I made this Italian Crescent Bake for lunch the other day and it was so yummy! Easy too and ready in about 30 minutes so if you want something fast and easy, try this!

I have been busy moving this week and haven’t been cooking much. Hopefully as I get the house back together I will get back on my posting schedule and be sharing soon again. I am going to change things up a little with summer being here so that means more grilling recipes and recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less. The last thing I want to be doing is spending time in a hot kitchen and I know you’ll agree.

Bake to this recipe, I used a jarred spaghetti sauce for convenience and pizza sauce would work also. You could also add up to 2 cups of vegetables, like zucchini or mushrooms.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 lbs. ground beef
