Hello all! Cheryl Wyatt here. I'm getting ready to go on a writing spree to finish a couple book projects. That means less online time and pretty much hibernating away with my computer for a couple of weeks. One thing I like to do ahead of time is prepare meals for my family to make dinnertime easier and my writing days more efficient. I make them ahead then toss them in the freezer. So all I have to do is toss the ready-made ingredients in the crock pot or oven.
What's your favorite crock pot meal? Can you share the recipe in the comment section?
If you do dump dinners, like I described above, let me know. I'd love to try some new recipes for my family.
Thanks in advance for sharing.
I'm sharing a meal that my middle daughter created. It's SO, SO good. Enjoy!
BELL PEPPER PASTA
-1 block or bag of mozzarella cheese
-1 red bell pepper
-1 orange bell pepper
-1 yellow bell pepper
-grilled chicken strips
-1 stick butter
-1/2 c flour
-1 cup cream or milk
-3 cloves garlic
-salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to grill chicken strips. I use the ones already cut and precooked in a bag. But you can use fresh chicken breasts-grill and cut into strips.
Heat your favorite brand of pre-made Alfredo sauce in a pan, along with 1 stick of butter. Add flour and stir it until it becomes a thick paste. Add milk and stir. Cook until it boils. Add onion powder. Slowly add strips of mozzarella cheese until it's all melted in with the mixture. Add salt, pepper and garlic. Let simmer on low.
Dice bell peppers and sauté in olive oil.
Cook 1 box of penne pasta.
Add peppers, penne pasta and chicken strips to the mixture, then stir. Serve and enjoy!
Your turn. Share your favorite recipe! :-)
