Recipes Requested

The Sesame Chicken Recipe was posted a little bit down this page. I have no idea how to link to it, so until I can figure it out, please just scroll down! Unless someone can explain how to do it...

I will include the recipe for Confetti Spaghetti here.

Confetti Spaghetti

1 pck. (12 oz.) spaghetti
1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 T. light brown sugar
1 t. salt
1 t. chili powder
1/2 t. pepper
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
3/4 c. shredded Cheddar cheese

Cook spaghetti according to directions (or 2 minutes less if you
like it al dente). Meanwhile in a large skillet, cook beef, green
pepper and onion over medium heat til meat is no longer pink. Drain.
Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce and brown sugar; stir. Add remaining
ingredients, except cheese, and stir. Drain spaghetti and add.

Transfer to a greased (9x13 inch) baking dish (you can freeze the
dish at this point for up to a month to cook at a later time).

Cover and bake 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese
and bake, uncovered, for 5 more minutes or til cheese is melted. If
you have frozen it for later use, thaw for a day in the refrigerator
before baking or allow about 10 more minutes to bake.

Serves 5-8

I left out the Chili Pepper because I was out, and I didn't think I would like that much of a spicy kick! And it turned out really well, I would add a little more salt, as it was a little bland, but it was still pretty yummy, and my husband LOVED it as well as my two year old!
