Hi Moms!

I found this great recipe in one of my cookbooks called Down Home Cooking Without the Down Home Fat. My kids have always liked this one. I hope yours do too! I have also found other free recipes on the Cooking for Busy People website.

Pizza Pasta

This is a fun and inexpensive way to spruce up a plain box of macaroni and cheese.

2 (7 1/4-ounce) boxes macaroni and cheese mix

1 envelope Butter Buds

1 cup skim milk

1 (14-ounce) jar pizza sauce with ground sausage

8 ounces fat-free shredded cheese (optional)

• Prepare the macaroni and cheese according to the package directions substituting Butter Buds for the butter and 1 cup skim milk for 1/2 cup milk.

• Preheat the oven to broil. Transfer the macaroni to an oven-safe dish.

• Stir in the pizza sauce.

• Top with the cheese, if desired.

• Broil for 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

• Serve hot.

Note: This can be made in advance, frozen and baked at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes when needed.

Sounds good! I bet pepperoni, and alot of other pizza toppings would be good in this as well.
