Garlic Knots

By special request of a friend, I’m going to show you how to make garlic knots.  They are so easy and my family loves them.  I found the recipe months ago and I make them at least once a week now. 

You will need biscuits, olive oil, parmesan, garlic, oregano, and parsley.

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and preheat your oven to 400.

I use the Grands Jr. Golden Layers Butter Tastin’ biscuits.  The can looks like this:

Take the biscuits out of the can and you are going to squish and roll them until the dough is a long rope, long enough to tie into  knot.

Then tie it into a knot.

Now fold the ends under and place on the cookie sheet.

Pop them in the oven and cook them for about 8-10 minutes or golden brown.

While they are cooking you will want to mix the rest of the ingredients together.  1/4 cup olive oil, 3 tbsp parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp garlic salt or powder (I prefer garlic salt because I just like it better), 1 tsp dried oregano, and 1 tsp dried parsley flakes.

While the knots are still hot, brush the mixture over the top of them.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

They are going to go fast so if your family is anything like mine, you might want to make two cans 😉 Enjoy!

Simple Spaghetti

This is a very simple recipe.  I don’t know about your family, but mine gets tired of the same old spaghetti all the time.  Noodles with hamburger meant and canned sauce.  This recipe lets you get some fresh ingredients and depending on the ingredients you use, it can be low fat and low cholesterol.  

 

You will need spaghetti noodles (whole wheat or whole grain if you want it healthier), about 5 roma tomatoes, red onion, low fat grated Parmesan cheese, basil (fresh or dried) and low fat house Italian dressing.

Start by putting a large pot of water on to boil.  When it boils, add your spaghetti noodles.

While the spaghetti is cooking, dice up the tomatoes and some of the onion.  You will need about 2 tablespoons of the onion.  Add those to the bowl along with 1/2 cup House Italian dressing, a teaspoon of basil, and about 1/2 cup of the shredded Parmesan. Mix it up well.

Once the spaghetti is done, drain the water from it and put it back into the pot.  Add the tomato mixture and mix it well.  That’s it.  It’s quick, it’s simple, and it’s a very refreshing change to the same ole spaghetti.  Enjoy!
