Patriotic Fruit Pizza

2 tubes sugar cookie dough

2 blocks cream cheese (softened)

1 large container marshmallow creme



Grease a cookie sheet with edges. Pat cookie dough relatively flat in a rectangular shape on the cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, until you have one big beautiful rectangular cookie.

Combine cream cheese and marshmallow creme with electric mixer until smooth. When the big cookie has cooled, spread the mixture gently on top. Place blueberries in a square in the top left-hand corner to be the “stars.” Slice strawberries and line them up to be the “stripes.” Grab your sparklers and enjoy your 4th of July!

Ravioli Lasagna

1 package of your favorite ravioli from your grocery store’s refrigerated section

1 jar spaghetti sauce

1 package provolone cheese slices

Pre-cooked chicken strips or chicken breasts, cooked and cut into pieces

Shredded mozzarella cheese or grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

(Sorry to not have exact amounts of the ingredients, this is a dump-and-bake kind of recipe.)

Cook ravioli according to package directions, drain. In a casserole dish, layer ravioli, spaghetti sauce, chicken and provolone slices, two or three times each. Top with mozzarella, parmesan, or more provolone. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until heated through and bubbly. Makes a great dish to take to a family who has just had a baby–they can stick it in the oven themselves, and it is usually a hit with the kids.

    These both sound great – adding to the grocery list šŸ™‚

  2. These sound really good. I think they would both be a big hit at my house.

    The Ravioli Lasagna can also be made in the Crock-Pot, which makes it even easier! We have this all the time! My family loves it!

  4. Laura Says:

    I can’t wait to try the ravioli lasagna recipe, and I love fruit pizza! I have, however, further simplified my version of fruit pizza by using store-bought cream cheese frosting instead of making my own.

  5. Sounds good! I had heard of the ravioli lasagna before, but forgot about it. I’ll have to try it.

  6. Amy Says:

    Oh my goodness, those both sound awesome. I just happen to have all of the ingredients! Yay!
    My WFMW recipes are mostly just “dump it in”, too; I just guessed on amounts mostly to save face! haha.

    Both sound great – thanks for sharing – perfect timing for the dessert one – I might make it this weekend!

    I made this last week and I absolutely loved it. So easy and tasty! Thanks for sharing!
