  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

    Thank you so much! It was a win with everyone.
    I did change it up a bit with what I had. Only one tin of tomatoes, used beef stock instead of
    stock cubes and. cubes and used brown rice instead of pasta.
    Don’t know if I could fluke it again but fussy adult son love, love, loved it!
    Oh and I added a little bit of hot chilli sauce.
