Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese that is only FIVE ingredients! And its a dinner you can feel great about giving to your family!

In a small bowl, the Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese has orecchiette pasta, chunked steak, and cubed green peppers.

I am so happy to be partnering with Horizon to bring you this seriously easy and delicious dinner! My family loves Horizon and we appreciate you supporting the brands that make Wine & Glue possible!

So last week we were late to swimming. Which isn’t awesome, because it’s only a half hour class.

(I swear not all of my posts this summer will be about our over-booked extracurricular schedule. Ha! I kid. They totally will be.)

And I want to blame my kids for us being late, but if I search into the depths of my soul, that’s not totally fair. Or is it? I mean, I can pretty much twist anything into being their fault. My muffin top? Legit their fault. Anyway. I digress.

So, we were late to swimming. It was stressful, and annoying, and my kids were not thrilled with me because they knew the truth about who’s fault it was. And . . . they adore swimming. So, this week I got all of my ducks in a row. Those annoying little ducks that like to wander around like a kid chasing a butterfly. And we were five minutes early!

I say to my kids, “Kids! We are five minutes early! Woo hoo!” They look at me with blank boarderline loathing stares. “Isn’t it good we are early? Last week we were late.”

Gavin: “I don’t want to be late. And I don’t want to be early. I want to be right. on. time.”

Ya’ll should be so proud of me. I didn’t even shove him in the pool. ????

Easy Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese

So as you know, my mission this summer is to come up with fast easy dinners that will save our lives. And thanks to Horizon, I’ve found another one! This Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese is *the best.*  It starts with their Organic White Cheddar Cheesy Deluxe. Did you guys know that all you need to make it is the box and a boiling pot of water? For real! It would be perfect for camping!

You add in all the flavors that you love from a Philly Cheesesteak, and you top it with some of Horizon’s amazing provolone cheese. My family loves Horizon’s products. I sometimes joke that I think one of Quinn’s legs is made entirely out of their mac and cheese. They eat it all the time. And I love it because I feel so good about giving it to them. Their sliced provolone is no exception, and it makes for the most delicious, flavorful dinner: Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese. So cheesy, so perfect, and so flippin’ easy. Only five ingredients guys!

This was one of those recipes that barely made it through the photo shoot. I wanted to just keep taking forkfuls right from the pan.

 . . . . and I kind of did.

The Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese has pieces of steak, sliced green pepper, and melted cheese.

    Maybe I’m not counting correctly, but I count 6 ingredients? It’s not a big deal, I was just curious because I was looking through your recipes under 5 ingredient and like none of them only have 5 ingredients lol, so i’m not sure why you are listing them like that? My husband sent me this recipe to try, so I’m going to make it tonight.

    • Lisa Longley says

      You are totally right, Zara. I didn’t count the olive oil :)

    Hi, Lisa. Just found your site and really like the sound of your recipes. They are very tempting. And, your additional commentary is pretty funny! So, I really liked the sound of this recipe (LUV mac and cheese!) and decided to try it. I got already diced onion and gr. pepper from the store as it made it easier to throw together but not sure how much diced pepper it takes to make 1 green pepper and same for onion so just sauteed what looked right and also added a can of sliced, drained mushrooms. Also, subbed breakfast steak for the London Broil as it was less expensive, fairly thin so it was quick to slice. Also, it was easier to find something closer to a pound. Would have had to get almost 2# of the LB. Well, I put it all together and it looked delicious coming out of the oven. And, it was pretty good but maybe I put too much onion, pepper, and/or mushrooms in as it wasn’t that cheesy. But, the flavors are good and I think if I add some more cheese, probably Velveeta of some kind, or an easy, melty, flavorful cheese, that would fix it up. Probably should have followed the recipe exactly but thought I would be adventurous and mushrooms are really good. It was really, really simple to make and I really liked that. I work a long, hard day, always, and it is hard to have to come home and cook a complex dinner so I am always looking for good and easy stuff to make. Thank you for sharing this recipe with all of us!
