Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a few adjustments to the original recipe. 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The cheese sauce added to the meat became watered down, and you could not taste it. The cheese sauce added to the meat became watered down, and you could not taste it. The mixture was not cheesy at all. So, we add the cheese packet from a shells and cheese box, and it made a big difference. We also added a can of Rotel, and it gave it great flavor. Next time, I think I will add the cheese a different way, probably just mix it with the mac along with the seasonings so it doesn't get lost in the process.

Now I brown the hamburger, while boiling the macaroni, drain hamburger mix in a can of cream of mushroom, a can of undrained rotel diced tomatoes, and the cheese sauce. Then I drain very well the macaroni and mix it with the hamburger mixture...kids and husband loved the spicy creaminess!

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!

I have made it several times since then, and all I do is add a little Mrs. Dash to the beef as I brown it. My kids request it at least once a week.
