Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F). If not using a 12 inch heatproof pan, lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish. (I will verify the dish size when I make this.)
  2. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until just tender, drain and set aside.
  3. While waiting on the pasta to cook, heat a large non stick pan on medium heat, add the oil. When hot, add the onion and cook until softened, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the chicken and steak seasoning, stir and cook until the chicken until browned, it cooks further in the oven. Drain any liquids from the pan.
  5. To the pan add the tomatoes, tomato paste, mustard, and dill relish. Simmer for a few minutes then turn off the heat. Stir in the pasta and stir to coat well.
  6. If using a oven proof pan, smooth out the mixture and add the shredded cheese evenly on the the top, place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the mixture bubbles and the cheese melted in.
  7. If using a baking dish, transfer the pasta mixture to a 9x13 baking dish, spread out evenly and add the shredded cheese evenly on the top and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the mixture bubbles and the cheese melted in.
  8. Sprinkle with diced tomatoes and salt and pepper as desired and serve.
Recipe Notes

Variant: 1. Use ground turkey in place of ground chicken.

  1. Cook the ground beef in a non stick pan until cooked through season with salt and pepper to your liking, drain the fat.
  2. While the beef is cooking, make the gravy in a small sauce pan. When the gravy is prepared and the beef is drained, add gravy to the beef and mix together, cover and set aside.
  3. If using canned corn, open and drain then set aside. If using fresh corn, cook that then cut off the cob. If using frozen corn, thaw that.
  4. Now make the mashed potatoes and the mac and cheese either according to the packages or certainly make from scratch.
  5. Preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F), spray a casserole dish with olive oil or grease lightly with butter.
  6. Add the mashed potatoes to the casserole dish and spread evenly, top with the mac and cheese, then the corn, then the beef and gravy, and top that with the shredded cheese.
  7. Bake until the cheese is melted and starting to brown, I am guessing maybe 20 to 30 minutes.
  8. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I make it, there is beef and cheeses to consider with this, I will say fair priced for now.

This sounds really good, and is a modified recipe based on making the mac & cheese from scratch instead of boxed. This seems like a long winded recipe, just read through it, it is not that bad, the homemade part takes a bit more but the results will be much better. On my to cook list for sure. Links to the shortcuts are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat a pot of salted water to boiling then cook the pasta until just tender, drain and set aside.
  2. While the water is heating for the pasta and for the pasta to cook, go ahead and heat a large non stick pan then add the bell peppers, onion, and ground beef, when the beef is good and browned, drain, then mix in the taco seasoning and add the drained tuna and mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are wilted and softened. Remove from heat and mix into the drained pasta, set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, warm the milk until it is simmering then set it aside.
  4. In a large heavy-bottomed stock pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, whisk in the flour and cook the mixture, whisking constantly, until it turns light brown in color and has a slightly toasted aroma, about 3 minutes. Whisk in the dry mustard.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat then slowly whisk the warm milk into the flour mixture. Continue whisking constantly to avoid any lumps. (The mixture will become very thick and then thin out gradually until it is smooth.)
  6. Return the pot to the stove over medium-high heat and cook the mixture while whisking constantly until it has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste and reduce the heat to medium. Whisk in the Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses until they are melted and the cheese sauce is smooth.
  7. Add the pasta mixture to the cheese sauce and stir to mix together and heat to warm everything through, serve.
Recipe Notes

I will price this after I make it, but for now will say low cost.
