Paleo Fig Newtons

You can make these a lot neater then I did.  I actually ran out of flour so I was struggling a little but the clear wrap helped a lot.  Go to youtube and search for fig newtons and they will show you how to roll the dough.  I used a clear wrap on the bottom and the top of my dough.  It made it a lot easier to roll.  I can't wait to make these again!

Enjoy xoxo

I love my one pot meals especially when they are Paleo Italian dishes!  I am bringing in 2015 with my new Paleo Italian recipes and I hope you love them.  Thank you to Shop Rite in E. Hartford/Manchester, CT for the ingredients to make this delicious recipe.

I created this one because I love comfort Italian food and this has all of my favorite ingredients in one pie. I made this dish in a spring form pan which was great for entertaining - Made it a gourmet dish!  I also use my 9x10 baking dish.

This is also a great Sunday clean out  your refrigerator dinner.  Take all of your leftover veggies and add them to the meat sauce!  yummy...

Really Big Loaded Spaghetti Squash Lasagna
  • Time: 2 hours
  • Complexity: medium

Really Big Loaded Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

My disclaimer for this recipe! I am Italian and during the holidays especially I make everything BIG!  What if unexpected guests stop by!  What if family brings a friend!  What if I ran into someone at the grocery store and they are home alone for a holiday (that has really happened).  

These are some of the reasons there is always an extra dish waiting in the refrigerator on stand-by or when I make a dish - It's really BIG and LOADED with lots of good stuff.

Note!

  • You can make this really big lasagna and left overs are amazing!
  • You can cut ingredients in half to make an 8x10 size pan.
  • You can omit the ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan to make it dairy free
  • You can make the meat sauce, cut the recipe in half and freeze the remaining sauce for another time.

I love left overs and especially during our Hewfit challenge I am hungry more often.

Last night I made Chicken Scarpiello and packed up the extra chicken and chicken sausage and made this dish.  I will share a recipe for you to cook up chicken if you don't have left overs handy.  Actually, go and pick up a rotisserie chicken. That would be super easy!
