I made this largely using leftovers, in went some chicken mince, ham, chopped tomato and pureed carrot along with the pepper, mushrooms & onions. I didn't use the butter or milk though. I combined the cooked meat & vegies with the tomato soup & then mixed it all in to the microwaved mac & cheese with some extra shredded tasty cheese. Voila, dinner ready in about 10 mins. Even toddler DD ate this one. Thanks!
This was very easy and very yummy. I will definitely make it again.
