Creamy Chocolate Dessert

Crust:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
6 Tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
3 cups stabilized whipped cream, divided
3 cups milk
2 (3.9 ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a food processor, add
flour and sugar and pulse until combined. Add butter and
pulse mixture just until it resembles coarse meal. Stir in
pecans. Scoop the mixture into a 9x13-inch baking pan
coated with nonstick spray. Place into the oven and bake
until lightly browned, about 18 to 22 minutes. Remove

mixing bowl, add cream cheese and sugar and beat until
fluffy. Add 1 1/2 cups of the whipped cream and fold just

smooth. Cover loosely and place in the refrigerator to
chill for about 1 hour. In a large bowl, add milk and
pudding mix and beat until it begins to thicken, about 2
minutes. Cover and place into the refrigerator until set,

of the cream cheese layer and use an off-set spatula to
spread it smooth. Spread remaining whipped cream
over the pudding layer. Cover and place into the
refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes before
serving. Dust with natural cocoa powder before serving,

23a. Zucchini Parmesan
Posted by: "Trudy" wearybrat@sbcglobal.net pisces194473153
Thu Aug 21, 2008 7:26 am (PDT)
Zucchini Parmesan

4 pounds zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick
slices
1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons olive oil, or more if needed
2 cups tomato puree
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup water
8 large fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup (less than 1 ounce) freshly grated Parmesan
cheese
1/2 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a 9x13x2-inch baking
casserole with some olive oil. Arrange zucchini slices on a
paper towel lined baking sheet or a platter and leave
exposed to the air for 30 minutes. Pat dry with paper
towels. In a large skillet, heat 1/2 cup of olive oil over
high heat. Working in batches, fry zucchini slices until
golden on both sides, turning with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes.
Remove from skillet with a fork and set aside on a paper
towel lined baking sheet or platter to drain. Meanwhile,
in a saucepan combine tomato puree with onion, water
and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a
simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low
and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until a little
denser, about 5 minutes. Arrange zucchini on bottom
of prepared casserole, with all slices facing the same
direction and overlapping if necessary. Sprinkle with
Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Spoon half of the
tomato sauce over the zucchini, lay mozzarella slices
over the tomato sauce, then spoon remaining tomato
sauce over mozzarella. (At this point casserole may be
refrigerated to bake later.) Bake until bubbling furiously,
about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest 10
minutes before serving. Makes 6 servings.

Simple Spinach Casserole

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 pounds fresh spinach, heavy stems removed,
washed well
1 1/2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt and freshly ground black pepper
pinch of nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a small
oval baking casserole. In a large saucepan, melt
butter over medium-high heat. Spin spinach leaves in
a salad spinner or swing in a kitchen towel, then add
to saucepan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly
wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove spinach and set aside.
In a bowl, mix cheese with the cream. Add spinach
and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Transfer
to prepared casserole and bake until slightly golden
brown on top and bubbly, about 40 minutes. Makes
4 servings.
