Philly Cheesesteak Pasta {GIVEAWAY}

Some of y'all might remember that I recently mentioned that I am in the process of moving. It's been a slow process to say the least. And it's hawt out, y'all. HOT (All caps hot!) We're clearly smart planners when it comes to picking the perfect moving time. But we're getting there. One box at a time. Along with that, we have the fun task of trying to deep clean two homes. The house we're moving into needs some love and attention. Poor gal has been a bit neglected in recent years. 
So, anyway, my point to mentioning all of that, in addition to your sympathy, is the food planning has been, well, nonexistent. And let's face it, no matter how good the food is your picking up to eat while on the run, it gets old. You know what I'm talking about. If you see one more burger, pizza or sub, you're gonna hurl. Yep, I'm there. And I'm not ashamed to admit to using a little help in the kitchen, just to get me through the week and not have to eat another cold sandwich or hamburger. Even if we are just sitting criss-cross applesauce on the floor in a circle in an empty house while eating. So enter Momma's little helper. VELVEETA Cheesy Skillets. Have y'all started to see these in your grocery stores yet? They are basically a meal in a box.
It comes with pretty much everything you need. 
All you gotta do is add the meat and water (or in some cases milk). 
So as you are going down the grocery aisles; hot, sweaty and exhausted and your kids are acting like a bunch of wild wolves and you're starting to wonder if they can possibly be related to you, grab a box or two of this stuff and you can hurry out of dodge. All I gotta do is turn the box around and boom! all I need to make it is on the back of the box. No hard thinking/planning involved. Halleluyer! No oven needed and it's all made in ONE skillet. I can grab a bag of those microwaveable steamed veggies and Momma has got dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less! 
VELVEETA has a pretty hilarious ad campaign with these Cheesy Skillet dinners. I'm sure you've seen the commercials recently to promote these skillet meals. This one is my favorite - hilarious!

VELVEETA also wants to remind folks what their skillet is for. So, They went on a popular auction website (you know the one!) and bought more than a thousand skillets. Then returned those skillets to the sellers along with a box of VELVEETA Cheesy Skillets. VELVEETA thought since so many folks were selling skillets, they must've forgotten what they are used for! They seriously did this. So funny!
All I can say is, these meals have totally saved my sanity and my weeknight supper.
And my sanity. Did I mention my sanity? 
Ingredients:
1 box VELVEETA Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit (Philly Cheesesteak Style)
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cups water
 4-6 pieces toast
Additional Add-ins: Put in more fresh green peppers for added pepper flavor. Or even mushrooms too! Also, you can add a couple of dollops of sour cream in the mixture and stir well. It gives it an extra bit of zing and creaminess. Or top with French's Fried Onions for added crunch!
Directions:
Brown and crumble ground beef along with chopped onions (and added green pepper, if using.)
Once beef is cooked thoroughly, drain excess grease.
Add in seasonings (from included packet) and pasta. Stir in 2 cups of water. 
Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes (until pasta is tender.)
Then add in the Liquid Gold of VELVEETA. Mmmm...cheese sauce. Stir well.
Serve pasta by itself or over toast. 
Enjoy! #whatmyskilletisfor

Any Velveeta recipe will be great.

Dorothy Molski said...

I can sympathize with your situation. We are also moving
& sorting through 42 years
of stuff.
Had a big garage sale,
packing & keeping list
of what needs to still
be done. Aging FAST!!!!!
This looks & sounds
like a meal that would
fill the bill & even
be good to make for
any helpers that sow up.
Love almost all your recipes!

Terri Ball said...

I follow you here, fb, pintrest--I do love velvetta, been using it for years (against some whole food people objections--seriously folks, if it is this good, just use moderation LOL). But in all this why do all blogs- do the twitter thing? I do not have this service nor desire it. But I still want the extra entry. This is a financial thing for me and I'm sure there are others that agree, I am sure there are many tweets no one ever reads. I at least will tell people -face to face- OMG - that it is good stuff. LOL Thanks for all the good food, give aways, and letting me rant....

Ging said...

Anything that includes cheese.

Heather King said...

I would have fresh corn and seasoned green beans.
