I found this recipe in the January, 2010 issue of Parents magazine. I'm posting so I don't lose it- sounds like a great after Christmas use for those candy canes. Caffeine-free latte for your little ones!
I found this recipe in a Rachael Ray magazine and needed to use up some granola. Calls for one inch thick slices of bread (couldn't get the recipe to format correctly with this information). I made it without the topping since I was just cooking for my kids, but I'm sure that would make it even better!
This recipe tops the rigatoni with a bechamel style sauce before broiling. Can substitute ground turkey or Italian sausage for the ground beef. I also just make this in a large casserole dish rather than individual bowls (it makes a LOT to be considered four servings).
This isn't a recipe as much as a method of cooking summer squash. I gave amounts but treat it more as a ratio than a rule- allow at least one squash per serving because it cooks down to a very small amount even though it looks like you are cooking a lot.
I pulled a baked potato and some ham out of the refrigerator to use up leftovers one day but was less than enthusiastic about the prospect. Then, I noticed my new Magic Bullet sitting there and decided to be adventurous. I was thrilled with the results- easy potato skins for one! Ingredients listed are what I had on hand at the time (and measurements are very approximate as I was just tossing in), you could use anything you like on your potatoes.
I don't know where I got this recipe but have been preparing it for years. The sour cream in the cracker topping is what really makes it different from other casseroles I have tried. I usually serve this with peas or green beans and some garlic bread for a comfort meal on a cold day.
I had an old recipe for sloppy joes and I kept tweaking it until I came up with this. I don't usually measure everything, some of these are approximations. I also occasionally cook this in a crockpot (simmer on low for several hours).
