Sometimes you make a dish that everyone around you goes, huh?
Presenting Pizza Guts! I see you ogling, and gazing and MmmmMMMmm over this dish. Or you’ll be like my mom, “huh?” “That sounds disgusting, please don’t name a dinner guts…”
The story unfolds like this. You can blame my father. He told my mother he wanted chicken, tomato sauce, veggies and pasta noodles for supper. I thought, that sounds good. I’m going to make myself the same thing, minus the pasta.
I cook very much like my father. I throw things together and hope for the best. Ohhh this dish turned out great! I started with diced bacon. Most excellent decision! I sautéed it with chopped onions, assorted peppers, mushrooms, garlic and chicken with a generous dash of salt & pepper. Right off the bat I was going for a pizza taste.
Then I opened a can of tomato sauce and poured enough into the pan to cover everything. At this point I was taste testing some of it. It was good! It was so good I decided this was a blog post recipe. Out of the blue, I thought, “I need “noodles” for this recipe.” I didn’t have zucchini but I had A LOT of cabbage… I ran to the other fridge, grabbed the leftover cabbage from my raw sauerkraut experiment. I sliced thick noodles from it. Took the “pizza” sauce out of the pan and threw the cabbage into the pan drippings. Oh my!
That was a good idea! I assembled it with the cabbage noodles on the bottom and the pizza sauce poured over it. I stood looking at my creation and named it, Pizza Guts!
