Chef Boyardee: Think Outside Of The Can

Chef Boyardee

As a kid I LOVED Chef Boyardee.  I loved their pizza (still do!) and occasionally I got their ravioli as a special treat for dinner.  Even though I now have kids of my own I still enjoy their food.  As a busy mom, who likes simple, healthy meals I was excited when when Mom Central asked me to be a part of their latest Chef Boyardee campaign.


They sent me a huge box full of items to help me prepare a Chef Boyardee party.  It included a a bunch of colorful nesting mixing bowls, a Curious Chef measure and prep kit, Le Creuset bakeware, Chef Boyardee coupons and some fun Chef Boyardee brand goodies (matching aprons, a chef’s hat, & notepads).  We had just about all we needed for a great dinner party!

 In one dish we made the Ravioli Lasagna.

In the other we made my own creation.  It was Chef Boyardee’s Beefaroni covered with my favorite baked macaroni and cheese recipe.  It was yummy!


I have to say that I love Chef Boyardee recipes because they are so simple to make!  Both recipes were a huge hit with everyone who was over that night and I know my family can’t wait to try some of the other Chef Boyardee recipes.
