Wordless and Wordful Wednesday ~ Easy Recipe For You!

When I looked up at the clock and saw that it was already 5:45 tonight I realized that I hadn't started dinner yet.  So...I made something up from what I had around the house (see my notes below to see how I would change it).  Let me tell you we all loved this!

Here's what I did:

Italian Mac N Cheese Casserole

Made two packages of Kraft Mac N Cheese Homestyle Old World Italian with Parmesan & Romano Cheese. I didn't add the bread crumbs on the top yet.
Cooked two boneless chicken breasts in just a tad of olive oil.
Mixed the above two together in a pan.  Added 1 can of diced Italian tomatoes slightly drained and 1 package of frozen broccoli.

Put all of the above into a 9x13 pan.  Sprinkle the top with some shredded Italian cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Once done top with the bread crumbs.

Voila!  A great meal without much fuss.  Granted it may not be the best for you but...it's what I had and did on short notice.  Should have leftovers as well for Sam and Andy to enjoy.

NOTES:  It really could have used 2 cans of diced tomatoes and if I had had the time the chicken would have been wonderful marinated in some Italian dressing.
