But wait... there's more!
I can't post two delicious entree recipes without sharing our favorite dessert the last couple nights. A fabulous, sweet "lasagna" dessert with all sweet ingredients. Most items are kept on hand in my kitchen, and may be in yours as well, so this recipe truly is a quick and delicious way to round out savory meals. Feel free to substitute any ingredients with lower fat/calorie versions to reduce the overall calorie count. Also - don't be fancy. Unless you plan to eat this all right away (which is definitely easy to do) go ahead and make in a container that you can pop a lid on in your fridge once it has set.
Banana Pudding Dessert "Lasagna"
1 sleeve graham crackers, broken at perforations
2 medium bananas, sliced in discs
1 packet banana cream pudding mix
2 scant cups cold 2% milk
In a 1 quart dish, make 3 layers of graham crackers and bananas (similar to layering a lasagna). In another bowl, whisk together 2 scant (not quite full) cups of cold 2% milk and the package of pudding mix. Immediately pour liquidy pudding mixture over your lasagna layers, trying to distribute it evenly. Place uncovered in the fridge for about 1 hour. Grahams should soften when it is ready. Slice like a lasagna and serve with a quick spray of whipped cream on top. Closest thing to a banana cream pie without all the work!
PS - Other pudding flavors could work! I'd favor vanilla, but I'm sure chocolate would be delicious as well. If you don't have a peanut allergy, sprinkle with crushed peanuts when serving for a flavor reminiscent of a banana split!
