Kraft Kitchens Tips

Healthy Living
Trim 40 calories and 9 grams of fat per serving by preparing with extra-lean ground beef and 2% Milk VELVEETA.
Kid Friendly
Prepare as directed, substituting 1 lb. lean ground beef for the sausage and 1 cup each shredded carrots and zucchini for the 3 cups sliced zucchini. Also, try using a fun pasta shape, such as wagon wheels.
VELVEETA Sausage and Rice Casserole
Omit pasta. Prepare as directed, adding 1-1/2 cups uncooked instant white rice and 1-1/2 cups water to the meat mixture along with the VELVEETA. Increase the baking time to 35 to 40 min. or until rice is tender and casserole is heated through. Makes 8 servings.
