Rainbow Rotini & Onion Pasta Bake

I had some leftover cooked rainbow rotini pasta that I needed to find something to do with. I googled a little bit and found this recipe over at I used this as the base for my recipe and tweaked it to make it my own. 

First I already had my rainbow rotini pasta cooked (about 3 cups).

I also sauteed a sliced onion in 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

I mixed 1 beaten egg and 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese with the pasta.

I put that in a casserole dish and baked at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

For this next part you can use canned pasta sauce or make your own.
I didn't have any spaghetti sauce so I improvised. I mixed a small can of tomato sauce, a can of tomato paste, a bit of water (to thin it out), some garlic powder, and oregano.

I topped the baked pasta with the sauce, then with another cup of cheese.

Bake this at 350 degrees for another 15 min or so.


It was really good! I couldn't help going back for seconds :)

New Design!

So the design has actually been up for about a month, just needed to finish a few small details. Finding the time for this, however, has proved to be challenging! But it's all finished now!

I've changed up my header. I now have 2 rows of sections.

The top row is just general pages. I moved all my buttons to one page to reduce clutter on my blog.

The second row is full of different categories you can find on my blog. I've also added sections for stories about my everyday life and for my NICU nursing experiences.

So..... What do you think?
