Mystery meal

I know you all know how much I love to knit/craft, but my heart is often in the kitchen. I love to bake, especially. Although I had Thursday off from work due to the snow we received, DH unfortunately had to brave the elements and go to work (3-11pm). Because most of his work is done outside I thought it would be nice of me to make sure he had something yummy when he came home.

Our cupboards (and fridge) were pretty bare, but I managed to whip up a little something delicious. I call it Mystery Meal because I really didn't know how well it would turn out.

I'm happy to say that we both really liked it! Here's what I did:

  • preheat oven to 375
  • boiled 3/4 package of Wacky Mac (cooked, drained, set aside)
  • buttered a dish
  • whisked 3 eggs in a bowl, mixed in Italian seasoning and s&p
  • added it to the Mac, pour into dish
  • cover pasta with a large can of tomato/pasta sauce.. any kind will do.. I used a 4 cheese one I think
  • top with cheese (the more the better, IMO)
  • 20 minutes until cheese melts a bit and sauce bubbles
I'm sure it would taste just fine without the eggs, but I wanted to give it a little more density. I'm sure DH would have liked some meat or something in there. Or a sauce with meat?

And then, because I'm that nice and had just one egg left, I made him some chocolate chip cookies :)


  1. Yummy! I love pasta in any shape or form, unfortunately for me, not very Weight Watcher friendly. Have a great weekend, auntie.

  2. Wasn't it nice to have a snow day? I loved it!
    I like your mystery dish...looks good.
