This is one of my favorite things to order at an Italian restaurant when I see it's on the menu!  Add a marinara sauce with shredded cheese and I'm so there!  I'm just wondering how hard it would be to make them.  I mean they use the word, Simple.  So it's gotta be simple to do .  Right?

Menu Plan Monday ~ October 8, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing and unplugged weekend! We took a bus ride to Summerlin, a planned community outside of Las Vegas, on Saturday. It's a beautiful location with manicured lawns, gorgeous homes and clean streets.

The bus took us pass the JT Shiners' golf tournament which was in full swing! The streets were busy with pedestrians and traffic!
Thanks to Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Monday!
