This is a quick soup to whip up for dinner. You only really need an hour to prepare and clean up. If made ahead of time the flavours will blend together well.
What kid won't want to make Nachos for dinner? Serve at home with shredded lettuce, sour cream, salsa and guacamole.
Because this sauce is so divine the recipe makes a double batch. A double batch can be made by each guest but requires a 7 litre/7 quart slow cooker or dutch oven. In a group setting it is suggested that 2 guests make one recipe just divide vegetables and sauce between 2 pots and guests can roll their own meatballs. This recipe works well started in the morning and cooking in the slow cooker for 6 hours on high or simmering on the stove for 3 hours. Flavours are fantastic made a day ahead.
This meal is best made just before serving. If making gluten free just confirm there is no gluten in the sausage and chicken broth.
Most of these ingredients you can find in a well stocked pantry. Try with these beans or a mixture of your favourite. Change it up by letting your kids add their own toppings like: grated cheese, chopped fresh cilantro, guacamole or sour cream.
Our neighbours love the sauce from the General Tso Chicken so much they double it whenever making this recipe.
Lasagna sheets are my new favourite way to make a lasagna. You can find them at your local italian shop.
This recipe is much healthier than a take-out option. Pack it with vegetables you happen to have in your fridge of freezer. Any protein will work – leftover chicken, pork, steak, shrimp or even tofu. Here I have suggested some ingredient options but this recipe is very flexible. You can even stir fry leftover quinoa.
You can fill these as much or as little as you like depending on your family. I find 6 works well for one recipe but small kids might only eat half of one. For a dairy free version use special cheese or dice up an avocado in place of the grated cheese.
Serve this dish with naan bread or rice.
