Hardly Homemade Mac'N Cheese

Not for you cooking purists, but did you know that mixing a can of cream of mushroom soup (I use the low fat) in with your cooked blue box pasta turns it into a creamy, delicious treat?

I do now.
So you just add the can by itself? You don't thin it with milk or anything?

Nope...just as is. I was amazed at what a difference it made.

By the way, add the soup...throw away the can.

Hey, I have both items in my cupboard, maybe I will try it today as well!

Personally I don't think there is much that a can of mushroom soup can't fix.

But please don't tell my chef instructors or customers I said either of these two things!

Sounds great! You could even add some browned hamburger to the mix!

I add a can of tomato soup and extra cheese. And sometimes I put it in a baking dish with bacon slices on top. That is how my kids like me to make mac and cheese.
