Every time I think of the holidays, one of the first things that comes to mind is the warm and traditional taste and foods of the season. I love when my family puts a spin on traditional recipes to create the perfect holiday dish. In our house, we love pasta. It is one thing that we all five agree on. Spaghetti is a regular on our dinner menu and because we eat it so often, we like to mix it up a bit and do different variations.
Last night we made a delicious spaghetti in the crock-pot because we were in and out all day and dealing with sick kids. We didn’t have a lot of time to cook, so I browned the meat (we used beef last night, but sometimes use turkey to make it light and healthier) and threw it and the sauce in the crock pot to simmer along with a few seasonings. I waited to do the bow tie noodles until we were about ready to eat. I topped off the dish with some fresh basil and Stella Parmesan shredded cheese. This cheese is organic and tastes fresh and delicious. I love to buy organic when I can and This was so easy to pick up at Publix and is a brand I can feel good about.
