I love Pillsbury refrigerated dough products. They are super convenient and can be used in so many different recipes.

I used their country biscuits for my Cheeseburger Casserole and Cajun Chicken and Biscuits Casserole.

For my Mars Bar Stuffed Crescent Rolls I used Pillsbury crescent dough.

Today I decided to come up with a recipe for one of their other products.

I’ve only ever used their wiener wraps before to make pigs in a blanket but I love the flavour and texture of the dough.

I thought they would be an awesome shell for some macaroni bites.

I started by cooking some macaroni and then rinsing it in cold water.

I cooled off my macaroni because I didn’t want my cheese to melt when I added it to the pasta. I wanted it to melt later in the oven.

Then I diced up some string cheese and added it to the pasta along with some Bolognese sauce.

I pressed out the wiener wraps before placing them in greased muffin cups to make the pieces of dough larger.

It is important to have some dough hanging out the sides of the muffin cups because you will need to fold it over the macaroni.

I filled each dough cup with macaroni and then folded the ends of the dough over top pressing down gently on the seams to seal them.

Then I baked the macaroni bites until they were a beautiful golden brown.

Enjoy this delicious snack straight from the oven and it will be oozing with gooey cheese.
