7UP Biscuits


This is a recipe that has been floating around Facebook.  I ran out of Bisquick and didn't have extra for kneading.  I opted to make drop biscuits instead of cut biscuits.

Ingredients:
4 c. Bisquick
1 c. sour cream
1 c. 7UP
1/2 c. melted butter

Directions:

  1. Mix Bisquick, sour cream and 7UP, dough will be very soft
  2. Knead and fold dough until coated with your baking mix
  3. Pat dough out and cut biscuits using a round biscuit/cookie cutter 
  4. Melt butter in bottom of cookie sheet pan or 9x13 casserole dish
  5. Place biscuits on top of melted butter and bake @ 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until brown

Tortellini and Zucchini

Ingredients:
1 c. uncooked tortellini
1/2 onion, diced
1 clove minced garlic
3 small, or 2 medium zucchini, sliced thin
6 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced thin (optional)
1 - 8oz. can tomato sauce
2 t. Mrs. Dash original seasoning

Directions:
Cook tortellini according to package directions.
While tortellini is cooking, spray pan with cooking spray and begin cooking onion and garlic over medium heat.
Add sliced zucchini and sprinkle with Mrs. Dash seasoning.
If using mushrooms, add them now.
Stir and continue cooking until vegetables are cooked through, slightly browned.
Add can of tomato sauce and simmer.
Add cooked tortellini and toss until covered with sauce.

Note:
I often add diced bell peppers if I have them on hand.
If I am out of Mrs. Dash, I will add Italian Seasoning, Basil, and Oregano.  I don't have exact measurements as I usually just sprinkle them in.
