Hey Hey Hey Fridaaaaaay! How you doin’?

FOUR reasons why Fridays are awesome:

One. We all clock out way before 5. Right, right? Don’t worry, your boss does, too. In fact, because I AM the boss here at Diethood headquarters, and the only employee, I clock out on Thursday…

Two. Netflix all night long!

Three. Saturday doesn’t have to start until I feel like it. Tomorrow, our Saturday will start at 10 a.m. Why? Because I said so. And because Netflix kept me up until 2 a.m.

Four. Mac ‘n Cheese for din din!! Pizza can wait.

Sometimes the simplest things are the most satisfying. For instance, Macaroni and Cheese. How simple, yet so darn good!

Since you and I haven’t had a one-pot pasta in a while, I wanted to share my latest too-many-after-school-activities-can’t-fix-dinner-night din din invention.

You know, I am not one to turn to a drive-thru on a busy night. That’s almost a big no-no around here. BUT! I can totally understand if you do. Completely understand. Seriously. The pressure of doing all these after school things is ginormous, so I feel ya.

BUT BUT BUT. I can kinda help you here. See, if I could, I would prepare this One Pot Spinach & Feta Macaroni and Cheese for you and I would feed you with it by the very large spoonful. However, since I really can’t be in your kitchen, I simplified this deliciousness by throwing it all in one pot and crossing my fingers for a miracle. Luckily for all of us, it worked. HIGH FIVE!

Here’s what, though. This baby demands stirring. Yeah. I learned the hard way. First time I tried making it, I wanted to kick myself so hard because washing the sticky stuff off that pan was close to impossible. I considered throwing it away. So, because I want you to save your pans and your hands, please stir this often. Every 3 minutes is good enough. That’s like 5 stirs. NO biggie.

This pan stops me right in my tracks. YUM!

ENJOY!

    We just had this for dinner. We like soup so I added more milki and.broth than called for. It was absolutely delish. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s lunch to enjoy the little dish of leftovers…it was so good it only served two of us with a bit left over. And I am trying the dryer sheet soaking overnight to try and get pot clean. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Greg

    This was not good at all. It was too sweet and some very odd sensory flavor combos. It was also too liquidy.

    Would probably be better without the almond milk, but honestly I don’t know how salvageable this concept is.

  3. Katerina, just an FYI if you ever end up with a pan that needs scrubbing again fill it with water and put in a dyer sheet or two depending on the size of the pan and let it sit overnight and like magic it will clean very easy. Oh and by the way thank you for the recipe I can’t wait to make it ~ Karen

  4. Kimberly

    How many total servings in this recipe? I see that a serving is a 1-1/2 cup portion but how many portions make up the total recipe?

  5. Cece

    I made this yesterday but with cows milk and penne pasta and it was soooooo delicious, the family loved it! Thanks so much for this ;))

  6. Erica

    Fantastic! My family loved it. My husband even said I could make it when we have guests in a couple of weeks. I usually make Lamb or Beef Bourguignon. So that says alot! thanks for the great recipe.

  7. Wilma Flinstone

    I just made this for our dinner. It was so easy and it is so good. I can not wait for my husband to get home and eat. Hey, I may not even wait for him, lol! I used regular 2% milk, FF feta cheese, extra sharp white cheese and chicken broth because is all I had. Thank you so much for sharing. It only my husband and I, easy dishes are my yo go. This is my first one pot recipe ever and I am hooked. Thanks again!

  8. Lindsay

    Just made this and it was delicious. I used whole cow’s milk and a can of diced tomatoes and only used 1/2 cup of stock. It was still a bit watery but the sauce thickened up as it cooled.

  9. Katie

    This was delicious! I hair made it for dinner. I used extra sharp white cheddar and it was a great kick. I will definitely be making this again!
    Thanks for the recipe.

  10. I always love the photos of one pot meals before and after. There is something so satisfying about seeing the pinwheel of ingredients then the final yummy product.
