It’s week 4, the final week of the 2012 Meal Maker Challenge! This week we were asked to feature Chef Boyardee in our recipe.

My husband and I  never been that huge of a fan of pre made canned pasta, however, when you put a grown up spin on it  it can be mouth watering!  There were so many directions you could go with this recipe. I used what I had on hand and what I knew the crew would eat. The aroma of the tomatoes and italian spices was just captivating.

The whole family was impressed and couldn’t believe it originated from a can.  This was really quick and simple.  What I think I liked even more was it was a one pot dish so it made for easy clean up.
