Just a note. Our family has been making this for years. When my children were small, working didn't leave alot of time for cooking. They loved Kraft Mac n Cheese, so....it was a logical easy choice. We used jars of spaghetti sauce with the macaroni, or jars of chili, dennisons or whomever. The kids loved it we called it chili mac. Just an old favorite as far as we are concerned!
