Yummy New Recipes

I decided to try some new recipes that I had found on the internet and they both turned out pretty good! I thought I would share them with you guys. I liked them because the ingredients were things that I mostly had in my kitchen anyways. I hate the recipes that have all these weird ingredients that I don't want to go out and buy.

Lasagna Roll Ups

1 lb. ground beef
1 jar (26 oz.) spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup A.1. Original Steak Sauce (optional)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup (8 oz.) ricotta cheese
1/2 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
9 lasagna noodles, cooked, drained
2 cups KRAFT Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese, divided

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Brown meat in skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Combine spaghetti sauce and steak sauce. Remove half of the sauce mixture; stir into meat in skillet. Set remaining sauce mixture aside for later use.

MIX egg, ricotta cheese and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese. Spread each noodle with 2 heaping tablespoonfuls of the ricotta mixture. Top evenly with a scant 1/4 cup meat mixture and 2 heaping Tbsp. mozzarella cheese. Roll up each noodle, starting at one of the short ends. Place in greased 8-inch square baking dish. Pour remaining sauce mixture over noodles. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses; cover with foil.

BAKE 45 min. or until hot and bubbly.

Crock Pot BBQ Chicken

  • 3 chicken breasts (or 2-4 depending on your preference)
  • one 12 oz. bottle bbq sauce (that's 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup Italian dressing (I prefer Kraft Italian)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 T Worcestershire sauce
  • Rice to put bbq chicken on (unless you'd prefer to have it on a salad or in a white corn tortilla wrap)


1. Put everything in crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours (or high 3-4).
2. Shred chicken when there's 15-30 minutes left and put back in crockpot.
