One Dish 30 Minute Meal: Southwestern Macaroni Bake

Healthy? No way! Delicious? Yes way!

The weather is cold, and we have been cuddling up in blankets while watching classic movies together as a family tonight. We all wanted some comfort food for dinner, and the choices were limited without having to make a trip to the market. I mixed a couple of random ingredients that I had in the cupboard to make this killer casserole.

If your kids don’t like anything with some spice, I would recommend substituting the ro-tel with just a can of crushed tomatoes.
