Mac-n-Cheese & Menu-planning Monday!

As I mentioned last week, this week was an EASY dinner week since my husband was out-of-town.  We actually ended up having lots of frozen pizza and cereal!  lol  BUT we did make my sister's homemade Mac-n-Cheese and the kids LOVED it!  Here's the recipe...

-  2 cups Macaroni or shell noodles
-  Cream of Chicken Soup
-  Cheddar Cheese - grated
-  Milk (optional)

1.  Cook & drain noodles. 
2.  Stir in Cream of Chicken Soup & cheddar cheese.  How much cheese is up to you... (I think I used about 2 cups.)  If you'd like you can add a splash of milk to make it a little creamier...
3.  Sprinkle a thin layer of cheese on top - or you could even add bread crumbs on top!
4.  Pour into a 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the cheese melts.


Back to cooking this week, which I'm actually excited for...  You can only take so much of spaghettio's and ramen noodles!  lol

  1. Your menu sounds delicious. I never thought of making lasagna in a skillet before. As much as we love lasagna around here, I always dread making it, because it is so labor intensive on the prep side. I may just have to try it this way.

    Have a blessed day!

  2. I copied and pasted your mac and cheese recipe into my to try file. My daughter is a mac and cheese fanatic. I will make this for her soon.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! lol
