One of my goals this summer is to use my crockpot more. Remember I live in the hot humid South and I try not to bake or use my oven that much in the summer time. Now, that doesn’t mean I am being good and healthy because I do have a large and small ice cream maker. Ice cream is a great summer time favorite at our house.
I purchased the Crockport Recipe Collection Cookbook recently and as I browsed through it, I saw recipes that would be good for summertime. Also, I have been wanting to make Lasagna. First of all, Lasagna is a great meal stretcher for us and when I make a pan of it, I freeze portions of it to be eaten later. When I saw the recipe I am sharing with you today, I liked it because it only makes four servings and it only includes four Lasagna noodles that is great for Mr. D as he is diabetic.
On Saturday I made the dish and I will tell you that you might be amazed at what a small kitchen I have but it is totally acceptable with me. However, I make a horrible mess as I am assembling a Lasagna dish. My kitchen looks like a wreck when I finish. Even though this recipe was simpler to make, I still wrecked the kitchen.
Here is a picture of the Lasagna:
We enjoyed this Lasagna and it is definitely a keeper for our family. I found the prepared alfredo sauce at the deli in the grocery store and we enjoyed the creaminess of the dish. The flavors blended together so well and this would be a good dish to incorporate any leftover chicken you might have.
I have a girlfriend, Sherry, that I meet once a month for lunch and she gave me the idea of using my crockpot in the summertime. I am so glad that I invested in this cookbook and I look forward to sharing more recipes with you as the summer continues.
Happy Friday Everyone and I hope your weekend is great. Thanks for stopping by.
