She cooks!

 Well, sometimes I do. This week I made a yummy dinner and an awesome dessert. First the dinner... Italian Crescent Casserole.




1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 cup garlic tomato pasta sauce
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
cups shredded Italian cheese blend
¼ teaspoon dried basil leaves


1. In skillet, mix cooked beef and pasta sauce. Heat over medium heat until warm. 2. Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles. Place dough in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate in spoke pattern, with narrow tips overlapping rim of plate about 3 inches. 3. Press dough in side and bottom of pan to form crust and cover the pan. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese over dough in the pan. 4. Spoon meat mixture evenly over cheese. 5. Bring tips of dough over filling to meet in center; do not overlap. 6. Sprinkle with remaining ½ cup cheese over the dish followed by the basil. Bake at 375°F 15 to 20 minutes.

 Next time I will increase the cheese by about 1 cup :)

I will post the dessert a little while later today. I've got to head up to the office for a bit. As always....
