COOKING IS DANDY WITH SANDY — 10 MIN HOMEMADE MAC & CHEESE

10 Aug

Who doesn’t like eating mac and cheese!?

I don’t! LOL

Well not the powder & pasta stuff anyway

In my home mac and cheese is made with real cheese, tomato sauce and pasta

My toddler won’t eat it any other way

Believe me, I’ve tried giving her the other kind —ALWAYS a no go!

It’s REALLY easy to make, just like regular mac & cheese but tastes way yummier

Ingredients

  • 4 oz mild or medium cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 8 oz box/bag of your favorite pasta
  • (1) 8 oz can of tomato sauce
  • salt to taste
  • water

Serves 4

Directions

  1. Boil pasta in water over medium heat until soft (~8 min)
  2. Drain with collander
  3. Put back on stove over low heat
  4. Add salt (to taste), can of tomato sauce and shredded cheese
  5. Remove from heat when all the cheese is fully melted, then serve

 

Sometimes I add shredded chicken or tuna to it to get my protein in there hehe

My kids prefer it plain 🙂

Here’s another quick and easy recipe with macaroni pasta: Chicken macaroni salad

 

Ingredients

  • 8 oz bag/box macaroni pasta
  • water
  • mayonnaise
  • salt + pepper
  • (1) can mixed veggies (11+ oz)
  • shredded chicken
  • shredded lettuce & cubes of cheddar cheese (optional)

 

Directions

  1. Boil pasta over med heat until soft (~8 min)
  2. Drain water with collander
  3. Let cool
  4. Once cool, add ~1 cup mayonnaise, salt & pepper (to taste), shredded chicken and can of mixed veggies (make sure to drain the liquid first!)
  5. Mix together (gently)
  6. Let cool in fridge or eat right away with your favorite chips or alone 🙂

 

These are just a few quick and easy meals I usually make at lunch time when I’m strapped for time
