Simply…from Pillsbury

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Bunny. Congrats!

I am a fan of Pillsbury products which is why I was excited to try some products from their Simply line. This line of dough contains zero grams trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial colors or flavors. It is super easy to make (open the container and put into your oven) that my husband even managed to make the Rustic French Bread without any help from me! What surprised me more than that was that this bread tastes homemade.  I never would have guessed that this came from a can!  It is literally that good.  The bread just melted in our mouthes, and I can’t imagine getting any other kind of french bread now.  It is really that good!  The biscuits were just as good too.

Since we loved these products, I want you to try it out yourself.  I’ve arranged for one lucky ready to received a Pillsbury Prize Pack that will include a jar of honey, spreader, cutting board, and basket.  Here’s what you need to do:

Skillet Lasagna

When it is just me and the kids, I tend not to take pictures.  I have a hard time getting everyone situated and that is just what happened with this recipe.  Now, this is a recipe you can definitely customize to what you want.  I am going to list this easy to make recipe the way I made it.  However, next time I will be adding some diced tomatoes to this and possibly some ricotta cheese too.

Instructions

  2. Add in garlic, spaghetti sauce, water, and dressing. Bring this to a boil and then stir in the noodles. Reduce the heat to medium low and cover. Cook 10 - 15 minutes or until your noodles are tender. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cheese. Cover again and let stand 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Ravioli Bake

This is an easy to make recipe.  However, it does need a couple of tweaks.  This was the first time for us to make this recipe, and I would definitely not add as much beef broth.  It was super good, but very soupy.  Besides that, this is an excellent recipe that I got from the Kraft Foods website.
