Cheesy Beef Tetrazzini - Recipe

This gem of a recipe is quick, easy and quite tasty!
I received it (recipe) in my email last week and feeling a bit adventurous and not really knowing what I wanted to make for dinner I opted to give it a try.

Now Mr. Fussy Eater (Nate) took his plate when served it to him, sniffed it, curled his lip up and asked, " Uh, what is this mom?"

My simple reply - dinner kiddo.

The kid that sniffed his dinner ate his first portion, had seconds and then states that it was pretty good.

I will take that thank you.
