Baked Pasta - an easy "to-go" meal

This afternoon I made a big batch of Baked Rigatoni (the store didn't have Ziti) so Rigatoni it was!  I brought dinner over to our friends after the birth of their second baby!  Congrats to Miss A and the fam!  I basically made two identical dinners and we ate the same thing!  This is a simple pasta dish with melted cheeses and lean ground turkey, baked until the cheese is toasty and golden brown.

I also made an attempt at homemade bread.  My hubby is much better at breads than me!  Instead of leaving it in the bread machine for the whole cycle, I opted to pull it out after the initial mix and do the rest by hand.  Knead, rest, knead, get the idea.  I think the bread turned out alittle under-done in the center (kinda doughy) but I had to pull it out before the tops burned.  Maybe a lower oven temp next time would work better.  :o)

For dessert I made brownies.  Since I can't bake without modifying it alittle, I substituted plain non-fat yogurt 1:1 for the oil, they were still quite tasty, I thought so anyway.
