Small Batch Veggie Lasagna

Small Batch Veggie Lasagna - Alison's AllspiceBack when I posted my Lentil Loaf recipe I told you all that meatloaf was a favorite food of mine as a child.  Well, my other favorite food was lasagna.  Mom would always ask us what meal we wanted to have for our birthdays, and I always chose lasagna.  Now I make a veggie version, and I love this small batch veggie lasagna because it only makes 4 servings.  With only two of us in the house, we don’t have to eat lasagna until we are tired of it!

Ravioli Bake with Spinach and Mushrooms

Today I have a simple recipe to share.  I have always loved ravioli, a comfort food from my childhood.  This bake is lasagna like, with layers of noodles, cheese, sauce, and veggies.  If you still have family hanging around after the holidays, this dish can be adapted to fit anyone’s taste.  It goes in and out of the oven in a cinch!

Cracker Crust Pizza

Hello Friends!  This is another recipe fantastic for football season!  Some thin crust pizzas lack in crust texture. You get a slice and it flops in your hand.  The flavor is all there, but that’s just because you have a delivery service for ooey-gooey cheese.  This pizza crust is thin and crispy, the best of both worlds!
