Super Easy Spinach Sauce for Pasta

1 pkg Stouffers Spinach Souffle
1 jar classico
lotsa garlic (2-4 cloves, more if you’re like me)

Cook the spinach souffle as difected on package for the microwave.
It doesnt have to be super firm like you would cook it as a
souffle, you just want to get it all hot and melty.

Peel and grate the garlic over the small holkes on a cheese shredder.
It’s much easier than cutting or pressing, believe me.

In a saucepan combine the Classico sauce, the spinach and garlic.

Cook over low heat until your family comes in the kitchen and asks
what is smelling so good. Then it’s ready to pour over some pasta.

Submitted by: Letty

Prep Time: approx. 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Cook Time: approx. 30 Minutes

” This is the perfect comfort food for cold days. To make it vegan,
substitute non-dairy ingredients for dairy. Leftover filling makes a
great lunch! If you want to make mashed potatoes from scratch, you
will want at least 4 cups when you are through. ”

Ingredients
1 head broccoli, cut into florets
8 ounces whole button mushrooms
3 small zucchini, chopped
2 cups chopped carrots
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
3 cups water
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1 potatoes
1 (12 ounce) package corn tortillas
3 cups enchilada sauce, red or green
8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions
1 Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.

2 In a large mixing bowl, combine broccoli, mushrooms,
zucchini, and carrots.
Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Spread vegetables in a single layer on a jellyroll pan.

3 Roast vegetables in the 425° F (220°C) oven for 30 to 40 minutes;
stir halfway through their cooking time. When they are
finished cooking,
remove them from the oven and reduce the oven’s heat to 350° F (175° C).

4 Bring water, milk and butter or margarine to a boil in a large pot.
Remove the pot from the heat and mix in the mashed potato mix.
Let stand two minutes, then stir the mashed potatoes with a fork until
they are smooth. In a large bowl, mix potatoes and roasted vegetables together.

5 Heat a tortilla in dry nonstick skillet over medium heat briefly on
both sides to make it pliable. Dip the tortillas in enchilada sauce,
then place the tortilla on a plate to assemble. Put a large spoonful
(approximately 1/4 to 1/3 cup) of potato-veggie mixture into the center
of the tortilla. Top with about 1 to 2 tablespoons of cheese, and roll
the tortilla up. Place rolls seam-side down in the baking dish, and repeat
this process until all of the enchiladas are rolled. Pour extra sauce
over top and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

6 Bake at 350° F (175° C) for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, until the
enchiladas are heated through.
