If you were to visit our house for dinner, you would find healthy food nine times out of ten.
And I can honestly report that our kids willingly eat these dinners without complaining. Well, for the most part anyway.
Some times there is a little grumbling. Like when we told them this Loaded Cauliflower Soup was made from potatoes. For the record, we didn’t want that knowledge to taint their opinion of the hearty soup.
Both of them loved it and totally thought it really was a potato soup, so I’m calling that a dinner win.
Our kids really have picked up some good healthy eating habits from watching us practice what we preach. Every time our kids scarf down these Parmesan Garlic Shrimp Zucchini Noodles or Healthy Stuffed Peppers, it makes me happy.
Happy that they are learning at a young age to be mindful of what they eat and to get lots of water and exercise.
But like any normal healthy family, we do enjoy cheesy pasta for dinner and M&M Blonde Brownies for dessert from time to time. Moderation is key after all.
A few years ago I made these Chicken Bacon Alfredo Lasagna Rolls for dinner one night, and our entire family loved them.
I loved them too for a few different reasons. One because they are so easy to make and taste amazing. And two because you get lasagna without all the work and time baking it. Comfort food that doesn’t take a ton of time in the kitchen is the best.
For this recipe I grabbed a jar of cheese sauce at the store to smother these cheddar broccoli chicken lasagna rolls in.
How to make Cheddar Broccoli Chicken Lasagna Rolls:
- Start by cooking your pasta noodles. When there is only two minutes left on the timer, go ahead and throw the chopped broccoli into the water too. This will cook it slightly, so it isn’t crunchy in your rolls later.
- Scoop the broccoli out with a slotted spoon first, then drain the water from the noodles. Go ahead and rinse them off and lay them on some paper towels while you make the filling. You could also put them back in the pan with some olive oil to keep them from sticking.
- Whisk together the milk and cheese sauce. Add some to the bottom of the pan to keep the rolls from sticking.
- Mix together the cheeses, chicken, garlic, and broccoli and spread it out on the rolls. Gently roll the up and place in the pan.
- Smother them in the remaining cheese sauce and shredded cheese and place them in the oven.
- Set the table and get ready to eat because dinner will be ready before you know it.
