new recipes

I've tried three new recipes this week. They have all turned out great, so I thought I would share!!

Crescent Chicken

2 cups of chopped boiled chicken
1 cup of shredded cheese
1 can of crescent rolls
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 cup of milk

Put the chicken in a mixing bowl then add the shredded cheese. Open the crescent rolls and separate the dough. Place about a 1/3 cup of the chicken/cheese mixture into each triangle. Pull the dough as best as you can around the chicken/cheese mixture. It doesn't have to be pretty.

Mix the can of cream of chicken and milk with a whisk. Pour over your chicken/dough bundles.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

And enjoy!!

Lasagna Roll-Ups

1 pound box, lasagna noodles
1/2 pound of italian sausage
2 cups of small curd cottage cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cups bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach
1 egg, beaten
1 (10 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Boil lasagna noodles as directed. Cook spinach in microwave for 3-4 minutes or until thawed. Place thawed spinach in a sieve and using a spoon, press out all of the liquid.

In a medium size bowl, mix spinach, italian sausage, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, bread crumbs, salt, and egg.

Once noodles are cooked, drain and place in cool water. Place ½ of the spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a two 9x13 glass baking dish. Take one noodle at a time out of the water and blot off with a towel or paper towel and lay the noodle on a cutting board or flat surface. Cut the noodle in half (so it is half as long). Spread a thin layer of the mixture all over one side of the noodle and starting at one narrow end, roll the noodle and filling mixture up. Repeat with all noodles. Place each noodle roll in the baking dish. I put 1o roll ups in each 9x13 dish. Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the roll ups. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Cover pan with foil. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until hot.
