  • My daughter's favorite! Mix cooked pasta, can of tomatoes, chicken and mozzarella cheese. Place in baking dish. Top with mixture of Italian bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Put a little butter on top of that and bake for about 10 minutes.

  • cook noodles, add mayo (or miracle whip)- enough to cover noodles well when mixed, shredded carrots- about 1/2 cup or more depending on how many noodles you made, salt and pepper to taste. easy, quick macaroni salad!

  • In a skillet coated with non-stick cooking spray (I use olive oil) sauté onion, garlic and hot pepper for about 3 minutes to soften. Add chili powder and cook briefly. Add tomatoes, oregano and cumin and bring to a boil. Add pasta, corn and zucchini and simmer 15 minutes until pasta is just tender. Stir in beans and olives. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Transfer bean mixture to a shallow 2 quart casserole. Top with taco shells or tortilla chips and cheese. Bake for 10 minutes to melt cheese. If casserole is assembled in advance and chilled, increase baking time to 20 minutes or until heated through. Top with sour cream at the table.
