Last summer I found a website, Multiply Delicious, and began subscribing to her menu plans. I love her recipes – they’re healthy, she uses fresh ingredients, and they’re easy to cook. Like everyone else, my life can get hectic and I love that her meals are fast to make – there’s really no excuse to run get pizza. The style of food is so similar to the way I’ve cooked – but healthier.
Because I rarely follow a recipe without switching things up – usually due to the fact that I haven’t bothered to go to the grocery store before I begin cooking – I played around with this recipe too. The original recipe is more of an Italian version using beef and tomato paste. Instead, I used ground turkey and some different seasoning, the Multiply Delicious version was fabulous – I simply wanted a little variety the next go round.
I don’t like cooked green bell peppers AT ALL, so it’s always red, orange, or yellow for me…..
Obviously the light was better outside – I don’t want you to think I’ve given up tablescapes for the sidewalk……
