To kind of spice up what we are used to, we steered away from the boiled tortellini with alfredo sauce.
- Toss in Pesto and oil
- Add feta cheese
- mix with sautéed spinach
- Add parmesan crumbles
- sprinkle with italian seasoning and parsley
To pair with the dinner, I decided to try a recipe I found online. Red Lobster biscuits.
Despite the fact that I will soon have access to all the Red Lobster biscuits I could want, I have wanted to make these for awhile and finally gave it a shot.
- 1 1/4 cup of bisquick or equivalent
- 1/2 heaping cup of shredded cheese
- 2 tablespoons cold butter
- 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 3/8 cup whole milk
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Pinch of salt
- Use a whisk to mix the bisquick and cold butter- not too much. there should still be pea sized butter crumbs.
- Add the cheese and 1/8 teaspoon of garlic- lightly mix.
- Add the milk- lightly mix. All should be damped but it should also look thick and sticky.
- Drop in 6 even portions on a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes or until brown.
- combine the melted butter, parsley, garlic and salt. Keep warm and melted. Brush this on top of the biscuits when finished.I don’t have a brush so I just sprinkled it and rubbed it around with the back of a spoon.
Note: although the restaurant’s biscuits are a little crumbly, these easily dry out. You can easily compensate for this with extra butter as you eat it. Or, add a little extra milk or cheese.
