Penne In Country Ragu

I’m pleased as punch to report to you all that I hit it out of the park with this penne dish last night!
Maybe it was because steaming hot pasta sounded good to my girlies, who were frozen solid after playing outside for an hour or so. Maybe it was because my husband had eaten a light lunch and was extra hungry. Or, maybe it was because No Thank You Boy has been minding his p’s and q’s due to Santa’s impending visit.

Spaghetti & Meatballs

You know Sandra Lee, right? The uber-perky blonde on the Food Network, who’s always planning a party or making dinner out of pre-packaged ingredients? I think her show is called “Semi Homemade”? Going to the outer limits with her attention to detail, Sandy features instructions for fancy ‘tablescapes’, themed flowers and party favors…even wacky window treatments to tie in with her meal d’jour. Some even require the use of a hot glue gun.
