Easy Lasagna II
I used what I had on hand which was a healthier version and came out amazing. I used whole grain lasagna, 2lbs of ground turkey instead of hamburger, 24oz tomato basil spaghetti sauce + drained can of fire roasted diced tomatoes, 15oz ricotta cheese in lieu of cottage, frozen parsley/basil cubes instead of dried. I added onion, garlic, season salt/black pepper & 2 basil cubes to the meat and after browned added spaghetti sauce & tomatoes and simmered for 30 min. Boiled lasagna for 8 min, drained & dried. Mixed ricotta, 1/2 cup of parmesan (on accident didn't read i was only supposed to use half...but glad i used all of it), the 2 eggs and 4 parsley cubes in separate bowl. Layered as instructed and skipped the water. Baked at 375 for 40 min and uncovered for additional 20. The result was a firm, non-runny, delicious lasagna that was light on sauce. My boyfriend and I liked it that way but if you want it more runny and saucy use more spaghetti sauce instead of substituting w/ diced tomatoes.

Artichoke Chicken
Excellent! Followed recipe except use chicken tenders instead and season it beforehand. I've made it with big chicken breasts and not as good. I guess the tenders just cook perfectly and more flavorful.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Very good, i was impressed. Only change was adding cut up celery, seasoning chicken before putting in crockpot and substituted water w/ chicken stock.
