I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

My Macaroni and Cheese

454 g (16 oz) box penne pasta

olive oil
1 onion
1 celery stalk (optional)
1/2 green or red pepper
2 slices ham or salami

28 oz can tomatoes (diced or whole and mashed)
1/4 cup 10% cream
1 tsp oregano
black pepper to taste

1  -  1  1/2 cups shredded mozzarella or cheddar

While you are cooking the penne, heat some olive oil in a frying pan.  Add chopped onion (I had some red onion here too), red pepper and celery if using it. Lightly fry. When  just golden toss in chopped ham or salami and turn off the heat. 
Mash the whole tomatoes
and mix with cream and oregano.
Add the fried stuff and the cooked pasta.  Mix well.
Put the mixture into an oiled 2 quart baking dish, top with cheeses and bake uncovered in a 350F oven for 30 minutes.
Cool 5 minutes.
Serves 4
