On Monday I wrote about the Amish cookbook I received that included recipes from the Merchants of Shipshewana, Indiana. I do believe this cookbook will be one of my favorites and I love it because it includes recipes with simple ingredients. Most of the recipes are easy to prepare. I really do think that is because the people that submitted the recipes have their own businesses and do not have lots of time to prepare meals for their families.
When I saw the recipes I am sharing with you today, they really peaked my curiosity. I have never heard of Pizza Spaghetti. You cook the pasta and put it in the bottom of a pan and add pizza toppings. Then you bake it in the oven. I have had baked spaghetti and I think it is wonderful. And believe me, I have had my share of pizza too but I have never thought of combining them.
Don’t you think this would be a great recipe for children to help you prepare? I think it would stimulate their curiosity.
Somehow when I visited the Amish country this past summer, it stirred memories of my southern upbringing. I remember families gathering together for church on Sunday and then joining together for simple meals. That is what the Amish people were doing on Sunday. Then when we returned on Monday the women had washed their clothes and hung them out on clotheslines. I remember clotheslines too.
Great memories and now the Amish are eating Spaghetti Pizza. Who knew?
Thanks for stopping by.
