Chicken Tortellini Bake

Ingredients

1 (9-oz) package three-cheese tortellini
1 (26-oz) jar vodka pasta sauce
1 (4-oz) jar diced pimientos, drained
2 large eggs, beaten (or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
1 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
1 lb chicken breast tenders
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup fresh basil, coarsely chopped

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Toss pasta with vodka sauce and diced pimientos; place in 9-inch square baking dish.
  2. Place eggs in shallow bowl; place bread crumbs in second bowl. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Dip chicken into egg (allowing excess to drip off). Finally, coat chicken with bread crumbs; press with fingertips to coat evenly. Arrange chicken on top of pasta (wash hands). Bake 30–35 minutes and until chicken is 165°F.
  3. Top pasta with cheese; bake 2–3 more minutes or until cheese melts. Let stand 5 minutes to cool. Chop basil; sprinkle over top and serve.

Banana Cake Bon Bons

Ingredients

1/2 of a (20-oz) pound cake, thawed
Nonstick aluminum foil
1 large banana
2 (3.25-oz) cups vanilla pudding
2 (7-oz) containers dipping chocolate
Decorating sprinkles (optional)

Prep

  • Remove cake from packaging and cut in half (reserve remaining half for another use); slice cake thinly. Let stand 10 minutes to thaw.
  • Line baking sheet with foil. (Be sure pan will fit in your freezer.)

Steps

  1. Mash banana in medium bowl; crumble pound cake and add to banana. Stir in pudding, blending until consistency of soft dough.
  2. Roll cake mixture into 1-inch balls (or form with a portion scoop). Place on baking sheet; freeze 10–15 minutes to harden balls.
  3. Melt chocolate following package instructions. Dip cake balls into chocolate using two forks, letting excess chocolate drip off. Place balls on baking sheet; immediately top with sprinkles if desired and let chocolate harden. Store in refrigerator or freezer until ready to serve. (Makes 24 bon bons.)

Aprons Advice

  • Complete your meal with fresh salad blend and garlic bread.
  • Choose your favorite sprinkles for the bon bons. Be sure to add the sprinkles right after dipping; if you wait too long, they may not stick.
