The reason I gave this a 5-star rating is because my kids loved it, they are 2 and 4-1/2 and are becoming hard to please. I didn't use a boxed dinner for this, though. I used my own macaroni and a combination of Velveeta cheese as well as some Kraft shredded that I had on hand. Sharp cheddar works well. I added slightly extra milk to it so that after it baked it would still be creamy and not dry. They ate it right up and wanted more.
