Meatballs and cheesy noodles is a tasty and satisfying meal

Nothing says ambition quite like shopping at Gordon Foods and purchasing a big bag of meatballs for a family of three. Thinking I had spaghetti sauce in my cupboard, I was all set up to make a delicious meal. Unfortunately, I was mistaken and left scratching my head trying to figure out what to make. Since I was in the mood for pasta, I thought I would whip up some homemade mac and cheese and pair it with the meatballs. What a tasty combination!

This is an easy dinner dish, reminiscent of Rachael Ray's classic, 30 Minute Meals. In about half an hour, you'll have a delicious meal the whole family will love!
