It's Pizza... No, It's Quinoa... No, It's Pizzaquinoa!

So, I made this Pizza Quinoa casserole...
It was the PERFECT start to a 4 day weekend!  What flavour!  Excellent!
And, now since I have a bit more time to type tonight, I will take advantage of that and rant for a bit.  I think all of my friends, and I now that I think about it, have senioritis.  It's bad, and the year is not even half overwith yet.  I feel like my emotions inside are kind of rolling around, like a giant wad of tangled thread.  It's like of weird - I'm either laughing or about to cry or both.  I'll stop now, and move on to food...  so I don't get too depressed.

In a casserole dish, combine:

  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped and sauteed
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped and sauteed
  • 1/3 red bell pepper, finely chopped and sauteed

  • 2 tbsp nooch
  • a few drops liquid stevia
