So let’s invite friends over, cook and share meals to be ready when your family get’s hit with the nasty colds that can lurk this time of year! Definately be ready to share #PedialyteSingles with your friends as well. Here are my ideas..
1 pound ground beef
16 oz Spaghetti Sauce
2 cups pasta any kind will work cook and drain
1/2 cups milk
3 cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded (1 cup set aside)
First boil the pasta noodles while cooking noodles, cook the ground beef. After noodles are done cooking, drain and return to pot. Mix all ingredients except for the last cup of cheese and stir. Pour into a deep dish 8×8 pan, top with remaining cheese. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Want to freeze?
Eliminate the baking part. Instead, cover and freeze. To serve: Thaw. Bake covered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, if frozen bake for about 1 hour.

Other ideas to have on hand should include Chicken Noodle Soup, Frozen dinners, Ramen noodles would work as well. A well stocked pantry is a must, and easy to do especially for couponers like me.
Let’s hope we don’t become victims this winter. Hand washing works well, so wash those hands! Stay well my friends. Being sick is no fun.
