Only our Stove Top works, you know just the eyes, and I am tired kind of pasta I have been making, but I was wondering what else I could make on a stove Top that does not require the oven.  Thanks.

Do you have a slow cooker?  You can make tons of stuff in those!  Have you considered buying a toaster oven?  They're cheap and can do small items.

our oven doesn't work either Sad I've been able to get by with a toaster oven and our stove top though. Mostly I've just been adjusting the size and cook time of items to work in the toaster oven.

10 flour tortillas
10 oz. grated Monterey Jack cheese
Chopped tomato
Chopped green onion
Chopped bell pepper
Hot sauce (optional)

Mix cheese, sauce, tomatoes, green onions, and bell pepper in bowl. Place tortilla in skillet with a small amount of butter. Place small amount of cheese mixture in tortilla. Fold tortilla over and heat until cheese melts.

Note: Grilled chicken or beef strips may also be added and a variety of vegetables. Be creative.

Black beans, dried or canned (2 cans)
Garlic cloves
Fresh onion
Green pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
Flour burritos
Cheddar cheese
Mild or med. picante sauce

Cook black beans according to directions on package, if using dried. I use canned. I sometimes use re-fried beans instead to make something different.

Saute garlic, onions, green pepper in 2 tablespoons olive oil; mix with either cooked dried beans or canned beans.

Heat flour burritos until warm. (I do this in the microwave)

Place black beans mixed with sauteed onion, garlic and green pepper on top of burritos. Sprinkle shredded Cheddar cheese over that.

Spoon mild or medium picante sauce over that. Fold and enjoy.


1      lb   Italian sausage, casings removed
1    medium onion, chopped
1    medium green pepper, chopped
3    cups uncooked mafalda pasta (mini-lasagna)
2 1/2    cups water
1    teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 (30    ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
1 (15 oz) container Ricotta Cheese

(I sometimes substitute the sausage for ground chuck. You can substitute with ground meatless or spinach for a meatless twist.)

Cook sausage, onion, and green pepper in a 4-quart dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink; drain.

Stir in remaining ingredients.

Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally; reduce heat.

Simmer uncovered 10-12 minutes or until pasta is tender.

How about stir-fry?  Stir-fry up some peppers and onions and whatever else you want with some soy sauce, and make some rice.

Do you have a grill?  Grilled portobello mushrooms are really good...

I only use my oven when I make hubby meat which is usually only on like Valentines or his birthday. I ues the crock pot and the rice cooker. I got a rice cooker at target for $15 that also steams veggies So in the morning I put my main dish in the crock pot then about 20 min before I am ready to eat I make the rice and 5-10 min I make veggies.

I even make oatmeal in a smaller crock pot I bought especially for making oatmeal but I am lazy when it comes to cooking. I love to bake though.

You can make almost anything in the crockpot no oven required Smiley cause if you don't use it, you don't have to clean it  Grin

Seriously.  Get a toaster oven, they're pretty cheap and make just about everything you could make in a regular oven, only mini.  Like little pizzas, etc.

I bought one when I moved out of my parents' house and have no idea how I lived without it for so long.
