A while back, I had you all help me pick a recipe to take to a potluck party.  Now that the holiday’s are over, I am finally getting around to sharing the recipe I made.  This Italian crescent casserole was another dinner dish that was easy to put together and it was a big hit with everyone who tried it.  It reminded me of a deep dish pizza. Just add a salad on the side and you have a complete meal.

  • GROUND BEEF
  • GARLIC TOMATO PASTA SAUCE
  • PILLSBURY® REFRIGERATED CRESCENT DINNER ROLLS
  • SHREDDED ITALIAN CHEESE BLEND
  • DRIED BASIL LEAVES
