Chicken Tortellini and Pesto

1 to 2  cups sliced Mushrooms

1 medium Onion cut into large chunks

3 cloves Garlic minced

1 pound Chicken Breast

1 container Store Bought Pesto

1 package Cheese filled Tortellini cooked according to instructions

Shredded Parmesan Cheese  or other Italian Cheese


Brown mushrooms, garlic and onion in olive oil until tender.  Place on the side and brown chicken until done. Then cut chicken into small bite size pieces putting back in pan with mushrooms, garlic and onions.  Stir in the pesto until hot.  Add hot tortellini to mixture and serve.  I garnish with parmesan cheese.  This is an easy week night meal when served with a salad and garlic bread.

A great thing about this dish is that it can be served hot, warm or cold and taste great!





Turtle Cake (Yummy)

1 box German chocolate cake mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
1 cup milk
1 (14 oz) package caramels

In a sauce pan, melt caramels with milk over low heat, stirring occasionally. Takes about 10 – 12 minutes.
In the meantime, mix cake according to directions, adding vanilla. Pour 1/2 of cake mixture in a greased and floured 13 x 9 pan . Bake about 10 – 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
When cake has baked for the 10 or more minutes and the sauce is ready, pour sauce over the cake. Sprinkle withchocolate chips and nuts. Pour remaining batter over sauce. Bake about 20 – 30 minutes more, until done.


CREAMSICLE CAKE!!  (looks yummy)
1 Pkg Yellow Cake Mix
2 Pk Orange Gelatin
1 Pk Vanilla Instant Pudding
1 Cup 2% Milk
2 Grade A Large Eggs
2 Tsp Imitation Vanilla
1 Tub Whipped Topping

Bake the cake as directed in a 9 x 13″ pan. Let cake cool completely. Poke holes in cooled cake. Mix 1 package orange gelatin dessert with 1 c. boiling water and 1 c. cold water. Pour over cake. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. Mix pudding mix with cold milk the other package of orange gelatin dessert and vanilla. Beat by hand with a whisk until thickened. Fold in the whipped topping. Frost the cake with the pudding mixture.
For a layered Creamsicle Cake: Make the cake batter as directed, then batter pour evenly into 3 round 9″ cake pans. Bake cakes as directed and let cool

. Then, make the orange gelatin as directed on the package — but with this version, you’ll let the gelatin set up instead of pouring it into the cake. We recommend using your round cake pans, or using a 13 x 17″ jelly roll pan (1″ deep cookie sheet with edges). Once you pour the liquid gelatin mixture into the pans, it will need to be refrigerated for about 4 hours. Meanwhile, make the pudding mixture according to the original recipe. Finally, layer in this order: cake, gelatin pudding mixture. Repeat once more for a 6-layered Creamsicle Cake. —

Loaded Potato and Chicken Casserole (another good looking recipe I need to try)

2 pounds boneless chicken breasts, cubed (1″)
8-10 medium potatoes, cut in 1/2″ cubes
1/3 cup olive oil
1&1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp. black pepper
1 Tbsp. paprika
2 Tbsp. garlic powder
6 Tbsp. hot sauce

2 cups fiesta blend cheese
1 cup crumbled bacon
1 cup diced green onion

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Spray a 9X13″ baking dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl mix together the olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and hot sauce. Add the cubed potatoes and stir to coat. Carefully scoop the potatoes into the prepared baking dish, leaving behind as much of the olive oil/hot sauce mixture as possible. Bake the potatoes for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and crispy and browned on the outside. While the potatoes are cooking, add the cubed chicken to the bowl with the left over olive oil/hot sauce mixture and stir to coat. Once the potatoes are fully cooked, remove from the oven and lower the oven temperature to 400 degrees. Top the cooked potatoes with the raw marinated chicken. In a bowl ix together the cheese, bacon and green onion and top the raw chicken with the cheese mixture. Return the casserole to the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the topping is bubbly delicious.

3. Spoon turkey mixture evenly over tortillas in baker. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese. Sprinkle half of the green onion over cheese. Top with remaining four tortillas, overlapping slightly and pressing down lightly. Spread remaining salsa over tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and onion.
