Add 1 package Rice A Roni 4 cheese blend plus seasoning packet
2.5 cups of hot water
1 TBS butter or margarine
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 c. of chopped baby carrots
1 c broccoli floretes broken into small pieces
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and let her rip for 15 minutes or so. Stir it once in a while. I like my broccoli well done, but if you don't, you can add it later in the process. When everything is cooked, add halved cherry tomatoes and let them warm through 5 minutes or so. I didn't do this because I don't like them.
Quick and easy weekday supper!

Let her rip on high until the apples are done to your liking. I like mine fairly soft so I let it go 2 and a half hours or so. I checked it every 30 minutes.

- Place on parchment paper covered cookie sheet.
- Bake @ 350° for 13-15 minutes or until choc. chop dough is cooked. Let sit 3-4 minutes. Remove to wire rack.

If you can have corn, add one of the small cans.
Bring to a boil and simmer everything together for 15 minutes. You can eat it now, but it's better if you put the whole works in the fridge and reheat it the next day. Something magical happens in the ice box.
Serve with fat free sour cream and low fat sharp cheddar cheese.
