One day! Squeee!!!!
Honesty time: I don’t have a costume. I know I know. I plan to be Nyan Cat, so I’ll probably just buy some cat ears and pin colourful ribbons to my grey clothes and call it a day.
That’ll work right?

#pinmakeeat 9 | Squirrelly Minds - Baked Parmesan Spaghetti from How Sweet It Is

Baked Parmesan Spaghetti from How Sweet It Is

Yes, I am fully aware that the ninth installation of #pinmakeeat was disgustingly laden with pasta. We aren’t usually huge pasta fans around here, but I think the ease of it (and let’s face it, its cheapness) was particularly attractive to us this month. And you know what? We really enjoyed it. I now kind of see what all the hoopla is about pasta. It’s delicious!

One Pot Creamy Pumpkin Pasta: I was sold at ‘one pot’. The less dishes the better. I loved how easy this dish was to put together, but I think I must have grabbed a sugary can of pumpkin pie filler rather than just pumpkin pie mush as it was much sweeter than I would have liked. I definitely want to try it again because hello, it’s pumpkin pasta.

Portabello Gouda and Kale Pesto Grilled Cheese: I’m a fan of any grilled cheese. Aside from the horribly processed kind, you stick whatever cheese between two slices of bread and slap it on the grill and you can call me a happy girl. But guys, this grilled cheese was an explosion of flavours. I hate saying that because it’s so cliche, but it’s completely true. What really kicked this sandwich into high gear was the kale pesto – it was so damn good. I want to make a massive jar of it and slap it on every single meal.

Spinach and Feta Crock Pot Lasagna: Just like I’m drawn to the words ‘one pot’, I also love anything that has to do with a slow cooker. I didn’t really think of the possibility of making a lasagna in the slow cooker, but was it ever the best smell to come home to. It only requires a few hours in the slow cooker so it’s not one to start before you go to work, but it’s definitely the perfect (oh so cheesy) meal for those weekends when you’re running errands all day.

Skillet Lasagna: We tried this one out because it was different. The layers got a bit messy but my favourite thing about this lasagna was the fresh basil leaves. It really gave it a nice kick.

Baked Parmesan Spaghetti: We also tried this one because it was different – lasagna and spaghetti swapped cooking methods this month folks. I like the idea of throwing pasta in the oven and letting it bubble away. We didn’t add nearly enough tomato sauce to this one. I think it if we had we would have enjoyed it more. And it would have been incredible if we had that same butt load of cheese melted on top….mmmm cheese.

Here’s hoping for a healthier #pinmakeeat 10!
