1 Tablespoon Oil (I used Olive Oil)
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 Clove Garlic (minced)
2 Tablespoons Corn Starch
1/2 Green Pepper
1 Small White Onion (large chunks)
1 Cup Carrots (thin slices)
4oz Mushrooms
2 Cups White Rice (I used instant)

Thin slice your meat, and brown in olive oil in skillet.

Add soy sauce, garlic and corn starch and mix well. Toss in green pepper, onion and carrots. Also, mushrooms at this point if everyone eats them. I had to wait until I’d separated out the boy’s portion ūüėČ

Warm until carrots start to soften, serve over rice.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Roll-Ups, Stuffed With Broccoli and Cheese Recipe


Capture
We love the flavors of Chicken with Bacon and Ranch, so I decided to change it up a bit and bake a new recipe.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Roll-Ups, Stuffed With Broccoli and Cheese
Ingredients:
3 Boneless-Skinless Chicken Breasts – cut into strips
1 pound pre-cooked Bacon
1 Small Crown of Broccoli, finely chopped
3 Cheese sticks, sliced
1 12 oz. Bottle Ranch Dressing

DSC07573DSC07572

You will also need toothpicks and a casserole dish, sprayed with non-stick spray.

Place 1 slice of bacon and one strip of chicken in an x-shape.
Line up a few small pieces of broccoli and one chunk of cheese along the chicken.

DSC07576

Fold one side of the chicken over the filling.
Fold one side of bacon up, then the other side of chicken, followed by the last end of bacon.
Stick a toothpick through all layers.
Place in the baking dish.

DSC07577

Repeat until all chicken and bacon has been prepared.

Drizzle ranch dressing over the top.

DSC07578

Place in 350 degree oven, and bake for approximately 50 minutes.

Remove from oven, and let cool for a few minutes.
The next time I make this, I will place an extra chunk of cheese on the top of each roll, as requested by my husband!

Lasagna Rolls Recipe

1
Leftover Lasagna is not a favorite in our house, so I came up this Lasagna Rolls Recipe as a solution to make a smaller pan for dinner. Now I often bulk prep 2-4 pans at a time and freeze them.

What you need: Your favorite Lasagna recipe and a couple small pans. I like the 8×8’s because they fit well in a gallon zipper bag for the freezer.

My recipe is simple. Lasagna noodles (cooked), unseasoned ground beef (cooked), cottage cheese, 1 jar of pasta sauce, (1) 8oz pack of shredded mozzarella cheese.

Lay your noodles out and top with everything else.

2

Place a small layer of sauce in your pan, then roll your noodles up and place them in the pan. About 6 rolls will fit in an 8×8 pan.

Top with a little more sauce and your cheese.

1

Then bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

OR if you are putting them in the freezer, slide them into a gallon size zipper bag and press as much air out as you can before sealing. Write your cooking instructions on the bag with a marker. Thawed these cook in 30 minutes at 350. They can go from the freezer to the oven if you cook them for about an hour at 350.

Enjoy!

Buttery Olive Oil & Herb Pasta

1
A simple way to get close to the “out of the box” taste of pre-flavored pasta sides with stuff you probably have on hand already!

Buttery Olive Oil & Herb Pasta

4 Tablespoons Butter/Margarine
1/8 Cup Olive Oil (I used EVOO)
1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic
1 Teaspoon Parsley
1 Teaspoon Basil
3-4 Cups of Pasta

Start by cooking your pasta until ready. Then melt butter/margarine in sauce pan (I used the same one I made the pasta in and just left the pasta in the strainer for a couple minutes).

Add olive oil and herbs, remove from heat. Toss pasta back into the pan and mix.

Serve. Enjoy!

Easy Sushi Recipe

(Some of the links in this post may be my affiliate or referral links, using them supports this site. Please see my Disclosure Policy.)

Sushi
I found the Jasmine Rice for $3.69 (3 dry cups, makes approx 12 cups cooked) and the Nori Wrappers $2.49 for a 10ct pack.

Sushi Recipe

Basics for 6 rolls:

2 Cups Water
1 Cup Jasmine Rice
3 Nori Wrappers – broken in half

Now, you need to decide what to put in them. Though I do limited amounts of raw fish, I tend to prefer sushi varieties that do not have raw fish in them.

Three basic rolls:

California Roll Р1 stick Crab meat (I used imitation sticks), 2 slices Avocado and 4 long/thin stirps Cucumber

Avocado Roll Р2 slices Avocado, Cream Cheese and 4 long/thin stirps Cucumber

Cream Cheese Roll РCream Cheese, 1 stick Crab meat and 4 long/thin stirps Cucumber

You start by cooking your Jasmine Rice per package directions. This becomes the “sticky” rice you need. While that is cooking, it’s a good idea to prep your other items. Then you lay the Nori on your “mat”. I didn’t have a sushi mat, so I used wax paper. But, if you want to do it a little easier you can check out the Sushi Roll Makers available on Amazon as well: Japan Sushi Roll Mold /Maker (Small) and Sushezi Sushi Made Easy.

Layer the rice on top of the Nori, then flip it over. There is no need to wet the Nori, it will absorb the moisture it needs from the rice.

Add your other items.

Roll, pressing tight as you go.

And you have a roll.

Pretty, right? It was my first time!

A couple of the rolls came out better than the others, but still VERY edible.

Enjoy!
