    Oh Dowie,
    All of these recipes look wonderful! Have you ever made the Chicken Taco Soup from that cook book? My niece just sent me the recipe and I'm anxious to try it. She says it's great.

    I'm copying every one of these recipes that you posted. Thanks!

  • RE: My Favorite Recipes from Fix-It and Forget-It
    CarolinaCooker, no I haven't tried that soup. Is it called Chicken Tortilla Soup? I can't find a Chicken Taco Soup. If that's the right one, I'll mark it to try.
    Glad you all liked the recipes!

    HELEN'S LASAGNA

    1 lb ground beef
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    29 oz can tomato sauce
    1 cup water
    6 oz can tomato paste
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp dried oregano
    8 oz pkg lasagna noodles, uncooked
    4 cups shredded cheese
    1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

    Cook beef, onion and garlic until browned. Drain. Stir in tomato sauce, water, tomato paste, salt and oregano. Mix well.
    Spread one-fourth of meat sauce in ungreased slow cooker. Arrange one-third of noodles over sauce.
    Combine the cheeses. Spoon one-third of mixture over noodles. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining meat sauce.
    Cover, cook on Low 4-5 hours.

    variation: For a fuller flavor use 24-oz can tomato sauce instead of tomato paste and water. Add 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp dried basil and 1/4 tsp pepper.

    Dowie's notes - I used the variation method, the sauce instead of paste and water. Also added basil. It was a bit too salty, so next time I would cut down on salt.

    Dowie, for the dressing, what kind of bread did you use? I'm thinking about Thanksgiving dinner -- DH loves dressing, and I've never made it well. I wonder if that would work with cornbread. Sure would be nice to have one less thing to go in the oven that day!

    I found that you may need more bread or you need to watch how much liquid depending on the bread. But it's great to make..You can use turkey in place of chicken.

    Emr - I just use whatever bread or rolls that have been in the freezer for awhile! I have never made it with cornbread. It sure is nice to make a few things ahead of time, so not everything is last minute.
