INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup – spinach
  • 1/2 medium – bell pepper, green
  • 1/4 cup, pieces or slices – mushrooms, white
  • 1/2 medium – onion
  • 1 medium – tomato, red

  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 1/2 cup – mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup – spaghetti or marinara sauce (use our recipe for even more vegetable goodness: Click Here)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Chop veggies (you will need two cups total of your choice of the vegetables listed) and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until slightly tender.
  2. Blend in a high-powered blender with marinara sauce.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Remove the dough from the package and place on a lightly floured work surface. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a 1/2-inch thick rectangle, about 12 by 10 inches.
  5. Begin by spreading about 1 cup of sauce over the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch boarder around the edges. If it seems like it needs more, then add 1 or 2 Tbsp. at a time. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Begin rolling the dough until you have one large roll. Slice into 8-12 slices and place in a greased muffin tin.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until rolls are golden brown and cooked through the middle.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Plan Your Meals for the Week”

For cooking newbies, shopping for exact recipes can prove helpful. But for us, busy working moms, it is more interesting to look for ingredients you can use in a variety of dishes, this practice can save you time and money. After all, if you buy an entire bunch of tomatoes for a single taco salad, you’re going to end up with a lot in the garbage. But if you buy a whole bunch of tomatoes, cook them and divide them up to use in pastas, in wraps and in salads. You can save on cooking time and keep from throwing away your money. Go into the store knowing how many servings of proteins, grains and vegetables you need. When you get home, get creative to use up everything you’ve purchased.
