What the Beck???

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Cheesy Sausage Rigatoni

I figured out that there are 247 calories per serving, if 18 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I love, love, love this dish, because it is so flavorful and cheesy. The best thing about it is the Italian sausage. I also love making this in the summer, because I can walk out my back door and use fresh parsley right out of the garden. This one is a keeper! The calories are low, but I was totally full for the entire afternoon. Anything that can keep me full is totally worthwhile.

Here are my ingredients

I began by preparing the pasta

Next,  the onions

I added the meat to the onions
OMG the smell was fabulous

Add in the sauce

It is ready to enter the oven


Add the parsley for the finishing touch

Ready for my individual freezer servings

Bucket List Update

1933  A Farewell to Arms
       starring: Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes
       plot – they meet, got separated, and then eventually got back        together
       Who knew that Helen Hayes was so beautiful as a kid? I only
       remembered her from the movie Airplane as the little old                           lady stealing aboard the plane.
1937  A Star is Born
         starring: Janet Gaynor, Fredric March, and Andy Devine
       plot – a struggling actress gets help from an alcoholic movie                 star, but their marriage is in trouble when she becomes                 a bigger star.
       Okay, I must admit that I thought this was going to be like                         the Barbra Streisand movie, but this was different. I did like                 the movie, but found myself annoyed that he couldn’t be                 happy for his wife and went off and felt so sorry for himself.                 Really?
1941  Here Comes Mr. Jordan
       starring:  Robert Montgomery and Claude Rains
       plot – a boxer dies before he was supposed to and then gets a                 second chance to return to Earth.
         As I was watching the movie, I realized that I knew this movie.                     The remake was called Heaven Can Wait and starred Warren                 Beatty. The original was just as good as the remake!
1946  The Yearling
       starring: Gregory Peck and Jane Wyman
       plot: A poor Florida farmer’s son takes care of a fawn
       I have a love/hate feeling about this movie. The relationship                 between the boy and the fawn is so sweet. I had to close my                 eyes when the family dogs were fighting a bear. It upset me                 because I hate to watch animals fighting. I hated the ending                 because the fawn was killed just like Old Yeller.  I wanted                 everything to end happily – what a drag!
1955  Marty
       starring: Ernest Borgnine
       plot: two self-proclaimed unattractive people discover each                 other
       I really liked this movie, but I had a hard time trying to                 remember this character instead of thinking of Borgnine as                         McHale. It was a nice thought that there is someone out there                 for everyone.
