Another New Recipe

Been a couple weeks since I tried something new again, but we did last night and it definitely passed the test! I found the recipe on the Pilsbury website and its called Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole. It was easy, I used all lite or reduced fat ingredients and it was still very tasty!

1 lb. lean ground beef (I used 93/7)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup tomato pasta sauce
6 oz. (1 1/2 cups) shredded mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup sour cream (I used light)
1 (8-oz.) can Pillsbury® Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls (I used reduced fat)
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large skillet, cook ground beef and onion over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain. Stir in pasta sauce; cook until thoroughly heated.
2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine mozzarella cheese and sour cream; mix well.
3. Pour hot beef mixture into ungreased 9 1/2 or 10-inch glass deep-dish pie pan or 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish. Spoon cheese mixture over beef mixture. (I used a rectangle 11x7 and it was perfect!)
4. Unroll dough over cheese mixture. (If using pie pan, separate dough into 8 triangles; arrange points toward center over cheese mixture, crimping outside edges if necessary.) In small bowl, mix Parmesan cheese and butter. Spread evenly over dough.
5. Bake at 375°F. for 18 to 25 minutes or until deep golden brown. (Mine was cooked about 20ish minutes)
