  • 1 pound of ground beef, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup of your preferred Three Cheese Pasta Sauce
  • 1 can (8 ounces) of refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1 ½ cups of shredded Italian cheese blend (about 6 ounces)
  • ¼ teaspoon of dried basil leaves


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a skillet, combine the cooked ground beef with your chosen Three Cheese Pasta Sauce. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until it reaches a boil.
  3. Unroll the crescent dinner rolls and separate them into 8 triangles.
  4. Arrange the dough triangles in a spoke pattern within an ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate, ensuring that the narrow tips overlap the rim of the plate by approximately 3 inches. Press the dough into the sides and bottom of the plate to form a crust.
  5. Sprinkle 1 cup of the Italian cheese blend over the dough crust.
  6. Evenly spoon the prepared meat mixture over the cheese-covered dough.
  7. Bring the tips of the dough triangles over the filling towards the center, without overlapping them.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining ½ cup of Italian cheese blend and the dried basil over the top.
  9. Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Once baked, allow the casserole to cool slightly before serving.

Enjoy your Italian Crescent Casserole!
