Simple Charming Autumn

 

“The world is ruled by letting things take their course.”

Lao-Tzu

 

Hello!

 

 

Fall has arrived…🌻well almost

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Something which reminds me that…

 

 

summer is coming to an end…

 

 

are the flowers…

 

 

in my garden

 

 

 

 

These beautiful orange flowers ( I don’t know their name… do you?) begin blooming late summer into early Fall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are so beautiful and present a moment of stunning seasonal inspiration.

 

 

 

 

 which allows me to bring the outdoors in and create…

 

 

what I call simple charm for Autumn in a sweet cottage

 

 

by the sea…

BAKED ZITI

Joe loves pasta. That being said Joe chose this weeks date-day meal. He has been training for a marathon (this weekend) and pasta is a great carb for runners. I’ve been the beneficiary of his wonderful choice of food. The good news is you don’t have to be training for a marathon to enjoy this easy…yummy…three cheese layered delight. However…I can’t promise you that you won’t need to walk around the block a few times. sorry about that

 

 

1 (16 ounce) package ziti pasta

24 ounces ricotta cheese

 

 

1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese

1 egg, beaten

 1 (32 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

 

 

DIRECTIONS 

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add ziti and cook for 8-10 minutes or until al~dente; drain and rinse.

 

 

In a medium bowl, mix ziti, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg and 1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce.

 

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

 

 

Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish and spoon in ziti mixture. Top with remaining spaghetti sauce, followed by Parmesan cheese.

 

 

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes…

    I really love all the Fall colors celebrated in your post especially the orange of the flowers and the reds in the baked ziti.

    Those flowers are Crocosmia and they are corms. They look beautiful in your garden and as cut bouquets in your home. I have one small one that I found blooming here in this new-to-me home/garden. It’ll take a while but I am looking forward to them spreading! The pasta dish looks delicious… ;0)
