    RaleighFoodBlogger - Thank you for sharing your wonton wrapper lasagna recipe! It really does sound delicious.

    Lindabates- I'd love to as it was SO good! But, not much of a recipe, so here's what I did:

    I sprayed a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray and added in a bit of pasta sauce to the bottom (Classico- the one with the wine). Then I single layered wonton wrappers on the bottom. Then I layered leftover rotisserie chicken, shredded (I had about 3/4 of a chicken total, so use half on this layer), some pasta sauce to cover, spoonfuls of ricotta cheese (about 8 small spoonfuls dolloped around) and a layer of shredded mozzarella cheese.

    Add more won ton wrapper and repeat the layers of chicken, sauce and cheeses.

    Then add a third layer of wonton wrapper (I used 1/2 a pack total), a bit more pasta sauce and what was left of the package of shredded mozzarella. I baked it at 350 for about 25 minutes. Hope that makes sense. The simplest recipe, and so delicious! I think you could pretty much layer as you'd like and it would still come out great!

    barbiedoll1967 - as Jdouglas posted, quesadillas are so easy and there really isn't any formal recipe I use.

    I just put a flour tortilla (the smaller taco size) on a skillet sprayed with olive oil spray. Then top with cheese of choice, then put on preferred toppings (like sauteed spinach and mushrooms, or sauteed peppers and onions, for example). Then top it with a little more cheese and spices (I usually just use garlic and pepper) and put another tortilla on the top of it all.

    Cook on the skillet on medium for a few minutes until cheese melts and then flip, carefully, and cook the other side until cheese melts. I top mine with various toppings depending on what we have. I like any and all of the following: salsa, sour cream, lettuce, chopped tomatoes, black olives, avocados or guacamole. I hope that helps!

    twinredheads - I bet your family was thankful for a non ham dinner tonight. lol

    Thanks for sharing your meals everyone!

    Taking a break from the ham. Hot Italian sausage over rice with a side of steamed broccoli.

    Raleigh food blogger... will you please share the recipe?

  • ascherer Jan 19, 2017

    Tonight is the last of the chili with a side salad. Feta Cranberry Pinwheels for dessert.

  • RaleighFoodBlogger Jan 19, 2017

    Agree on the quesadillas- yum!

    Tonight is wonton wrapper chicken lasagna using a rotisserie chicken... talk about simple :)

    The kiddos decided on breakfast for dinner :)

    Thanks JDouglas13. I will most definitely have to try to fix quesadillas.

  • jdouglas13 Jan 19, 2017

    Barbiedoll, I know Faye will post in a bit, but quesadillas are as yummy as they are easy. Think grilled cheese sandwich except with tortillas instead of bread! I used to get one that had shrimp in it -- it was SOOO good, and was served with guacamole, salsa, and sour cream on the side.

    Now if I could only convince my DW that she really DOES like tortillas, guac, and salsa!! LOL
