For this week’s Works For Me Wednesday, Shannon has asked everyone to stick to a theme. She describes it this way:

It’s 5:15 pm, the kids are hungry, you have a headache, hubby is almost home, and the pantry has three things in it. What is your BEST last-minute meal recipe? Share with everybody this week. We’ll call it Works-For-Me Wednesday: The What-Do-I-Fix? Edition.

One of the standard dinners I fall back on when I am out of time, out of ingredients, or just plain out of ideas is what we call “Macaroni Spaghetti”. It is super simple and has only 3 ingredients that we almost always have on hand.

1 Box Mac and Cheese
1 jar of Spaghetti Sauce
1 lb. cooked ground beef

Make the Mac and Cheese as directed, add in the spaghetti sauce and ground beef. Simmer for a few minutes to heat through and let the flavors combine.

Sprinkle a little shredded cheddar on each serving if you like. We toast bread under the broiler that we have spread with butter, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese, and cut into squares. Add a Honeymooners Salad (lettuce alone – Get it?) to the table and WAH-LAH! Dinner is served!

That’s what works for me when I need a last minute meal. Check out some more great ideas at Rocks in my Dryer [3].
