My Great Grandmother proly wouldn’t approve a lot of my italian recipes because I jam them with cheese and garlic. Well, she’d atleast pat me on the head and sing me an Italian song. For what it’s worth we all have probably made a quick penne dish at one point in our life. This is one of the same and left a memory in my brain. Quick and semi-cheap I cooked this one in a deep pan with smaller almost square footprint 12x10x5 deep. Cheese is everything and I wouldn’t use anything cheaper than Kraft and highly recommend Tillamook. I cooked the meats together.

➕ Nutrition - About

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. None of these recipes came from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits. If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
