This is a classic steakhouse-style spinach salad with the absolute best warm bacon-mustard dressing I've ever had! Looks and tastes like a lot of work, but can be prepared in no time! This salad can easily be converted to a main dish salad by adding strips of grilled chicken breast.
A pleasing blend of ground beef, cottage cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan, egg whites and dried oregano is stuffed into large tubes of cooked manicotti in this satisfying baked dish. Blanket the stuffed pasta with spaghetti sauce, top with cheese and bake.
I wanted to do something different as a vegetable side dish. It was Thanksgiving, so I got a bunch of root vegetables and roasted them. They were a hit and are now a staple at our holiday table. I cook them during the year sometimes, as well.
All ingredients come from the freezer or the refrigerator and are assembled at time of use. Freshly cooked beans are better than the canned variety so have some on hand always, all beans work well for this wonderful soup! Ladle into your nicest soup plate, find a warm cozy place to sit and sip your soup.
