Comfort Food Any Time of Year

I know I’m not really still supposed to be making comfort food in the spring, right? But cheese!! Cheese makes me happy. So when I discovered Ivanhoe cheese is also made by Gaylea Foods, I thought I might give some a try and concoct a meal out of as much cheese as I wanted. We ended up with the best three cheese extra cheesy spaghettini bake, and we found a new family favourite.


Cheese, plus spaghettini, plus tomato sauce equals awesome meal in most kid’s eyes. Thank goodness for that, because let’s just say we have been in a rut this month. When every single meal is met with: “Um can I just have a peanut butter sandwich?” You know you are in trouble. Cheesy spaghettini bake to the rescue.

By the way did you know that March is also Nutrition Month? Cheese is an excellent source of protein that’s high in calcium and B12. And it is very low in sodium so that works well with my diet. This time around I gave Gay Lea’s Ivanhoe Cheese a try. There are numerous varieties of the Ivanhoe aged cheddar and specialty cheeses. Ivanhoe has a great reputation for high quality cheese products. Ivanhoe is the oldest cheese company in Canada. For this recipe we opted for some Monterey Jack and Old cheddar. I can’t wait to try naturally smoked Gouda next. Ivanhoe also offers Kosher and Halal varieties.

Here are the details on how to make this crowd pleaser.
