Double Garden Burger

Okay so this is an easy recipe- barely a recipe just a good idea when you're in a rush. (Sort of how I felt today). It's under 300 calories and everyone in your family is bound to love it.

Double Garden Burger
4 Morning Star Garden Veggie Burgers
4 slices of Arnold's Select Thin Bread (2 sandwich pockets)
4 slices of American cheese
Optional: lettuce, tomato and onion

1. preheat the oven to 350
2. cook the burger in a convection toaster oven for 15 minutes (8 minutes on one side and 7 on the other)
3. then place each slice of cheese on top of the burger and cook for another minute.
4. squeeze some mustard on the bread and then place the cheesy burgers on the bread

Serve up!
Easy, right?

Sorry but tonight was so crazy- I didn't even get to take a picture.

Pesto Fettuccine

This is an excellent recipe. It's super easy and super healthy. This is perfect for the whole family because it's pasta and everyone for the most part loves pasta and the pesto sauce adds protein and vegetable. I promise you your whole family will love it. I had it on St. Patrick's Day (even though I'm not catholic) I thought it was fitting.

Pesto Fettuccine
Salt - as desired
2 cups of fresh tight packed basil
1 cup of extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves of fresh garlic
1 pound of fettuccine
1 cup of Parmesan cheese

Pesto Sauce
Combine the salt, basil, olive oil and garlic in a blender and mix until smooth and creamy (about 2 minutes)

Meanwhile boil the water and when it comes to a boil add in the pasta. Cook for 8 minutes - stirring occasionally. Drain the pasta. Add in the pesto sauce and then stir in the Parmesan cheese. Stir well and serve.
