First there was Spicy Chicken Legs, in my case, Spicy Chicken Quarters. They were on sale, so I went with them instead of just the leg. I figure more for the buck!!
I could not find the hot salt that she suggested to use, so I decided to add some Franks Red Hot sauce. I just gave about 5 big shakes into my butter/lemon mixture. It was the perfect amount of hot for my family. I love that stuff!!! Could eat it right out of the bottle!! This was probably some of the best baked chicken I have ever eaten. I added homemade Mac and Cheese using Velveeta and of course my garlic/butter green beans. This was not a low fat meal by no means, but it sure was good!!! Had lots of leftovers.
Last night I made the Baked Ziti, or again I used Penne Noodles, instead of Ziti. I could not find the Ziti in whole wheat, and I like my pasta with fiber. So Penne it was. I also could not find that special Mascarpone cheese she suggested, so I just used Ricotta. I looked up Mascarpone and it said it was in the same family as Ricotta, so I thought it would work just as good.
This recipe is wonderful. It defiantly became a family "KEEPER" It almost taste like Lasagna, but not quite as rich. I did add some extra cheese, cause my family loves cheese. I served this with Salad and Garlic Bread. Again, lots of left overs for the weekend.
