Quick Italian Dish

Thanks to Doreen from Vermont for this Recipe!!
  • Sun dried tomatoes
  • Black olives
  • Tortellini
  • Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • Shredded Mozzarella/Parmesan Cheese

  • Slice/chop tomatoes, olives, and garlic and saute in a small amount of olive oil. Boil tortellini, drain. Mix tomatoes, olives and garlic into the tortellini, serve, sprinkled with shredded cheese.
  • This is the only "original" recipe I've been stuck on for quite some time. I usually use a mushroom/cheese filled tortellini. For amounts, I usually use a half package of sun dried tomatoes, small can of black olives, and plenty of garlic cloves. This is a recipe that can be made very quickly and to one's own taste. _ Doreen

Potato Casserole

Thanks to Penny from Washington for this recipe!!
  • One bag of frozen shredded hash brown potatoes.
  • One Can of Cream of something soup. [For two bags I used three cans, one cream of onion, one cream of potato and one cream of celery.]
  • One cup of sour cream for each can of soup.
  • One and half cups of mixed grated cheeses for each can of soup.
  • 1/2 finely chopped onion per can of soup and about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of dried parsley. You want to have the green of parsley throughout.

  • Mix the whole thing together. Put into casserole dish(es) and bake one hour at 350...I mixed up ahead of time, covered and refrigerated.
  • Variations--You could do a Martha and mix about 1/2 cup of mixed shredded cheese with the fine bread crumbs and put over the top for the last 10 minutes of baking....
  • You could mix in a couple of teaspoons of chilies or chopped peppers
  • You could also mix parmesan or asiago on with the cheeses....
