I recently hosted a Chef Boyardee house party where we had the chance to test out some new Chef Boyardee recipes with a few friends. We tried out Chef Boyardee’s Ravioli Lasagna, Pepperoni Spaghetti Bake, and Taco-roni recipes. The simplest to make was the Taco-roni; you only have to heat up a few ingredients and stir them together! My personal favorite was the Ravioli Lasagna, which adds cheese and spinach to Chef Boyardee ravioli for a real quick and easy dinner. You can watch the following video of Chef George Duran making the Ravioli Lasagna so you can see for yourself just how simple it is to make.
Party guests enjoyed all three recipes, with varying preferences. All were amazed you could take a Chef Boyardee can and remix it into a full dish with a few added ingredients. The kids enjoyed the Pepperoni Spaghetti Bake the most, probably because of it’s pizza-ish qualities. This was a dish that a friend who helped me out with the party had made previous to the event. She had found that the dough base of the dish needed more seasoning for her taste. When she made it again for the party, she tweaked the recipe a bit by seasoning the dough mix with pepper, garlic, and other spices.
I asked my guests to share with us what they thought of the Chef Boyardee recipes and what they might change, if anything. Though nervous about being on camera at first, they were great sports and played along. Here’s what ModernMami.com Chef Boyardee party guests had to say:
