have time)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 cloves garlic; crushed (or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup sour cream

Cook noodles according to package directions.
Meanwhile, cook meat in a large skillet over medium-high heat; drain and return to skillet.
After noodles have cooked; drain and add to cooked meat. Drizzle with olive oil. Add sauce, garlic, seasonings, cheese and sour cream. Fold together and allow all to combine and melt together, over low heat for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
That's it. :)

Coconut Macaroons

Recently, I was at my favorite bakery in town buying a loaf of fresh bread when I smelled this sweet cookie. I usually would not buy coconut macaroons - I just never think about them. These cookies smelled so good that I had to buy one. Immediately after we devoured the cookie, Chad said I need to learn to make them. So, I did. I found an EASY recipe here and they were so good!

1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325.
In a small bowl, combine the coconut, sugar, flour and salt. Stir in the egg whites and vanilla; mix well.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack.
