When I think of Knorr side dishes I think of making a meal and having them on the side, but I recently learned that there is a Free Recipe Book that had lots of great recipes that use the knorr sides to make meals! We made the Cheddar and Corn Chowder that uses the cheddar brocolli Knorr side dish along with Fresh Ingrediants and it makes a tasty meal! I was shocked at how good it tasted coming from a package food item! If you have a Giant Eagle near you you will find them there!
It is super easy to make and if you are in need of a quick dinner you can make this chowder, grab a loaf of fresh bread from the store and a salad and you are done!
