Throw Together Mexican Casserole
I was stuck home today had a pound of ground beef that needed to be used so I decided to try this. I tweaked it and used ingredients that I had on hand I used rotini and I sub the salsa with canned tomatoes ready for chili, and I used chili beans in a mild sauce instead of the kidney beans. I omitted the taco sauce and used my own homemade taco seasoning and sub Tomatoe soup for the Tomatoe sauce. I also put in 2oz of cream cheese. I then put it all together and I put half in the casserole topped it with 6 American singles put the remaining meat mixture on top sprinkled with a little cheddar and baked as directed. I put it on a plate and topped it with lettuce ,tomato ,sour cream and crushed Frietos it was a hit in my house!!!!!

Chicken Parmesan
Well my husband is Italian and it is hard to put anything in front of him that isn't pretty authentic italian food, but this was a keeper he loved it. I served it with some pasta and a little extra sauce, I didn't have fresh basil but sprinkled a little dried basil on each breast but other than that followed the directions and it was quick, easy and delicious !!!
