It's possible that I was a mouse in a previous life based on my love of cheese. I always keep a few cheesy staples in my fridge for recipe inspiration or just to perk up a dish. And those Kraft bags of shredded cheese are such great time savers for quick weeknight meals. With all the holiday entertaining this month, we've been going through our fair share so I was delighted to find great savings on Kraft products at Target. In fact, Kraft is offering up to $20 in coupons towards their products there so check out the link at the bottom of this post for the savings.
1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
6 Tablespoons olive oil
3/4 Teaspoon salt
1 - 2 Tablespoons water, if needed
3/4 Cup ricotta cheese
1 Small onion, peeled and diced
2 Cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 Teaspoon dried oregano
1 Small bell pepper (color of choice), seeded and chopped
1/2 Cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 Cup butternut squash, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
1 Small zucchini, peeled and sliced
1 Cup cauliflower florets
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
3/4 Cup Kraft shredded mozzarella cheese (or more, to taste)
Make the pastry but combining the flour and salt in a bowl and stirring in the olive oil. Kneed with your hands just until thoroughly combined and add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water if the dough feels too dry or is crumbling. Press the dough into a 9" round pan. Because there is oil in the dough, you will not need to butter and flour the pan beforehand. Place in the oven and par bake for approximately 25 minutes or until the dough is a light golden brown. It will not shrink so you don't need pie weights with this dough.
From shopping for gifts to planning family dinners, it’s hard to keep up with all your holiday to-do’s.
