Italian Crescent Casserole

Classic Italian flavors in a flaky crescent crust, ready in 30 minutes.

What a deliciously easy dinner!


1 lb ground beef, cooked, drained
1 cup basil and garlic tomato pasta sauce
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 1/2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend (6 oz)
1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves


In 10-inch skillet, mix beef and pasta sauce.

 Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.

Separate dough into 8 triangles. Place dough in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate in spoke pattern, with narrow tips overlapping rim of plate about 3 inches.
 Press dough in side and bottom to form crust;
sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese.

Spoon meat mixture evenly over cheese.
 Bring tips of dough over filling to meet in center; do not overlap.

Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and the basil.

Bake at 375F 15 to 20 minutes
