Cheesy Carrot Lasagna

..

Happy Monday!  This is one of my favorite (comfort-food) type of meals. It’s super easy to throw together, and you can really change things up depending on how you like it…I’ve added things like horse-radish before, but again it just depends on how you prefer you meal to taste : )

Ingredients:

  • 1 box No-Bake Lasagna Noodles
  • 1 large jar Alfredo Sauce
  • 2 cups diced Carrots
  • 2 cups diced Zucchini
  • 1 medium size onion, chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped Kale
  • 16 ounces Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 bag /3 cups Mozzarella Cheese
  • Salt & Pepper

Directions: Starting with the noodles, Layer everything on-top of each other. Cover with Mozzarella, then Bake @ 350 degrees for approximately 45 minuets.

Crock-Pot Directions:  Just do the same layering thing with all the ingredients that you would normally do, but instead just put it in your crock-pot and then set it on high for 3-4 hours (or until completely heated and bubbling)

Tip: Times in cooking may vary depending on the brand of crock-pot you own, so just adjust your cooking time if you know from experience that it will take more or less time. 🙂

Bon Appètit!

Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal

Hey Everybody! I was board of my “normal” kind-of oatmeal i was eating every morning, so i created a scrumptious new version that is a cinch to throw together!  It’s intensely rich and creamy, so it tastes like a real treat! 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup quick Oats
  • 1/3 cup Whole Milk, Almond or Coconut Milk
  • 1/4 cup Yogurt (plain, or flavored)
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese

Optional Ingredients:

  • Egg Nog, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Pumpkin Pie spice
  • 1 small Carrot (shredded)
  • Jam, Preserves, fresh or dried Fruit
  • Coconut, Chocolate, Almonds, Pecans, Walnuts, etc.
  • Maple Syrup, Sugar, Stevia or Honey (sweeten to taste- if needed)

Directions: Beat together all the dairy ingredients, then once you get it to a smooth texture, add your oats, and any other ingredients you would like incorporated, scoop into a dish, cover, and let refrigerate at least 5 hours before devouring!  🙂

Tips & Extra’s :

  • I perfer to use quick oats as apposed to whole/rolled oats, but since that’s just MY preference, you can use whatever you like! 
  • I make this at night before i head to bed so that first thing in the morning i can just grab it out of the fridge on my way out the door to work!  
  • This is a really creamy and dense oatmeal, so don’t think you’ve made it wrong if it appears to have the texture of that similar to a big gluey mess! lol  
  • I find it easier to store this recipe in Mason canning jars, but then again….that might just be me! 🙂
