I made a few adjustments to the original recipe. I used the Kraft Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese. I added salt and pepper, garlic and onion powder and the seasoning packet that came with the mac and cheese to the browning meat. After the meat was browned I added the pack of cheese to the meat and mixed it up, then added the cooked noodles. I threw in some shredded cheese as well to make it cheesier. Then baked it in a casserole dish for about 15 minutes. My kids had three helpings each so I say it was a hit.
It was very easy to make but the taste wasn't very good...I don't think I will be making this again
I'm sneaky and I added a can of pumpkin puree in order for my kids to get some vegetable fiber and vitamin C. If you use a whole can, you'll need to add some more cheese to cover the pumpkin flavor. I had some left-over Velveeta in the fridge that worked great!
