Delicious! I also used onion instead of onion powder. I added frozen peas and beans when I added the macaroni. Only two of us so there will be a few meals to go in the freezer!

Another success tonight! Big hit with the family and there’s several meals worth of leftovers!

Although I didn’t use Broccoli, instead I used corn and some sweet potato as well!

My family loved this. So easy and great after a night spent freezing at soccer training. Only change was I used fresh onions instead of the onion powder. Will definitely make again.
