Potlucks, church suppers, parties.....this Betty Crocker recipe is the way to go!
I made this fast and easy dish for the last three family reunions and they scraped the crock pot clean! the little ones liked it too. I don't know why they call it Crock pot Ravioli when the recipe calls for bowtie pasta, but I know you'll love it! ingredients: 1-1/2 lbs. lean ground beef 1 onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, minced 1-15oz. can tomato sauce 1 can stewed tomatoes 1 tsp. oregano 1 tsp. Italian seasoning salt and pepper 10 oz. frozen spinach (I used fresh) 16 oz. bowtie pasta 1/2 cup parmesan cheese 1-1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded (divided) Directions: Brown ground beef with onions and garlic. Put in crock pot and add sauce, tomatoes and seasonings. Cook for 6-7 hours on LOW. Add the LAST 4 INGREDIENTS during the last 30 minutes of cooking and turn crock pot to HIGH. Add the spinach, pasta, parmesan cheese and 1 cup of the mozzarella and mix up really well. Add the last 1/2 cup of mozzarella to melt on top just before serving.
If you're like me, you get bored with the same bathroom decor...just a change of shower curtain and towels can freshen everything up a bit. I decided to switch to blue before Christmas so that I could use some new snowman towels I had purchased. Once the holidays were over and the decorations were put away, I needed something blue for the wall.
I often pick up frames for a couple dollars at the thrift store:
1 wood frame from the Salvation Army - $1.00 (discard the glass)
blue paint that I already had.
1 sheet of pattern scrapbook paper - $.50
I had a beige mat from another frame and I painted it white using water base craft paint. - $.50
3 die cut flowers using my bigshot for card making, but you could purchase flowers at your local craft store...
and some easy - peasy assembling = cheap diy artwork!
We eat a lot of chicken in our house so I'm always looking for tasty, easy to fix recipes.This one is a winner! It looks like a fancy dish but really takes only a few minutes to whip it up!....and oh so good!
Cajun Chicken Stuffed With Pepper Jack Cheese And Spinach - Serves:4
1 lb chicken breast, boneless and skinless
4 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded (you can use up to 6 oz)
1 cup frozen spinach thawed and drained (you can also use fresh cooked spinach)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons cajun seasoning
1 tablespoon breadcrumbs Salt and pepper to taste * optional: you can add half slices of pepperoni as I did in the photo below!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Make 4 or 5 slots into each chicken breast, being careful to not cut completely through.
In a medium bowl, combine the pepper jack cheese, spinach, salt and pepper. Combine the Cajun seasoning and breadcrumbs together in a small bowl. Brush each chicken breast with the vegetable oil. Fill the slots that you've cut into the breasts with the spinach - cheese mixture.. Sprinkle any remaining spinach and cheese on top of chicken (optional).
Place the chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet (for easy cleanup). Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
