Tex Mex Vegetarian Lasagna

Today is Pasta Sunday, and I decided to do a changeup! You know how some vegetarian lasagna recipes are just missing something (like meat!). Well, with this recipe you don’t even go there! This recipe has all the ingredients it needs to be perfectly delicious. My guest was surprised to find the sauce has V-8 … mainly because he doesn’t like V-8, or is it Worcestershire? Actually, I use both in cooking and normally don’t mention it to him. No Worcestershire in this recipe!

Lots of good ingredients. And a very surprising vegetarian lasagna!

Barbecued Brisket Soup

Happily put this together for a friend of mine! We just knew no one had made such a soup! If into brisket and the flavors of barbecue with a little heat this is the soup for you. To start I recommend cooking the brisket the day before you make the soup. It definitely can all be done the same day but I recommend putting the brisket in the refrigerator after cooking to make the removal of fat easier. Brisket can have a thick fatty pad over the top. This helps give the cooked brisket a juicy taste but can lead to a greasy soup unless removed. Cutting some of the fat off before cooking is an option too but you will still need to leave a little to keep the meat juicy. Here is the recipe for the Pulled Brisket.

Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup

This was my own idea but if you check it’s been done before. I’m into soups especially these last days since my heater pooped out. I was going to make stuffed bells in my crock pot and opted for this soup instead. The recipes are very similar actually. While you can cook this recipe in a slow cooker there really isn’t a reason. It’s so fast right on the stove top. And oh my goodness, I was on it with this! It’s totally delicious!

Here’s another recipe too! Made with turkey, brown rice and a little Italian spice.
