Stuffed Shells

Well this was not the best thing I have ever made. I just do not have the patience to do all this.

2 chicken breast- cooked and shredded
7 1/2 ricotta cheese
2 tsp garlic powder
couple shakes of red peppers flakes
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 cup mozz cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oven to 400, spray baking dish with cooking spray
Mix together all ingredients from shredded chicken to salt and pepper
Spread 1/2 cup sauce on bottom of baking dish
Fill cooked shells with chicken mix and place filled side up in baking dish. Pour rest of sauce over shells. Sprinkle extra cheese on top.
Cover with foil and bake 15-20 minutes

What a great idea!

Have you tried Ziploc's zip n' steam bags? If no...omg you are missing out! I bought some after my mom told me how good and easy they were. I love them. I made potatoes one night. Its so easy it comes with a little book of different ideas for things you can make. You can go to the website and they have even more things to make. These are a must have in our house now!

AdamsWife's Chili

This chili is so good. It tastes just like my moms. I was a little worried about making. I was unsure how it was going to turn out. I got this recipe from Adamswife Its really something you can just throw together before work and come home to a nice warm bowl of soup!

1 lb hamburger
1 large can tomato sauce
1 large can chopped tomato's
1 can chili beans
1 pkgs chili seasoning

Cook the hamburger till its no longer pink
Add all the ingredients to the crock pot
Cook on low for 8 hrs.

Baked Ziti

This is probally one of my fav things to make. DH is not to hip on it. He is not a big pasta fan. But I LOVE it!

1 lb ziti noodles
2-26 oz jars spaghetti sauce (I use light)
6oz provolone cheese
1 1/2 cup sour cream
6 oz mozzarella cheese

Pre-Heat oven to 350
Cook the noodle till they are done
Add in both jars of sauce
Mix well

In a 9x13 baking dish, add about 1/2 the noodles
Layer with provolone cheese
Sour cream over the provolone cheese
The rest of the noodle mix
Top with mozz cheese
Cook for about 30


We have a quesadilla maker so its a little easier to make them.

1 lb of stew meat
sour cream

Cook the meat before hand.
On 1 tortilla spread sour cream over it like butter on toast
Lay it in the maker
Put some meat in the middle
Cover it with cheese
Place the other tortilla over it
Cook it for about 5 min. They are so good and fast.

Campbell's cheese soup

Cook the hamburger according to the taco package. Heat the cheese and pour over the chips.

Top with chicken and cover

Bake at 375 for 45 min or until chicken is done

Top with cheese and let stand for about 5-10 min

Pizza Bread

I got this from a fellow nestie (but I dont remember who sorry). I was okay

1 roll refrigerated french bread dough
Mozz Cheese
Egg Wash (1 egg white and water)
Pizza Sauce
Heat oven on 375
Roll out dough and
Spread pizza sauce over the dough
Sprinkle with mozz cheese
Carefully roll the dough in a cylinder shape
Pinch ends and top to seal
Brush top with egg wash
I put Italian seasoning and garlic salt on top
Make a few slices in the top of the loaf to allow air to vent
Bake at 375 for about 20 min
