Cheesy Nacho Ziti. Rocking New Music From Pine Barons.

Cheesy Nacho Ziti

Drink a lot tonight and if you have a clever and talented husband, tell him a cheesy joke and he will make a funny video like this one.

This is such a fun dinner.

Toss together ziti with a tomato-bean-chile-olive mixture and a bunch of cheddar cheese, then top it all with your favorite nacho garnishes. Ditch the utensils and use tortilla chips to scoop this yummy pasta meal into your mouth.

Friday kind of food deserves a Friday kind of song. I’m a gonna be alt-rocking out to this cool tune from Pine Barons.

The band states Hot Sauce as both their influence and interest, so douse your pasta well.
