My kids love mac n cheese. My hubby loves mac n cheese. I love mac n cheese. However, no one likes mac n cheese leftovers. It's a dried gooey clump of nasty! You know, it doesn't even retain its cheesy taste. But I hate throwing it away!
So, I came up with a recipe to use that leftover mac n cheese, it makes a thick soup:
one can of diced tomatoes
one large container of chicken stock (32 oz)
one jar of Bertolli's brand Four Cheese Rosa sauce
leftover mac n cheese any amount - if you have a very large batch, double the other ingredients
Heat it in a large pot and break up the mac n cheese while it warms.
That's it! If you want even more flavor, you can add chunks of chicken, white beans, and spinach. I do occasionally, spice it up with red pepper flakes, basil, oregano, and minced garlic (or powder).
It tastes good and everybody seems to like it. And I don't have to throw away food! :)
