To make these delicious dishes even simplier I would #1 put the chicken and the spaght sauce in a crockpot to cook during the day adding the cheese about 30 minutes before serving then serve over pasta with a side of green beans and #2 put the chops, soup, water and onion mix also in the CP and cook thru the day to serve over some rice with a chopped green salad on the side. the dishes sound great and will be adding them to my menu this month!
