Quinoa Enchilida

I found this simple, healthy and delicious recipe on Damn Delicious and made a few tweeks using the Enchilada sauce from another website called, Budget Bytes(I just substituted the chili powder with paprika.) Also, I just used the No Name Brand of Shredded Nacho Cheese and a mozerrella ball.

Orzo Chedder Tuna Spinach Casserole

Okay, I made this today on the fly. Here is what I did:

-Cooked orzo as per instruction
-In a separate pot, added milk, butter, 1 tsp of dijon and some nutmeg (bring to a boil), add flour and then grated chedder and mix until thick (cheese sauce)
-Open and drain a can of tuna
-Wash some spinach.

When the cheese sauce was done, I added everything in an mixed.

So delicious.

Although, next time, in a separate pan, I would fry the spinach with some green onions and some celery before adding it. since it will be more soft and wilted.

Enjoy!!!
