What a better welcome than Macaroni and Cheese

As every college student knows, Macaroni and Cheese is a staple food source: in less than 20 minutes, you can have the ooey-gooey goodness of pasta and cheese all rolled into one. What's not to love?

Well, at the end of a semester when everyone is tired of living off of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cereal, and macaroni and cheese, the prospects for enjoying cheesy pasta seem dire. But fear not, dear readers, because I made the most DELICIOUS macaroni and cheese ever for dinner tonight. Simply by adding some veggies, garlic powder, and breadcrumbs, I transformed this bland dish into something almost magical.

So without further ado, the method:

1 teaspoon canola oil
1 box of macaroni and cheese
3/4 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen corn
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 Italian bread crumbs

1. Make the mac. If you don't know how to do this by now, well... that's just sad- there are directions on the box.
2. In a bowl, microwave the corn and peas (covered with water) for 2 minutes. Drain water.
3. In a frying pan on medium-high heat, heat oil and add cooked macaroni, peas and corn, and garlic powder.  Once hot, add bread crumbs. Stir everything together. Eat (duh).

So there you have it - delicious, nutritious (so many vegetables!), and pretty easy. Say goodbye to dreary old Macaroni and Cheese, and hello to tastiness!
