“I let my husband name this dish. Of all the things I cook he says this is one of his favorites. I certainly don't mind making it because it's so good and so easy. I guess I can stop trying to be "gourmet" if this is what he really wants to eat. :-) This is good comfort food and is easy for a quick weeknight meal. The quantities listed below are approximate since I just eyeball most of the stuff. If I don't have the family size box of mac and cheese on hand I just use 2 regular boxes. I also like to use the frozen veggies that you can microwave right in the bag.”
