Simple Dinners: Lasagna Roll Ups

We love lasagna, we have Celiac’s Disease in our family and have someone who has to eat gluten-free at all times, but we LOVE Lasagna. There are some incredible gluten-free pastas, but it can be hard to put together a full lasagna on a busy night. We have discovered the fun of lasagna roll-ups for those busy nights.

One of the other great benefits of the lasagna roll-up for us is that gluten free noodles can be expensive, and they frequently come in smaller portion sizes meaning you have to buy twice as many to feed large numbers of people, or else make multiple meals. We hate having to do that. So the idea of lasagna roll ups is genius in our case because you use have the amount of lasagne noodles making the roll-ups than you would to make a whole lasagna. Which means we can get away with buying less and spending less.

We found this fun and simple lasagna roll-ups recipe at Views From the Ville. It is so simple you can do it on a busy day, or make lots of it and freeze it for another night. Good food simplified!

So head on over for the full tutorial. Be sure to check out the other great recipes and ideas at Views From the Ville!

Easy Meals: Pad Thai

We love international cuisine n our house. We love getting to go out to eat Chinese food, Thai food, Sushi, and Korean food. But that can get expensive, especially when you are buying food for 5 or more people. Restaurants are great, but we love being able to get the restaurant style food we love at home too.

Recently we stumbled upon a great Pad Thai recipe that keeps our Thai cravings to a minimum. It is a great and simple dish to make, and it can be fed to larger groups very easily. The best part about this recipe is that you can alter it to fit your family and their tastes. My husband loves Pad Thai but cannot stand having too many beansprouts, my kids favorite part is the shrimp and most restaurants only give one to two shrimp per person, and I love all the extra veggies. So when I make it at home I can make more of what we love.
