Asparagus, Chicken, and Pecan Pasta

Reviewed: May 28, 2015
Instead of starting with oil and garlic, I cooked the veggies in Land O'Lakes Garlic & Herb Sauté Express. I used two cups of dried bow tie pasta and only 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese. I also added mushrooms. It was delicious!

Skillet Lasagna from Land O'Lakes®

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2015
I've made this two times and I loved it! I did cook the ground beef and drain it though. Years and years of cooking will not let me skip this step. I was worried it wouldn't have enough liquid so I wound up adding sliced mushrooms as they make their own liquid (I'm sure this was more of a mental thing but I like mushroons so it works). I found Barilla Plus Bowtie Pasta and it was wonderful. The first time I made it, I kept searching for more of a tomato-y taste and I considered using tomato sauce but then I realized that was silly because I didn't want to hide the Land O'Lakes flavor so I used stewed tomatoes and it was delicious! When I used pre-shredded mozzarella, it wound up being stringy at first, leftovers it wasn't stringy but I don't know who would cook this and wait to eat it the next day. I am going to try the little mozzarella balls next. Anyway, I loved how quickly this came together, I loved all the vegetables (with the mushrooms that's three different colored veggies), and I loved the flavor. I'm going to try the Garlic and Herb next!

Sauteed Portobellos and Spinach

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
I had fresh spinach and white mushrooms that needed to be used so I found this recipe. I used majoram instead of basil, garlic salt instead of fresh garlic, and red wine vinegar instead of dry red wine. Excellent! Thanks for the inspiration!

Lentil Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
It was good but it needs beans for me to consider it chili. Next time I think I will half the lentils and bulgur wheat and add 2 can of beans. I highly recommend soaking the lentils and bulgur wheat overnight.

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Anyone complaining this salad has no taste is buying the ingredients at a grocery store. The key here is to use fresh, local ingredients. I bought corn, tomatoes, onions, and basil from my farmer's market to make this salad the same day. The onion I felt was too strong and recommend 1/8 to 1/4 cup.

Glorified Baked Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I had a bag of shredded coleslaw mix but I didn't want to make coleslaw so I found this recipe. I used shredded cheddar cheese instead of processed cheese. I chopped the onion in big pieces because I didn't want to go through the hassle of mincing it. Also, I had asparagus I wanted to use and I'm glad I did because it gave it a slight crunch. I steamed the asparagus and mixed it in before I put it in the oven. I thought it was pretty good but it was still missing something. Any ideas?

Seven Layer Dinner

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
A few months ago I made a similar recipe with cream of mushroom instead of condensed tomato and I wasn't impressed. Well, the condensed tomato (and rice) really make a difference. The recipe didn't mention whether or not to pre-cook the meat so I went ahead and pre-cooked it. Well, my meat was overly brown so I have a strong suspicion you are supposed to use raw meat. Which just makes it even easier. I really only had 5 ingredients: potatoes, canned lima beans, rice, tomato soup, and ground beef. I will definitely make this again. I can't wait to try it with frozen carrots and onion. I think I will keep the canned lima beans. How easy is it to plop all these ingredients into a dish and pop in the oven? All you need is time.

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
First off, 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn leaves far too many kernals. Use 1/3 cup. Second, there is no need to add oil to the popcorn before you pop it. I could not taste it at all, the only thing it did was make the bag greasy. Add oil or melted butter to the popcorn after it has been popped (if you're using). I have found tht it mixes better when using a bowl rather than trying to pour it into the bag.

Mayo-Free Tuna Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
What a great idea! I used a can of tuna, red pepper hummus, diced celery, diced roma tomato, oregano, and pepper. I drained the tuna and it seemed a little dry so I added the middle of the tomato. I ate it with Sesame Tarragon crackers made by back to nature. Totally works!
