After a summer hiatus, I was happy to see the new season of Rachael Ray shows with new recipes to try. Of course I still have a lot of catching up to do since I was away for 2 weeks. As you know by now, I love cooking with ingredients that I already have on hand or can be shared between recipes so when I saw Mario Batali’s segment promoting his new American influenced cookbook, I knew I had to make this.
Ricotta Cheese – I bought 2 containers for my Baked Butternut Squash Pasta I have planned for this week so could easily spare a cup
Ground beef – I just made loco moco with half a pound and had the other half still leftover
Ground Italian Sausage – Again, bought some for the Baked Butternut Squash Pasta so grab some from that stash
Sliced bread – I picked up an extra loaf that I froze from the Farmers Market last month since they were selling 3 for $5 before closing for the night
Four slices may not seem like much but when loaded with ¼ lb of meat and ricotta per slice, it is filling.
