I made chicken patties parm from four frozen chicken patties that were taking up space in my freezer - first seared them on the griddler, then put them in a baking pan into which I poured bottled marinara and loaded the patties with more sauce, lots of cheese, and a couple of leftover slices of capocollo Shoved it in the oven until all the cheese melted. Served it with mac and cheese - not quite Kraft's, but close - cooked about 12 oz. of ziti, drained, returned to the pot along with half a stick of butter and some heavy cream. Added a bottle of Ragu double cheddar, then a couple of handfuls of grated cheese - sharp cheddar, five cheese Italian, mozzarella - added a little bit more cream, then poured it into a baking dish. Threw more grated cheese on top and then topped the whole beautiful mess with French's French fried onions. Baked it until cheese melted and the sauce is bubbly.
Holy crap, that was good! And not one purchased-in-Whole-Foods organic ingredient in either recipe. Now that's American cuisine!
