Recipe Requests...

Sorry for the delay but I just realized that several of you were wanting the Company Chicken and Saucy Stuffed Shells recipes... Here they are :) Enjoy!

Company Chicken
1 (6 oz) pkg wild rice
1 (10 oz) pkg frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
4 cups chopped cooked chicken
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 cups (8 oz) shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (10 oz) can cream of celery soup
1 cup Hellman's mayo
1 tsp curry powder ( I omitted this... I don't like this flavor)
1/4 cup (1 oz) grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare the rice using the pkg directions. Layer the rice, broccoli, chicken, mushrooms, and Cheddar cheese in the order listed in a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Combine the soup, mayo, and curry powder in a bowl and mix well. Spread the mayo mixture over the prepared layers and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350* for 50 minutes. You may substitute chopped cooked ham for the chicken, adding 2 tsp. of prepared mustard to the soup mixture. Serves 8-10.

Note: I halved the recipe and it made enough to serve about be prepared for leftovers! It heated up great for days!

Saucy Stuffed Shells with Four Cheeses
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. Italian sausage
1 tsp garlic salt
3 cups water
3 (6 oz) cans tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp basil
16 oz ricotta cheese
2 eggs, slightly beaten
3 cups (12 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup (4 oz) grated Parmesan cheese
Jumbo pasta shells, cooked and drained
8 slices Provolone cheese

Brown the ground beef and sausage with the garlic salt in a skillet over medium heat, stirring until the meats are crumbly; drain. Stir in the water, tomato paste, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and basil. Simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Combine the ricotta cheese and eggs in a bowl and mix well. Stir in the mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Fill the pasta shells generously withe cheese mixture; the shells will be overflowing with the stuffing. Arrange the shells stuffing side up in a single layer in a 9x13 inch baking dish sprayed lightly with non stick cooking spray. Arrange the provolone cheese slices over the top and spread with the ground beef mixture.
Bake, covered at 350* for 45 minutes; remove the cover and bake for another 15 minutes. Let stand at room temp. for 10-15 minutes before serving. Serve with additional Parmesan cheese, if desired. Serves 12

Note: I halved the recipe and it still made a ton!
