Recipe of the Week

Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole

1# lean ground beef
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 c. spaghetti sauce
1 1/2 c. shredded Mozzarella cheese (6 oz.)
1/2 c. sour cream
1 8-oz. package refrigerated crescent rolls
1/3 c. shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
2 T. butter or margarine, melted
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet, cook ground beef and onion until meat is brown. Drain off fat. Stir in spaghetti sauce; heat through.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine Mozzarella cheese and sour cream. Spread the meat mixture in a 2-quart baking dish and spoon the cheese mixture on top.

Unroll crescent dough and separate into triangles for a round baking dish or press edges together and roll out slightly into a rectangle for a rectangular baking dish. Place dough over the cheese mixture. In a small bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, melted butter and garlic powder; spread over dough. Sprinkle with parsley.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crust is a deep golden brown. Makes 8 servings.
