Cheesy Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza Pasta

 This post contains affiliate links, please read full disclosure HERE.

Between work , carpools, school , extra curricular activities and family fun , I am sure that as a mom meal planning is always on your mind. What to serve for breakfast , lunch and dinner. Not to mention, school lunches. I am always on the hunt for easy weekday meals. Pizza and pasta may not always win the most the healthiest food category but it is definitely one of my family's favorites. Besides, who does not love pizza and pasta!

This recipe is flat out delicious! I used Rawspicebar's Sun-Dried Pizza Sauce and Pizza recipe. However, I used it on a pasta instead. What I love about this recipe is that you can make the sauce before hand. Making it ahead ( maybe on weekends) will save you time during the busy week days. The sauce is so tasty, you can not just use it as a pizza sauce but also as a pasta sauce or a dipping sauce. One of the things that I certainly love about the Monthly Spice Box is that recipe cards are included. So when you are not in a "experimental mood" you can follow the recipe given. I have previously written a review about RawSpice Bar ( recipes included), you can read it HERE.

The portion sizes of the spices are all perfect. Recipes are NOT hard to follow at all. If you love to eat out  and you are always open for new taste, why not try the monthly spice subscription.

1 RawspiceBar's Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza Spices

The Beginners Bible Giveaway

Both of our girls have owned a copy of The Beginners Bible.  They got a small copy so they can carry it themselves when they go to their Sunday school. Even though it is really not required for Preschoolers to bring their own Bible, we wanted them to get used to it. It is also the Bible that they  read on mornings. While our 7 yr old daughter has moved to a higher step level of Bible ( Lucy is now using THIS BIBLE ) , I was excited to get a redesigned copy of The Beginners Bible.

As expected, The Beginners Bible is still the best Bible for children 6 and under. The illustrations are cute and right on the spot. Children read first not through words but by the illustrations first. Enticing  large and artful pictures will keep them interested. Colorful and beautiful which makes every story more engaging. The stories are related simple for young kids. Words are not too "big" for young kids to understand. I like the big letters because you can also point out words  for  pre-readers.  It is the perfect Bible to introduce to children to what the Bible is, the great stories and characters of the Bible.




About the Bible :
The Beginner’s Bible® has been a favorite with young children and their parents since its release in 1989 with over 25 million products sold. Now it’s redesigned with fresh new art that will excite children for many more years to come. Full of faith and fun, The Beginner’s Bible is a wonderful gift for any child. The easy-to-read text and bright, full-color illustrations on every page make it a perfect way to introduce young children to the stories and characters of the Bible.

Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this is in accordance with FTC guidelines.
