Ingredients

  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese, or more to taste

  2. Place spaghetti squash cut-side down in prepared baking dish.

  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add Italian sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until sausage is brown and crumbly, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove sausage.
  5. Return skillet to heat; add 1 tablespoon olive oil, spring onions, and garlic, cook and stir until onions are softened, about 5 minutes. Add zucchini, red peppers, and Italian seasoning and continue to cook and stir until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.

M&m Peanut Butter Bars


I made a very easy recipe tonight.  My recipes have to be easy, or I would fall from standing too long.

The recipe is as follows;
Melt 1/2 cup butter in microwave.  Add 1 egg plus 1 cup brown sugar and stir . Mix in one-half cup peanut butter. Stir in 1 cup flour and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Fold in three-fourths bag of 11 ounce bag M&Ms, saving one third for later.

Line 8×8 pan with aluminum foil. Pour thick batter in pan. Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. It will be done when inserted knife tests clean upon checking.  Scatter
remaining M&Ms on top. Enjoy.

I took my finished product out of foil and placed on a plate. I also sprinkled confectioners sugar before placing final candies on top.
