Even-ing the Score

So here’s the score:  This Week-20  Me-0

That’s right.  This past week Kicked. My. Butt.

So Friday night I was too tired to cook, too tired to go out (even though the hubby offered and with shopping!), and too tired to think.  But I had leftover sauce, a french baguette, and some mozzarella.  We were all set for a quiet night in with a little comfort food in the form of pizza bread!

The Sauce (I had made this for spaghetti on Wednesday so I just reheated it for the pizza bread):

1 tube italian turkey sausage, browned

1- 32 oz can crushed tomatoes with basil

2 Tbs tomato paste

onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, and italian seasoning….all to taste (I know it sounds like I’m cheating but with the turkey sausage you don’t need much.  Just depends on your palate.) Once the sausage is browned add the tomatoes and paste and seasoning and simmer until the flavors have blended.

The Pizza Bread:

2-3 cups sauce

1 sourdough french baquette

sliced mozzarella cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Slice the baguette into thirds and then slice each third in half.  You will end up with 6 pieces.  (We had four pieces because we ate the other two with the spaghetti!)  Put the bread on a baking sheet and spoon the sauce on top. Then add the cheese and bake for 10-15 minutes until the bread is crusty, the sauce is heated, and the cheese is melty.

It was really quick, really easy, and really good!  There’s nothing like a little comfort food, a hot bath, and a relaxing night by the fire to de-stress!  (and please ignore the yucky pan…it’s clean, I promise…but if anyone knows how to remove those baked on spots let me know!!)~s
