One Pot Lunch #2

Here's another recipe for a One Pot Lunch. It's again inspired by not wanting to heat the house and not having tons of groceries in the house but still having several kids to feed! The main ingredients are a couple of kid favorites -- macaroni and cheese and hot dogs!

One Pot Lunch

Two boxes macaroni and cheese
Several hot dogs
1 cup mixed vegetables
Shredded cheese
Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper

Boil the macaroni and cheese from both boxes. When it gets close to being finished, add the vegetables. When it's almost done, drain the pasta and vegetables and mix in the milk and cheese from the packages. Add salt and pepper if you like. Toss in the hot dogs and let it sit for a minute so they get warm. Sprinkle shredded cheese and Parmesan cheese on top.

Hi! Saw your blog on the foodie blog roll! We do a lot with Macaroni and Cheese... I haven't thought to add Parmesan. That sounds really yummy!

Have you tried tuna and peas in it? My kids like that a lot better than tuna sandwhiches. Or diced tomatoes and olives. It never ceases to amaze me what you can do with a box of pasta and some cheesy sauce!
