Stuff Shells Your Way for Sunday Supper

In the busy business of life, reaching for what you have on hand can be as good (or even better) as a plan ahead specialty meal. For my latest experimental concoction, I pulled out whatever flavors I wanted to include for this make on the fly cannelloni. The only criteria for inclusion was that the ingredient was already in the cupboard or fridge and a taste that I loved. Get all your available/must have ingredients together, stuff into the uncooked pasta shells.

Line up the filled shells in a baking dish, smother with salsa, sprinkle with cheese, bake for 30 minutes, and you have a delicious, grocery store trip free, one pot meal.

Sunday Supper: Meatless Meatloaf (Smells like the Real Thing)

A good friend recently had a baby. I was thinking of a go-to meal that would be easy for them to pop into the oven whenever they were hungry. Thinking ahead, I realized we might be as well, later on. I doubled this recipe to have two loaves, one to give away and one to share.

You know I love to substitute or change flavor profiles while I’m in the kitchen, so feel free to mix in whatever you have to hand: corn instead of mushrooms or barbeque sauce for ketchup.

The smell and the texture are exactly like those of the ‘real’ meat loaf.
