INGREDIENTS

2 c. ricotta
1 c. freshly grated Parmesan, plus more for sprinkling top
2 large eggs
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 c. marinara
2-3 large zucchini, cut into large strips using a Y peeler and drained on paper towels
3 c. shredded mozzarella
DIRECTIONS

Preheat 12″ dutch oven to 350°. In a small bowl, make ricotta mixture: Stir together ricotta, Parmesan and eggs and season with salt and pepper.
Spray and coat bottom and side of dutch oven with oil. Spread a thin layer of sauce in a bottom of dutch oven and layer with two layers of zucchini noodles, ricotta mixture, and mozzarella.
For the final layer, make a zucchini lattice. Layer zucchini noodles side by side at a diagonal in the dutch oven. Lift the bottom half of every other noodle and lay another zucchini noodle across diagonally. Repeat until top layer is full.
Sprinkle with more Parm and season with salt and pepper.
Bake until totally melty and zucchini is cooked through, 30 minutes.
Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

1 lb ground beef
1 15oz can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 15oz can golden hominy, rinsed and drained
1 14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes
1 11 oz can condensed nacho cheese soup
1 cup water
1 1 1/4 oz envelope taco seasoning mix

Directions
1. Cook ground beef until brown and brown. rinse off fat
2. Stir in beans,hominy, undrained tomatoes, nacho cheese soup, water, and seasoning. Bring to boiling, stirring often; reduce heat. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Ingredients
•5 Russet potatoes
•8 slices thick-cut bacon (cut into 1-inch pieces)
•2 jalapeno (diced)
•1 large yellow onion (sliced)
•2 tablespoons minced garlic
•seasoned salt and pepper
•3 – 4 cups lemon-lime soda (7-up, Sprite, etc.)

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a 11 x 13 casserole dish.
2. Cut the potatoes into 1/4 inch slices and place in cold water. Set aside.
3. In a large skillet, fry the bacon over medium heat until begins to brown. Add in the jalapeños, onion and garlic. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the bacon is three-quarters done and the vegetables soften. Remove from the heat.
4. Drain the water from the potatoes. Place a layer of potatoes on the bottom of the dish. Cover with half of the bacon mixture and sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste. Repeat using the remaining ingredients. Pour the soda over the mixture until it reaches about half-way up the dish.
5. Cover the dish with tinfoil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and stir. Replace the foil and continue baking for an additional 20 minutes more, or until the potatoes are tender. Season again, if desired. Serve hot.

Tip

Cover the dish will help keep the liquid from boiling out, but if needed you can add more liquid while baking if the potatoes do not have enough moisture to soften.
