The other night was one of those nights. Josh worked late and I was in charge of making dinner and entertaining Max. Not such an easy task! But thanks to another simple and delish weeknight meal, all was well in our household!
2 tbsp butter(i use land o' lakes light butter)
1 tbsp olive oil
LOTS of Old Bay(or a little, whatever ya like)
|line a baking pan with foil and place your filets on the pan|
|top the filets with pats of butter and generously season with the Old Bay|
|line a baking sheet with foil, spray with cooking spray(I use canola), layer your asparagus and season with salt and pepper, drizzle with lemon juice and spray with a little more cooking spray|
|mmmm, I heart these pretty green spears - roast them at 375 for about 15 mins|
|while your asparagus is roasting, add your macaroni to a saucepan(ours was leftover macaroni from the other day, but if you're cooking yours just use the pan you boiled the pasta in). add 1 cup chicken broth, salt, pepper, garlic clove and your cream cheese and let is cook on medium high until the cheese is melted and creamy.|
|last, add your lemon juice and give it a stir. let it cook on low until your asparagus is done.|
|cut your roasted asparagus up into bite size pieces and add it to your macaroni.|
This is another thing that can be varied SO many ways. Don't like asparagus? Use broccoli! Wanna add mushrooms, go ahead. Make it how you(and your family) prefer!
|so easy, so fast, and goes with anything(or can be a main dish all by it's lovely self!)|
|delicious weeknight meals in a flash - what's better?|
