So the hubby is still hanging in there with me, at least on the vegetarian front. One of his favorite dinners is baked ziti. I decided to substitute the meat for spinach. He would have preferred plain baked ziti, but I prefer to add vegetables whenever and wherever I can when I cook at home. I KNOW he makes bad food choices when he travels and since he travels approximately 40 weeks a year, I have to make every home cooked meal count!
I used frozen chopped spinach, which I defrosted in the fridge overnight then drained. Once the pasta was cooked, I tossed it with the spinach tomato sauce, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, sauce, and garlic. I baked it for 40 minutes, added some more mozzarella cheese to the top of the dish and baked it another 10 minutes. I loved it and I will be taking it for lunch at least two days this week. The hubby was OK with it, this time he didn’t complain about the lack of meat, just the addition of spinach! Progress folks, progress.
