Pin Gone Good – Food Style

Spread the love

I swear, I could live on Italian, I may weigh 500 lbs if I did, but I sure could do it!  Either that or I’d have to get my butt big time into the C25K program and never quit running!  Which I’m not going to lie, I really should do anyway 🙂

Well last week hubby and I had talked about going out for Italian but we decided not to in the end.  Then, low & behold Earl came up with Italian themed Sunday Night Dinner!  Woohooo!  {Early, you’re awesome!! Just in case you didn’t know that already}

She based her theme off of this pin:

Have you ever had these?  If not, I say you must drop everything you’re doing and run to the store for the ingredients!!  Here’s what hers looked like.

Oh hello yum!  We took Pepperoni Bread we bought at the Amish Store right around the corner from my house and then Tbug saw PW’s show Saturday where she made Mint Brownies, so we just had to make those too!  Although I tuckered out and didn’t get them covered in chocolate.  So we had icingless brownies!  They were still tasty!

And here are the cutie girlies sitting eating their dinner.  After one of them caught me taking this photo they were all about how they looked and what they were doing at the exact moment I took this photo.  The convo was hilarious!

Then later in the evening Tbug swore she was stuck, I’m not so sure what happened but I walked into the room and she was like this.  Then asked me if I wanted her back stuck for a photo… lol.  Don’t worry she did her “I’m a Dork Dance” prior to this.  It’s all good.

So see, even on the coolest of nights Sunday Night Dinner is extremely entertaining if nothing else!

and Here’s the recipe for the Chicken Alfredo Roll-ups just in case you’d like it!  I”m telling you, they’re yummy!  Although the recipe says 3 roll ups for 1 person, we’re all satisfied with 1 per person!

Chicken Alfredo Roll-ups

9 lasagna noodles
2 ½ cups alfredo sauce (optional homemade recipe below)
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
garlic salt
3 cups shredded Mozzarella, or cheese of your choice

Spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick spray and pour ½ cup alfredo sauce, or just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Boil 8-10 cups water in a large pan, cook lasagne noodles until al dente. (I usually cook 1 or 2 extra just because lasagna noodles always seem to break on me when I am stirring them.)
Now this is the important part! Drain and rinse the noodles with cold water to prevent them from sticking to each other. Then, lay out each noodle individually and blot dry with a paper towel.

Spread about 2 Tbs. alfredo sauce over each noodle. (if there is too much sauce you will have a big mess on your hands!) Sprinkle oregano and garlic salt on top of sauce. Take 1/9 of the shredded chicken and spread it out evenly over each noodle. Add approx. 3 Tbs. cheese. To roll up, start at one end and roll the noodle over the toppings. You will need to lift the noodle a little to prevent squishing out the inside ingredients while rolling.

Place the roll-ups in the pan, one by one, seam-side down so they don’t come undone. Once they are all in the pan, pour the remaining alfredo sauce over the top. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted on top.

Serves 3, 3 roll-ups each

  1. I could live on Italian food too – pasta is definitely one of my favourites! I'm going to have to try this one out, sounds delish. Mmmm Alfredo!!!

  2. Yum that looks amazing! I could eat Italian everyday too! That's why we use whole wheat pizza crust and I also use Shirataka (yam noodles) instead of regular pasta most times. You can cut the pasta calories from over 200 to 20!
