Leesa's Lasagna

When we stayed at Leesa's for the baby blessing she made us this delicious lasagna! My kids gobbled it up and I loved it too.

2 lbs. hamburger
1 jar prego 3 cheese pasta sauce
1 container cottage cheese
Fiesta blend cheese & mozzarella cheese
10-12 lasagna noodles

Brown meat and season with garlic salt and italian seasoning(I just eyeball it and taste it when its fully cooked to see if I need to add more)
Add the pasta sauce and cottage cheese.
Stir and keep cooking it all together on low while you cook your noodles. Once the noodles are cooked I get my pan and lay 5-6 noodles, then the sauce mix and cover that layer with the cheeses. 
Repeat the next layer and then put it in the oven at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Thanks Leesa!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert

This is very good, but rich! It's a great summer dessert because there's no cooking!

20 oreos, divided
2 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
1 carton (16 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
15 miniature peanut butter cups, chopped
1 cup cold milk
1 pkg. (3.9 oz.) instant chocolate fudge pudding mix
Additional chopped peanut butter cups

1. Crush 16 oreos; toss with the butter. Press into an ungreased 9 in. square dish; set aside.

2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter and 1 cup confectioners' sugar until smooth. Fold in half of the whipped topping. Spread over crust. Sprinkle with peanut butter cups.

3. In another large bowl, beat the milk, pudding mix and remaining confectioners' sugar on low speed for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Fold in the remaining whipped topping.

4. Spread over peanut butter cups. Crush remaining cookies. Sprinkle cookies and peanut butter cups over the top if desired. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours.
