hey, Tallen, if you want quick'n'tasty without worrying too much about cooking/the niceties of ingredients, on a cold day a can of macaroni cheese mixed with bacon bits is warming and filling. and all you need to do is heat it up :D

also,  a pre-made pizza base (or pack mix where you add 1/2 cup of warm water, mix and rest for 5 minutes then press into pan and cook 5 mins before adding toppings and sticking back in oven)

so, pre-part bake your pizza base, smear it with something tomatoey (like puree or condensed tomato soup to which you can add some garlic), some shredded cheese, thinly sliced hotdogs and tomato if you have it, some onion's good too (and anything else you might want, like bacon bits/shredded ham/pre-cooked leftovers) chuck on some more cheese and (if you have it) green pesto blobs. bung it back in the oven for about 10 minutes till the cheese is melted and things are looking right :D

Nor have I... I don’t even eat anything that comes from a can anymore.

If anyone wants to shortcut with mac & cheese, pick up the frozen entree kind and microwave in a matter of a few minutes, and add some frozen veggies too ... hardly any cleanup, and tastes better!

Son of a  . . . it actually exists.

they do not sell this in the grocery stores here! Maybe because macaroni & cheese is a southern thing?   It would be like canning fried chicken down here. LOL!

There ARE lots of frozen/refrigerated versions here, particularly around the holidays to "Make life in the kitchen easier".  But, I worry about what they put into those things to preserve them on the shelf or in the freezer.

Here’s the brand that I stock my freezer with in a variety of entrees- Stouffer’s. That brand also has a healthier version of different dinners called Lean Cuisine. Btw, this image shows their 20oz Mac n Cheese, but there’s the single size, and a family-size which will do just that ... feed a family.  Darn I’m gettin’ Hungry.

LMAO!  I make it in the slow cooker with freshly grated white and sharp cheddar cheese!
