Poor Families Manicotti-Very Kid Friendly
Recipe for Poor Man's Manicotti
Poor Man's Manicotti
I would like to share an fantastic easy recipe for all you who have picky eaters in your home as I do. My kids are 12 and 13, Girl and boy respectively. My kids are picky but a rule in our house is whatever is made for dinner is what you will eat.
- One bag any styled noodles you have in your kitchen. I used Penne and mix that with elbow macaroni noodles.
- Two bottles of Ragu spaghetti sauce- Again any style you have in your home. I used one original bottle and one garden vegetable. It is hard to get my kids to eat any veggie. This recipe rocked their socks off.
- Parmesan Cheese
- Colby jack cheese or any type you have in the house.
- Italian seasoning
- Garlic powder
- Chunk chicken can (add garlic powder on this)
Get casserole dish and spread spaghetti sauce on the bottom of pan. Add in the chunk chicken and spread it evenly around casserole dish. sprinkle cheese, Parmesan and Italian seasoning, add noodles, do this pattern again.
Put in oven at 350 degrees and keep in for one hour.
I served a baguette I had in my freezer and olive oil in a small dish that my kids dipped in the oil and sprinkled Parmesan on top. I lit a candle and had a rose in a vase on the table.
My kids thought I worked all day on this and told me it was their favorite meal. Each child had three servings.
To You an Yours
