Pesto Chicken Penne Casserole
This was yummo-licious! As always, I read the reviews to get tips before following a recipe. I made some changes for my family of 4: used 2.5 cups of uncooked whole wheat penne pasta , used half of a 7 oz jar of pesto. Used maybe less than a 1/2 c of crushed tomatoes (eyeballed it to taste). Used 3 oz of cut grilled chicken strips. I used the entire 15 oz jar of alfredo sauce. I don't think I used 3 cups of spinach. I eyeballed this too, to my liking. Used 2 cups of italian blend cheeses and 3/4 c of milk. I used the specified amount of parmesan cheese and bread crumbs, but I probably used 2 TBSP of EVOO because 1 TBSP wasn't enough. My kids are somewhat picky when it comes to eating, and they (and DH) LOVED it! This is definitely a keeper. I agree, it's not a healthy meal, BUT using whole wheat pasta and watching your portions will make a difference. Thanks, Linda, for submitting this wonderful, comforting, family meal!!

Beef Nacho Casserole
I'm rating this recipe as it is written. We are not fans of Miracle Whip. I didn't follow all the ingredients so I give it 3 stars. But as I prepared it, I give it 5 stars all the way!!!! This was so delicious. My family LOVED it. Especially one of my picky eaters. Even the other picky eater tried it, and that was a huge step for him. But I made some adjustments to fit our palates. I didn't use corn, Miracle whip, or chili powder. Instead, I used lean ground turkey, 1/2 chunky salsa and 1/2 mild taco sauce to my liking (not sure of the measurements, but I didn't want it runny). I used about 2 heaping Tbsp of fat free sour cream and 2 heaping Tbsp of plain greek yogurt. I used 1 packet of Taco Bell taco seasoning, and Mild cheddar and Monterey Jack shredded cheese. When I layered it, I started with the crushed chips, meat sauce, cheese. Then chips again, meat sauce, a few finely crushed chips, then cheese and topped it off with some sliced black olives. This will definitely be our new "Taco Tuesday" dish. YUMM-O!!!!
