The school year has started and it’s time to get back to a regular schedule! I realized the other day that we had been winging dinner all Summer long! It kicked me back into reality when my husband jokingly asked me to make him a gourmet dinner. This Summer has been so crazy!
On top of the usual activities, my father in law has had several surgeries, my granddaughter was baptized, and my 18 years old headed off to college last Friday! I’m sure you have had a busy Summer like me! I decided I had to get back on track. I still need to feed my 14 years old and husband! After my husband joked with me about dinner, I came up with Four Cheese Pasta!
When I come up with a new recipe, my hubby and child, are usually super hard to please. Mike gave it a two thumbs up and told me this was a keeper! The four different kinds of cheese make it so creamy and smooth that your mouth will have a party! It only takes 30 minutes to make! Can I get a hallelujah?
