    Wow, just saw this come through from Jen, one of my favorite bloggers. She has the best recipes and was excited to see such a cool idea using Kraft Recipe Makers (which if you're like me, you have stocked up, these last few weeks :-) Think I'm going to make this tomorrow! http://jcocina.com/cheesy-beef-manicotti-with-kraftrecipemakers/

    Lemon/garlic/Italian herb boneless chicken breasts on the grill, maybe a very quick pesto (garden basil and flat leaf parsley) for some Buitoni angel hair in the freezer (prior sale), and yellow squash on the grill for me.

    That sound delicious, JLAllen!

    wildfrench - I REALLY wish you had not told me about frying the ravioli! That sounds great - I will have to use will-power on this. :-)

    twoboysandadog- look forward to hearing how that comes out! Love anything w/black beans, corn and chicken. I got 3 of the Scampi versions on sale, but kind of regretting, as shrimp is so expensive!

    jdouglas13- Thank you! And I found it at Fresh Market (by the dried pasta). It's actually not that expensive, but is really delicious w/this dish. Something about the shape really makes it... it was my first time trying it too! Plus, it's so pretty :-)

    RFB, I just checked out your Georgia Byrd's chicken pasta recipe. All I can say is wow!! Where did you get the calamarata pasta? I never heard of it, and I thought I knew most pastas.

    Thanks, Faye, I never paid attention to the price before due to not being a big pasta fan--but now that I've discovered you can fry it I want some! I know, not as healthy, but I have a thing about boiled dough...and it won't be the main part of the meal, just an app.

    wildfrenchrose - it's not in the flyer, it's an unadvertised sale. Found it on LF Express Lane yesterday and bought in the store yesterday afternoon. Regularly $4.99 and on sale for $2.50 for the 24 oz bag of Celentano mini cheese ravioli.

    Gator gilrr - please let us know what you think of the pot roast sauce. Haven't tried it yet and have been wondering. Thanks. :-)
