GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Have fun with food! The newest trend to hit the culinary table is food mash-ups. These are unexpected combinations of two different dishes or cuisines. It sounds challenging, but can be done in a number of easy ways. Check out this three course meal that is sure to wow your dinner crowd.
Appetizer: Caesar salad pizza
This pizza is crunchy, crisp, and great for a crowd. Our favorite part of this mash-up is the garlicky-peppery pizza crust which tastes just like the croutons you find in a classic Caesar salad. It has the same fresh and salty bite of a Caesar salad, but made into finger food! If you wanted to make this pizza for lunch, add some chicken for extra protein.

Main dish: Chicken Enchilada Pasta
Creamy and comforting pasta gets a kick of Mexican flavor! Beans and chicken contain a lot of protein to fuel you, while the gooey cheese and lush sour cream makes the pasta feel a little naughty. The best part is this one-dish pasta-casserole combination feeds 8 hungry diners! Find the recipe to chicken enchilada pasta here!
Dessert: Oatmeal raisin cookie pie
Creamy, gooey, crunchy, crispy, comforting are just a few adjectives to describe this pie! A golden crust filled with rich oatmeal raisin dough is a surprisingly genius combination. It’s absolutely perfect served slightly warm with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream. Find the recipe to oatmeal raisin cookie pie here!
