Very easy dish. I added more carrots and zucchini for some extra nutrition and the kids ate every last noodle. Good way to get the kids to eat their veggies.

I adapted this to the Old Fashioned MAc and Cheese. I just added the carrots and zucchini to that. Cuts back on the sodium, and makes it healthier. The Low Carb pasta on the market is good for it too. My dad can have Low CArb but not hte regualr and you still can get a meal out of it. Somewhat healthy, and with the veggies it's wonderful.

I love this recepie! It's quick, it's easy, and it freezes well. The only thing I do different is add chicken. I make it in bulk and freeze it in individual portions. On busy days all we have to do is throw it in the microwave. Since I add chicken to mine all I have to do is add a glass of milk and some fruit salad (made very popular to my toddler by the Wiggles). Talk about making life easy. On those days where you feel you can barely cook the pasta, much less the chicken, then chicken nuggets can easily be added instead.

Talk about quick & easy! By adding the veges in with the macaroni you cut back on clean up too! My picky eaters loved it and you can have fun with it my adding different vegetables!

This is a great idea ... it's colorful and gets the kids used to veggies. Before I would make this for my children or for myself, there would have to be a healthier alternative to the mac and cheese. Kraft, what about whole wheat pasta ... less sodium ... and are there hydrogenated oils in that? You're going in the right direction by changing your advertising ... bravo, keep going!

I will make this recipe again and I will replace the zucchini with string bean. We love carrots. ( you can use pease,yellow bean,or chopped green or red pepper). why do this recipe had so much sodium?? why can't you cut the soduim in half in this recipe. it will taste better I know. this recipes had been around for a long time. I used to make this recipe when my daughter was a little girl. and it is better when you have less soduim. thank you

The only thing that I have added this recipe is little sausages, or meat source so it it a complete meal for my family. They gobble it up an never know that it is good for them. Keep up the good work Kraft!

This recipe is high in sodium, that is why I do not make it very often. Kraft, can you please cut out some of the sodium? But when I do make it, I take finely chopped onions, green and/or red peppers, carrots, mushrooms and sautee them in connola or olive oil before adding them to the mac & cheese. I also add a little evaporated milk (in place of regular milk) and Velveeta Cheese. I have never tried zuccini or cucumbers but will do that next time.

This sound so good and so good for you. But I like to add fresh tomato and cucumber or peppers cut up in small pieces. I add them to the macaroni after draining and then add the cheese.
