Fall Blog Challenge-Recipes!

Happy Tuesday, all!
After a sad defeat for the Skins, I'm back at it at work, but in a surprisingly good mood. I got a bunch of new games for my kids (and some of the older ones who grumble and moan about everything even seemed to enjoy them!) We'll put one in the WIN column for that alone! :)

Today I'm linking up with Neely at a Complete Waste of Makeup for the Fall Blog Challenge. Today's topic is recipes!

Fabulous Fall Blog Challenge

I love food, and I love finding new, and easy recipes! Emphasis on EASY, which is why (as many of you already know) I LOVE using my crock pot to make delish meals. So, today I am going to share with you two of my favorite Fall recipes, both of which involve pesto (another ultimate fave of mine!)

1) Pesto Spinach Lasagna

This is a meat-less recipe, and totally does NOT need meat to be satisfying, I promise. But, when I have made it, I've gotten the pasta sauce with mini meatballs in it just because!

You can get the recipe here from the Crock Pot Lady who, in my mind, is a complete genius and I love her and her recipes!

2)  Pesto Chicken and Sweet Potatoes
She made hers with a side of quinoa. I am not that fancy and also didn't want to add another step (aka, I am lazy) but you could if you wanted to. Again, this recipe is so freaking easy. You just literally dump it all together, poke some holes in the potatoes and then you are dunzo!
My friend who doesn't really LOVE a ton of pesto said that she LOVED this when I made it and shared with her. It's super easy! This meal is hearty but also pretty dang healthy! Great for some fall/winter weather!
I also added a layer of mushrooms under the cheese layer because I like mushrooms and it soaked up the taste of the pesto nicely. Feel free to add or leave out as you please. 

The entire recipe, also courtesy of the CrockPot Lady is here
