GRANOLA BARS

Dinner Party Services Ontario

2 cups rolled oats
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 cup chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix together the oats, flax, chia, sunflower seeds and sugar. Stir together the melted butter and corn syrup and pour over the oats. Stir to coat and then press into a greased 9×9 inch square microwave-safe dish. Microwave for 3 minutes, rotating halfway through. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top and microwave for 4 1/2 minutes more at 30% power. Spread chocolate evenly over top. Refrigerate for 20 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!

SPAGHETTI BOLOGNESE

1 jar of your favourite prepared pasta sauce
1 lb lean ground beef
1 large onion, diced
1 large carrot, grated
2 stalks celery, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 zucchini, diced
1 bell pepper, diced (red or green, your choice)
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
small pinch red pepper flakes
1 box whole wheat spaghetti

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook spaghetti. Meanwhile, brown beef in a large saucepan over medium heat, until no longer pink inside. Drain off excess fat and set aside. In the same saucepan, cook onions, carrot and celery 3-4 minutes, until slightly softened. Add garlic, zucchini, peppers and herbs. Cook approximately 5-7 minutes. Add pasta sauce and cooked beef and bring to a simmer. Simmer 3-4 minutes until hot. Serve over cooked spaghetti - with some grated parmesan cheese if you like!
