a family staple - Penne

Alright, I feel a little bad. The closest the food in this next post will ever get to a bento would be on the off chance that it's served as leftovers (and the rare chance that we actually HAVE some left over) - and I have a nagging suspicion it's not very healthy either.

Not sure what exactly you'd call this - in our house, we just say "Let's make penne-broccoli!" and everyone knows what that is :)

What's in it?

  • 8 oz penne
  • 8 oz shrimp or chicken (tonight we used shrimp because we got some when it was on sale at the store)
  • as much broccoli as you like (I usually end up eating most of it)
  • Cream of Chicken soup (we always use Campbell's, because it's easy and it was from one of their advertisements that we got the recipe)
  • 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese, like the kind you would sprinkle over spaghetti, we sometimes use less
  • enough milk to thin out the soup (what we do is put the milk into the soup can so we can get the last of the soup out of it too)

Whew! That was a lot of parenthesis. I used to get in trouble in English class for using parenthesis too often. And trite phrases. Well, a lot of things.

Now an up-close to make your mouth water?
