Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon
I really liked this, but I did have to make some modifications because I had no spinach at home. Next time I'm following it to the letter and expect it to be wonderful! I added chopped onion to the bacon and garlic, and I used turkey bacon and whole wheat penne. I also stirred in about a 1/2c of shredded mozz once I'd tossed everything, and will probably do this or add parmesan every time I make it. I had seconds, which I almost never do, and my husband asked me to fix the leftovers for his lunch(added some leftover baked chicken cut up at his request). I will definitely use this recipe again!

World's Best Lasagna
I love the sauce! We have cut way back on meat in our house, so I've been trying other things with this, the last time I chopped fine 8oz of mushrooms (one kid doesn't like them) and put them in to bulk up the sauce base--Wonderful! I layered in a mix of sauteed zucchini and yellow squash, which was good, but I used too much. I always put my noodles in hard (and I don't spend the extra for the special noodles) and I have never had a problem, the lasagna comes out nice and firm, because the excess moisture soaks into the noodles. I doubled the ricotta and egg mix because the first time it wasn't enough in my opinion, this time I had more than enough, will probably try to find a happy medium. Also, both times I've made this I put chopped fresh spinach in the ricotta mix, I love it this was and kids don't complain about veggies. I freehanded shredded mozz the second time I made, it worked just as well as the sliced, but I probably did use about 3c, not 2. I would love to try this with the meat, and I may next time I need to take a dish somewhere, but for home this veggie version works well.

Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak
Excellent! I added the mushrooms as some others recommended. The steaks were very tender and juicy, even the kid that never eats steak ate a small portion of this and liked it. I did all my dicing and chopping while I had baked potatoes in the oven, cooked these once I had them out and resting. Very good, will keep this in mind for when we have adult company to impress!
