Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese

Mac and Cheese is a favorite in this house. I am always looking for ways to reinvent the wheel with this dish. This recipe was developed by having leftover pulled pork that my husband slow cooked on his smoker. I generally freeze the leftovers in small containers for pulled pork nachos, or enchiladas. And now every once and awhile pulled pork mac and cheese.

I made this dish for lunch last weekend when we were working on the belushi. I know my sister-in-law loves my mac and cheese. I even named the dish after her Julie and Josh’s Favorite Mac and Cheese.

This is for all of you who enjoy using leftovers in creative ways. I love being resourceful with the leftovers. My husband and I made chicken parm, with homemade fettuccine noodles & homemade alfredo sauce for his birthday. 

We had some leftover chicken parm in the refrigerator and I was trying to think of a way to reinvent the dish then I remembered making a similar dish with meatballs so I thought I’d give it a try with the parm.

1/2 cup 2% mozzarella shredded

1 1/2 cups homemade marinara sauce

1 large leftover chicken parm breast (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cooking spray a glass deep glass dish 8 by 10″.Set side. 

2. In a medium bowl mix the marinara and cut biscuits and toss to coat. Place evenly in the prepared baking dish.

3. Top the biscuits with the cut up chicken. Spread the meat over the biscuits evenly. Top with the shredded mozzarella cheese and provolone cheese.
