Default "Fake" Lean Cuisine!

I saw a recipe in a magazine that I tried, and it's kinda good!! It's to replace eating a 'lean cuisine' every day at lunch, but the same convenience! still a bit 'pre packaged' but not as completely fake LOL

in a big pot, take some cooked whole wheat penne

toss in a can or two (depending on how much you're making) low fat cream of chicken (or whatever flavour you like) soup with a bit of milk (not too runny)

add in some already cooked leftover chicken

add in a ton of frozen veg (I put in broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, corn, green beans and peas!)

put in ziploc bags or containers and bob's yer uncle

That sounds good Trazey! I've clipped it to add to my list of recipes to try.

I know frozen is so much easier -- but I feel like I can see the difference in my weight most times because of all that salt. So any alternatives are great!

That sounds very yummy. I have freezer friendly tupperware things that I use for large batches of rice, beans, leftovers, etc. I'm going to have to add this to the things I use them for.

Great! Thanks for sharing. I will admit that I fall victim to the Lean Cuisine sometimes. I have eliminated almost all processed food from my diet, but that's the last sticking point. I do try to eat the Kashi or Amy's brands instead, but it's still processed food.
