Corkscrews Con Broccoli


Hey there everyone!! Thanks so much for being so patient as I switched my blog over to a self-hosted site. There are a few changes that you may notice right now with more to come…slowly but surely I am going to figure out this technical computer crap stuff. So far I have only wanted to pull my hair out 3,827 times, not bad! 😉

Anyway, I will be back on course with posting recipes, crafts and DIY projects. To kick it off is this recipe for Corkscrew Con Broccoli. The recipe on the back of the Mueller Sea Shell noodles inspired me to create this. I will tell you this, my kids ABSOLUTEY.LOVED.THIS!!!! I’m not even joking when I say that they were picking out the broccoli to eat instead of the noodles!…usually it is the other way around! Eat the noodles forget the veggies! I think that we will be eating this for breakfast, lunch and dinner at my house from now on! 🙂
