This recipe was given to me by a friend and coworker. She knew that I would make it low fat as soon as I read it. My family has enjoyed it with a salad and fresh bread or rolls. This may be made ahead and placed in the refrigerator for 24 hours or in the freezer for 1 month.

  • Stir together pasta, margarine, cheese, diced tomatoes, sugar, and salt. Place in a 9 x 13 inch pan.

The first time I made this according to recipe and my family of picky eaters loved it. But then I sprinkled southwest seasoning on chicken breast and cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces added it to the mix and added extra cheese on top and they devoured it. Read More

I'm sorry but this was BAD. To begin with it had an intimidating odor. Also it was kinda bland? It really didn't have much of a taste to it. I could have done something wrong but I'm not willing to attempt to make this again. Read More

Excellent fast and easy. I added some salsa to make it a bit more saucy chunked the cheese and used a bit of Pepper Jack too since we like more cheese and spicy foods...awesome. I'll be sending this recipe to my son in college who needs some easy recipes...this is a DEFINITE keeper. Read More

I tried this dish because it was easy and I was surprised how good it was! Hubby didn't care for it but it is a good weekday meal and one I feel the grandchildren would love. Definitely try it. The leftovers are good too. Read More

The recipe sounded like it would taste too plain so I added chicken with oregano and cayenne and some left over spaghetti sauce I had (about a jar full). It was so good the fam got seconds. Read More
