Cheese Chicken Rolls

3 chicken breasts
1 can crescent rolls
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup milk

Boil thawed chicken until cooked.  While chicken is cooking, combine soup, cheese, and milk in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until melted and warm.  Roll out crescent rolls in a greased baking dish.  

Once chicken is cooked, shred chicken and place inside of individual rolls, roll up, and place in dish.  Cover rolls with cheese sauce and bake on 350 for 25-30 minutes or until brown and bubbly.

Seafood Stuffed Pasta

1 pkg large shells
1 can Alfredo sauce
1-16oz ricotta cheese
1 cups Parmesan cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 pkg flaked crab meat
1/2 tsp garlic

Boil pasta according to package.  While shells are cooking, mix ricotta, Parmesan, and 1 cup mozzarella cheeses, crab meat, and garlic in a large mixing bowl.  (you can also add a little white wine to keep it from being dry, I use pinot grigio just because that is what I usually have around the house).

After shells are cooked, drained, and cooled, stuff with mixture.  Place in greased baking dish and cover with sauce and 1 cup mozzarella cheese.

Cook on 375 for 25-30 minutes or until cheese has melted and sauce is bubbly.  Serve with bread and a salad!

Double Decker Pumpkin Pie

1-8oz pkg cream cheese, VERY soft
1 Tsp milk
1 Tsp sugar
1-8oz cool whip (only use 1/2 in the pie)
1 graham cracker crust
1-15 oz can PURE pumpkin (do NOT use pumpkin mix kind, ONLY the pure pumpkin)
2-3.4 oz pkg vanilla pudding
1 cup milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves

First you will mix the base layer.
Beat cream cheese, 1 Tsp milk and 1 Tsp sugar in a large mixing bowl until blended.  Stir in 4 oz cool whip.
Spread into crust

Next, you will make the second layer which is the pumpkin layer.
Whisk 1 cup milk, pumpkin mix, pudding mix, and spices for AT LEAST 2 minutes or until VERY thick.
Spread over cream base and refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours.  Top with remaining cool whip just before serving.
