Hey, I wanted to let you guys know a few recipes the family has loved lately:
First off, we all LOVED the double Decker Portabello Sandwiches. SO tasty. However, you need to like both mushrooms and blue cheese. My kids are both kind of on the edge for both of those things but they loved the sandwiches. Also, they’re pretty decently healthy for you. BTW, we made these with baby bellas and “slider” type rolls. I thought they’d be easier for the kids to handle.
Speaking of rolls… I made potato rolls for the sandwiches, and boy oh boy are they light and fluffy. I even subbed in a couple of cups of whole wheat flour for the all purpose but they were still light as air. Yumm….
We also had Shannon’s delicious pasta for dinner, I can’t find the recipe anywhere but here’s the gist of it:
1 box cream cheese (8 oz)
1 box pasta (16 oz) — we used the rotini kind, but I’m sure whatever would work
1 can cream of chicken
1 can of chicken (thank you Costco)
1 envelope of dressing mix (ranch or italian, I did ranch)
Cook the pasta.
Soften the cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds in a large microwave safe bowl (I use the one bowl to serve it all in, so it’s a pretty big bowl)
Then combine the cream cheese and the chicken of chicken, chicken and ranch mix. I then popped that all in the microwave for a minute. If it’s kinda clumpy you can add milk (or some of the pasta water, I would think — I didn’t have to do that). Then, add pasta.
SO quick and easy, which is just what I needed tonight!
