Okay, really, we don’t have the option of take out up here. I mean, we DO, but since it takes 20 min to drive and pick up the food it doesn’t really seem like a fast fix on supper plans. I keep seeing Dominos pasta bowls advertised and they look so good to me. So I decided to try and make my own. Here’s how it went. Oh yeah, and we don’t even have a Dominos anyway.
Step 1: Make bread dough, or use freezer dough. I of course prefer the homemade, but I’m a little spoiled that way. :)
Step 2: Cook meat, pasta, and sauce. You can use whatever combo sounds good. I made a very easy alfredo sauce found here. Cooked up some chicken and used the noodles I had on hand, a random mixture.
Step 3: Form bread bowls. I rolled mine in cornmeal and then pricked the bottom with a fork so they wouldn’t rise so much in the middle. Brush entire bowl with melted butter.
Step 4: Ladle in the sauce first, then the pasta, then meat. Heap it, because the bowl will rise around it. Spoon a little sauce on top so the meat is covered a little and top with desired cheese.
I used dough that had risen once and was ready to be made into loaves. By the time I got done filling it had risen a small amount…I didn’t want it to get too big, so I baked it right away. 350 I think it took 30 min or so. I forgot to time it, I just kept an eye on it.
Don’t even try and guess how many calories are in it. Only make it if you don’t care or are ready for a workout afterwards. Of course, after all the mess of making it, it could be considered exercise just to clean the kitchen!
