Mexican Pasta Bake
When it comes to dinner recipes, I need things that are easy to prep and don’t need to me to watch over them much while they cook. My kids like to be in the kitchen area with me so I need to be able to get dinner made while I keep an eye on them. I also need our recipes to have flavors and ingredients that are family friendly.
This Mexican Pasta Bake meets all of those requirements so I was pretty excited as I put it together last week. Carrigan and I took a quick shopping trip to Kroger to get everything we needed, including Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican that I knew would add a bit of extra flavor to our dinner!
Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican is one of our favorite ingredients because it adds creamy, smooth flavor and off-the-block freshness while still giving me the convenience I need when I’m making dinner for my family!
