Aside from actual cooking, I vividly remember one of my main jobs was to carefully remove all the Campbell's Labels for Education so I could add them to her stack she collected in her kitchen drawer.
At the end of every visit, she would place that thick bundle of labels in my hand so I could take them to my elementary school that was saving them to earn much needed playground equipment. When I returned to school next, I remember taking that huge bundle of labels secured tightly with a rubber band, setting it on my teacher's desk, and hearing an audible gasp from every table at the sheer number of labels I had collected.
From soup, cereal, and snacks to dairy products, beverages, and school supplies, there are over 2,500 items that can earn points for your school and I've been saving Campbell's labels ever since I was little. Before I had kids, I would give them to my nieces and nephews, but now that I have kids, I have my own helpers in the kitchen whose job it is to remove those labels, clip them, and then collect them in our little tin canister on our counter to take to their own schools.
Many of my go-to easy comfort meals involve Campbell's soup, so we end up with quite the collection in a matter of months. Just in time for back to school, I thought this would be a great time to go through the labels we have saved since June and make sure they were all ready to turn in at the beginning of the school year. Since we've been on the go non-stop for the past few weeks, I thought this would be a great time to whip up one of my favorite easy weeknight dinners with Campbell's. We headed out to Winco to restock our pantry with some of our Campbell's staples, and found everything we needed for one of our favorite family recipes. The recipe is modified from one of our most-used cookbooks, the Campbell's Cooking Companion Cookbook. This book taught me basically everything I needed to know about cooking when I first moved out on my own, and it's still one of the first I grab for reference.
Want to make my almost-famous Campbell's Cheesy Broccoli Pasta? I would highly recommend it. My family devours it, and it's even good for leftovers. It's delicious as is, but what's really great is that you can modify it however you would like and add extra veggies, more cheese, or omit the chicken and it still tastes amazing.Need more recipes?
