October 1, 2015
Between the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot to the feel of snuggly throw blankets during cozy nights in, there's just something magical about autumn here in Virginia. But there's one way to make the season even more special: the smell of a home-cooked meal coming from your kitchen at Dahlgren! Here are a few quick, easy, and budget-friendly meal recipes to try this fall!
1) Pumpkin Quesadillas [Rachael Ray]
Your favorite restaurant appetizer gets a seasonal update in this recipe by celeb chef Rachael Ray — and it couldn't be easier. Simply mix two cups canned pumpkin with a bit of cumin, then spread the mixture onto four flour tortillas. Add chopped, toasted walnuts for a bit of crunch, and crumble goat cheese over top. Then, top each tortilla with another tortilla to make a sandwich, and fry each on the stovetop. Yum!
2) Three-Cheese Baked Penne with Tomatoes and Basil [Delish]
Even picky eaters will love this one: Penne pasta is coated with eggs, three different kinds of cheese, plus tomatoes and basil, then popped in the oven at 375 degrees. When it emerges after 30 minutes, you'll have a bubbly, cheesy dish that your loved ones will devour!
3) Game Day Chili [BHG]
It's not fall without football — or your crock pot! Celebrate both with this easy chili recipe, which combines ground beef chuck, diced tomatoes, and a heavy dose of seasonings (including chocolate!) in a crock pot to create a hearty, homestyle dish in six to seven hours.
