Slow Cooker Meat and Veggie Lasagna

Slow Cooker Meat and Veggie Lasagna

Slow Cooker Lasagna is a very versatile dish. This Meat and Veggie Lasagna has lots of added vegetables and makes this version a meal by itself. Unfortunately, Baker’s Man demands garlic bread with all of his “Italian” dishes, so there was one more thing to do when I got home from work, but I’m not complaining. There’s nothing traditional about this slow cooker meat and […]

Baked Rigatoni is the perfect recipe for a weeknight meal. Rigatoni entered my life this week because it was on sale for $0.79 per pound at my local grocery store.

Italian Egg Rolls (Air Fryer)

Italian Egg Rolls (Air Fryer)

Italian Egg Rolls were something that I created one evening when we were trying to decide what to eat.  I don’t really like to turn on the oven during the summer months, and I’m not a big fan of deep frying foods.  It’s not for health reasons.  It’s because it seems so time consuming, and I didn’t feel like standing over the stove while the […]

Baked Ravioli Casserole

Baked Ravioli Casserole is simple to assemble and gets dinner into the oven, and onto the table, without much fuss.    The dish contains only 3 ingredients,  but tastes like you worked much harder at getting it onto the table.  Like my sheet pan dinners, once this dish is assembled, it goes into the oven where it bakes for about 45 minutes.  That allows you to […]

A cream sauce filled with rich flavor and super foods Kale and Cannelli beans.

Penne with Creamy Kale and Canellini Sauce

I really love beans and greens, and one of the things I sometimes add to the basic dish is a pound of Italian sausage.  The addition of that one extra ingredient transforms the dish from a side into an entree.  Of course, I could eat the vegetarian version as an entree, but Baker’s Man prefers meat in his entrees.  As I was contemplating what to […]
