Recently, I was bored in the kitchen with the same ol’ stuff for lunch.  Looking through the cabinets and the refrigerator, I found inspiration that ended up tasting WONDERFUL!

To fix this, you’ll need:

  • 1  12 oz box pasta (I used elbow macaroni)
  • 1  24 oz jar of spaghetti sauce (your favorite flavor)
  • 12 slices of Kraft singles
  • about 4 cups of frozen tater-tots (or as many as needed to cover the top of a 9×13 casserole dish)

Preheat the oven to the baking instructions for the tater-tots.

Prepare the pasta according to the box, drain. In the pot you boiled the pasta, mix together the pasta and spaghetti sauce.  In a 9×13 casserole dish, pour 1/2 the pasta mix in and even it out.  Unwrap 6 of the cheese slices, placing them evenly across the 1st half of the mix.  Pour over the last half of the mix then cover with the remaining unwrapped 6 slices of cheese.  Now cover that with as many tater-tots as you can fit on there.

Put this in the oven and bake for as long as the tots require.

Ta-dah!!  Depending on how hungry your crew is this will last for a couple of meals… or just one.
