Marinara Sauce:

28 oz canned diced tomatoes
6 oz canned tomato paste
1 tablespoon italian seasoning, crushed
1/4 c shredded parmesan cheese
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 c dehydrated onion flakes
pinch of sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Place everything in the crockpot and cook on low 4-6 hours. Makes approx 6 cups (12 servings)

Yummy goodness :)

Stuffed Chicken Parmesan:

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, in 4 even pieces
1/2 c seasoned breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 egg
1 cup thawed frozen chopped spinach, drained
4 wedges Laughing Cow Light Garlic & Herb cheese

Place chicken breasts between sheets of saran wrap; pound with a meat mallet til approximately 1/4" thick. Spread one cheese wedge on each slice; top with 1/4 c spinach. Repeat. Roll each piece up, dip in egg, then dredge in the breadcrumb/flour mixture. Place on a cooking rack on top of a cookie sheet; spray with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
