Sundays are meal prep days at our house. I usually plan out our meals and go grocery shopping for the week. Then we make as much food as we can for the week to make things easier. This past Sunday I was craving macaroni and cheese. You just can’t go wrong with a big pot of comfort food. I found a super easy recipe for One Pot Chicken Alfredo Mac and Cheese that sounded delicious and I knew I had to try it. Then I loaded it with lots of veggies to make it the best one pot mac and cheese meal EVER!
I don’t know about you but you can’t go wrong with any recipe that includes cheese and pasta. And the fact that this is a one pot meal just makes it so much better. I’ve been adding one pot meals to our weekly meal plan on a regular basis because they are so quick and easy. I also love that clean up is a breeze when it comes to one pot meals.
Look at all those veggies. Cheese, pasta, and veggies = yum!
There is one ingredient that makes this recipe better than a regular mac and cheese recipe. My secret ingredient is this new Creamy Basil Alfredo by Bertolli®.
They had me at creamy and basil!
This One Pot Chicken Alfredo Mac and Cheese is a perfect make ahead meal for a few reasons. It comes together in less than 30 minutes so it’s a quick meal. It also makes a lot so you can freeze it or store leftovers in the refrigerator for lunches. I made it on Sunday and stored it in these new Rubbermaid® Brilliance™ food storage containers I found at Walmart.
These bad boys are 100% leak-proof guaranteed, microwave safe, and splatter-proof. They’re also stackable to keep food storage organized and neatly placed in your refrigerator. Plus, they’re crystal clear and stain resistant so you can always see what’s inside. Rubbermaid® Brilliance’s™ food storage containers are designed to make our live’s easier, which means we can trust them to keep up with our everyday demands.
