Okay RB we'll snap you out of it-we've all been there and you have lots of resonsibility-also a lot of love.

Say I always use a carrot when cooking red sauce-sweetens and removes acid.

Load those calzones with lots of ricotta and mozerella.

Get rid of acid in tomato sauce by simmering the tomato sauce for a couple of hours.
Hey, Kelsie! I'm a so sorry for the cheapo spaghetti sauce, eh? Whattaya gonna do, I am from-a Oklahoma! A thousand and one apologies.

I am probably going to assault a lot of cook's with my peasantry slash bachelor style cooking. I am like Lacy, I learned to cook at an early age and have been cooking since around age 13.

I was one of the first boys to take cooking class in 9th grade. Took it for 4 years straight! I never use recipes or measure. My specialty is meat, MEAT, and MORE MEAT. I am known for having ONE ITEM for a meal and no sides or veggies in sight.

Actually, finding a good spaghetti sauce is near impossible, because both Don and I are diabetics. Pasta itself really raises our blood sugar and adding sugar to the sauce or having garlic bread really makes my sugar go up.

As a matter of fact, my eyes are affected and my vision get blurry when my sugar goes above 290.

RedBird-those jarred sauces are loaded with sugar.

You're better off making your own - easy and we can help. Marinara is the quickest easiest sauce. A thicker heartier gravy had beef, sausage,pork and slow cooked for 4-5 hrs.

You give yourself a double whammy with jarred sauce and pasta.

Okay Bette this is for you:

Glass trifle bowl (I use an old glass punch bowl).

Package of chocolate cake mix-made in a 9x13 pan, cooled, cut in squares.

Take the pieces of cake, cut cross-ways and put a layer in bottom of bowl.
Top with a layer of chocolate pudding.
Layer of Cool Whip
Layer of crushed Kit Kats.
Repeat layering cake,pudding,Cool Whip,KitKats and top with Cool Whip and more crushed KitKats.
Cover, refrigerate-best if made early in the day.
Serve with a BIG spoon to dig in.

Hmmmmm, maybe I'll wait and fix it for my 'Patio Party'!! We had our back porch enclosed last month and next week we're having a patio with a built-in firepit built. When it's finished, we're having a patio party here with some friends and Chocolate Lasagne would be perfect to go along with the 'smores!! Gotta break in the firepit by roasting marshmellows, right??
