In a large skillet, saute onion and pepper in butter over medium heat until they become soft and onions become transparent.
Coarsely chop roast beef and add to onion/pepper mix.
Stir for about 2-3 minutes or until roast beef becomes hot. Add beef broth and cream cheese, stirring until cream cheese is melted and coats the roast beef. Remove from heat.
Separate crescents dough into triangles and press flat.
Slice Swiss cheese into 4 strips and lay each strip over each crescent triangle.
Scoop about 2 Tbsp. of roast beef mix over each triangle and roll up, pinching the sides of the crescent so cheese doesn't ooze out.

Dinner: Cajun Chicken Spaghetti
This was really good and it was spicy!
- ounces (about 2/3 of a 1 lb box) dried spaghetti noodles
- 15 ounce jar Alfredo sauce
- medium (about 1 cup) yellow onion, diced
- cloves garlic, minced
- 1 1/2
- pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- pound andouille sausage, sliced
- green bell pepper, diced
- 14.5 ounce can Muir Glen Fire-roasted Tomatoes
- 1 1/2
- tablespoons Creole seasoning
- cup heavy cream
- teaspoon salt
Dice the chicken and slice the andouille sausage.
Dice the onion, chop the green bell pepper, mince the garlic and you’re done! That’s all the prep work. Now we’re just going to add everything to the slow cooker.
Pour 1/3 of the Alfredo sauce into the bottom of the slow cooker and stir in the onions and garlic.
Layer the chicken pieces on top of the saucy onions.
Sprinkle ½ of the Creole seasoning over the chicken.
Layer the green bell peppers over the chicken.
Layer the andouille sausage over the chicken.
Next pour the tomatoes (including the juice) over the sausage.
Sprinkle the remaining Creole seasoning over the tomatoes.
Pour the remaining Alfredo sauce over the tomatoes.
Close the lid and cook on low for 4 hours.
Add about ¼ cup of heavy cream to make the sauce that much creamier and yummy. Add the salt. Add more according to taste or add more Creole seasoning if desired.
Break the spaghetti noodles in thirds and place them in the sauce.
Stir the noodles around in the sauce until completely coated and submerged in the sauce. Make sure they’re not sticking out. Raise the heat to high and cook for another 20-25 minutes. Keep in mind that once you turn the slow cooker off, the sauce and noodles will continue to cook for a few minutes and you don’t want to overcook the noodles. So if you’re not going to eat immediately, reduce the time you cook the noodles.
