What I ate Wednesday- The last of the Pumpkin Hummus

So last week for my first WIAW post, I posted about 3 things I did with pumpkin hummus. But after that there was still a little hummus left, and I was sleep deprived trying to shift back to day shift so...
On Friday I invented a casserole and threw in some pumpkin hummus. I'll call it....

Sleep Deprivation Casserole
  • Approx 3 cups cooked whole wheat pasta (I used Rotini because its my favorite!)
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • Sauteed broccoli (I used frozen, tossed in a pan with olive oil, pepper and garlic until defrosted)
  • Caramelized onions
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
Toss together, spread into a casserole dish coated with cooking spray. Top with:
  • Shredded low fat mozzarella mixed with a little Parmesan cheese

Bake at 350 covered for 20 minutes (to heat through) then uncovered for 10 minutes (to melt cheese).

It was surprisingly tasty for being a product of my tired brain, I ate some for lunch today and it was still good!

Tonight I made a giant salad:
  • Romaine
  • Chopped onion and bell pepper
  • Sliced avocado
  • Chopped chicken (had some leftover from the casserole above)
  • Blue cheese
  • Cranberry Balsamic dressing
  • I added a serving of parmesean garlic pita chips as a snacky side.


  1. I love casseroles - they are so easy and last so long and you can put just about anything in them. YUM.

  2. I totally agree. Just need some carbs, some veggies, and some egg or cheese to hold it all together and bam! Dinner. And then leftovers for a week.
