A family Favourite

In keeping with food topic I thought I'd share a family favourite dinner recipe.  This is what my hubby and boys like to eat.  It is a really simple, easy to cook meal which works well during the week.

Cheesy pasta night (2 adults 4 kids)

To make it quickly;
500g pasta
300ml cheese sauce (can get bisto cheese sauce granules or use low fat cheese spread gently heated with milk)
garlic clove (frozen puree squares for speed)
mushrooms (frozen chopped for speed)
onions (frozen diced for speed)
grated cheese

Boil big pan of water and cook spaghetti/pasta as per instructions.

Make up cheese sauce as per bisto instructions or heat cheese and milk in pan till dissolved.  (Alternatively make a white sauce using flour, butter and milk.  Mix tbsp. flour into melted butter then slowly adding milk and stirring.  Then add grated cheese with tsp of mustard).

Fry onion, garlic and mushrooms in a pan.  One cooked add cheese sauce plus 1tsp of pesto.

Serve pasta with sauce on top and sprinkle grated cheese.  Add more pesto if desired! To increase your 5 a day, add spinach to the sauce or also serve with salad.

Sometimes we add chopped up bacon and peas.
