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!

Italian Chicken Soup recipe by The Pioneer Woman

TPW_9662Hey Y’all!

I just wanted to let you in on a favorite soup of mine!  I first tried this recipe last fall, and it is a true crowd pleaser! 🙂

On side note: the reason why I’m not posting the recipe right here & now on Sweet 16’s Country Kitchen, is because The Pioneer Woman has a full length version (with pictures and everything!) already posted on her website….and also, i am working on a crock-pot/slow-cooker version of the recipe!  So anyways!  Head on over there for her fabulous –Recipe for Italian Chicken Soup – and enjoy her amazing recipe! 🙂

Crock-Pot RO*TEL Chicken

Good-Morning Everyone! 

Thought i would share with you all a recipe that came from mom’s expertise experimenting in the kitchen a few weeks ago.  – Leave a comment for me if you find or think of any “perfections” that could be made to it!  😉

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. Boneless-Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1/2 cup Water (you don’t have to add this, but if you use only one can of RO*TEL’s you will probably need it.)
  • 2 cans Original RO*TEL Diced Tomatoes & Green Chiles
  • 2 cups (shredded/sliced) Colby Jack Cheese (you can use more or less depending on how you like it)

Directions: Now, there are  really two ways of making this recipe…Either way is fine, just your own preference which way you like best. -We do it both ways. 😉

#1.  Spread a can of the RO*TEL into the bottom of the crock-pot first, and THEN place your chicken in on top and cover with the water and second can of RO*TEL.

#2.  Put your chicken in the crock-pot, cover with water, and both cans of RO*TEL.

After you’ve assembled your chicken and toppings, Let cook in Crock-Pot on low/med. for about 6hrs.  Or if you need it done sooner, cook on High for about 3hrs.) – After the chicken is fully cooked, sprinkle the cheese right on top and let it melt there for a bit.   Serve over Rice or with Tortilla Chips and Sour Cream.    Serves approx. 6

Happy Cooking & Bon Appètit!
