Cooking on a Sunday - Smackeroni & Tortilla Pie Edition

I'm currently in rehearsals for my new show, which means Joey & I need lunches and dinners for the week. While I trust him to cook on his own, I know that making meals for him is more nutritious and delicious and it keeps things interesting for me and ensures that we spend less money on fast food as well as groceries.

Last week I made my famous lasagna and the Ladle in Red chili from ESBM. This week I figured I would post the recipes I made as well as some pictures of the results.

First up...
Smackeroni & Cheese from ESBM


We had some for dinner and it was so good that Joey went back for seconds. This recipes is easy, cheesy and delicious!!


I love this recipe and it's so easy to make. I took some pictures as I went through the process of layering this yummy vegetarian dish
This is what the filling looks like when it's all mixed together in the pan. You've got two types of peppers, roasted corn, tomato sauce spices and two types of beans. I love how colourful it is!!
This is the first layer of the pie. That's a whole wheat tortilla on the bottom with a layer of the veggie mix and then a cheese layer (I didn't have mozzarella so it was only cheddar with a bit of parm mixed in. You repeat this step 3 times.
Here is a picture of the finished product!

I like to serve a piece of this pie with a dollop of sour cream and salsa with a green salad on the side. The leftovers taste awesome too!
My Sunday is starting to become a tradition and I'm really starting to enjoy doing it. A couple hours in the kitchen means great meals for the week and happy bellies and wallets!
