This isn't too far off from what I would do for chicken pot pie usually, but the hashbrowns would usually be regular potatoes, and I would usually have carrots as well as the other veggies included. I also don't particularly love the crust on chicken pot pie, so this was perfect because I only used one leftover refrigerated pie crust. So all around, this was lovely. Away we go. :)
-1/4 c butter, divided
-2 tablespoons flour
-1 cup heavy cream
-1 cup milk
-1/2 cup corn
-1/2 cup frozen peas
-3/4 cup frozen hashbrowns
-2 chicken breasts
-refrigerator pie crust
In a skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Cook the chicken, turning once, until no longer pink in the center.
Whisk in the flour to make a roux.

These were easy, and although the rolls took a little while to bake, that was pretty much the longest part of the process. The fries also took a little while, but it was still easy. I hope you enjoy!
-frozen dinner rolls
-1 lb ground beef
-cheese slices (I used one slice for 4 sliders)
-Worcestershire sauce, to taste (I probably used just under a teaspoon)
-onion powder to taste (I used probably half a teaspoon)
Bake the rolls according to package directions.
Start the french fries. This was the second longest part of the meal, so I started them early. Bake according to package directions.
In a small bowl, mix together the beef, Worcestershire sauce, and onion powder. Shape into small patties.
Slice the rolls in half to make a little hamburger bun. Place the meat onto the "bun" and add any desired condiments.

-half box of pasta (about 8 oz, I used rotini)
-half can of diced tomatoes
-2 tablespoons garlic powder
-1 tablespoon onion powder
-1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
-1/2 cup water
-3 cups cheese, shredded-I used three types: asiago, mozzarella, and parmesan, about 1 cup each.
In a large pot, boil some water. Add the pasta and cook until just al dente. Drain and set aside.
While the pasta is cooking, in a medium sauce pan over medium/medium high heat, add in the tomatoes, water, garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
When the sauce has reduced down, add to the pasta and stir to coat.
