Busy. But I love it!
Still, it's neither a particularly frugal nor a particularly healthy habit to get used to eating dinner out every night, especially since I tend to eat lunch out with my coworkers every day. I love making fun, elaborate recipes, but that's not what I need for weekday dinners. I need something fast and easy!
Read on for my experience and the recipe for the mac & cheese pictured above!
Forget about boiling and straining your pasta, just cook it right in the pan!
On a Monday night, after a long day when my stomach is growling and I'm exhausted, not having to boil and strain my pasta (and having less dishes to wash) is an amazing feeling!
I picked some up from my local Kroger grocery store and tried out this quick and easy mac & cheese recipe from Barilla's website!
The recipe calls for 1/2 Tbsp. dry mustard, but I just used 1/2 Tbsp. of regular yellow mustard, since that's what I had on hand. It turned out brilliantly anyway, so other than that one little change this recipe is a winner as is!
It was easy and super cheesy.
Two thumbs up!
Try it out yourself by picking up some Barilla® Pronto™ pasta at your local Kroger.
