Time is ticking though so get your recipe together, take a great photo of it, and upload it today so you’ll be in the running!  And to get your ideas flowing, check out the Chef Boyardee’s website for some chef-created recipe ideas.  They also asked me to come up with my own original recipe but unfortunately I’m a vegetarian and most of their products are not, so I was limited on ingredients. I did find their pizza kit and boy did it bring back memories!  As a kid this is how we made pizza – there weren’t pizza joints that delivered back then.  When my husband saw the box he told me his family did the same thing!

By the way, did you know there was really a Chef Boyardee? There was!  Check out this really cool NPR story on the man behind the name and his family.  Listen to The Man, The Can: Recipes Of The Real Chef Boyardee : NPR
