Most of these recipes were found via Pintrest. I can't help it. I'm addicted. I've tried to be sure to post the web address of each recipe to give credit where credit is due.

I have made each one of these dishes at least once. If it makes the blog, that means our family liked the dish, and someday I'll make it again.

Cheesy Chicken & Rice Bake

Source:  Taste of Home's Quick Cooking Magazine, Jan/Feb 2000

    1 lb. ground beef
    1 lg. onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 can tomato sauce (29 oz.)
    1 c. water
    1 can tomato paste (6 oz.)
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. dried oregano
    1 pkg. no-cook lasagna noodles (8 oz.)
    4 c. shredded mozzarella cheese (16 oz.)
    11/2 c. small-curd cottage cheese (12 oz.)
    1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
In a skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomato sauce, water, tomato paste, salt and oregano; mix well. Spread a fourth of the meat sauce in an ungreased 5-quart slow cooker. Arrange a third of the noodles over sauce (break the noodles if necessary). Combine the cheeses; spoon a third of the mixture over noodles. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining meat sauce. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until noodles are tender.
Yield: 6-8 servings.
