Kitchen Tips
Makeover - How We Did It
We made over a favorite KRAFT recipe. Save 90 calories and 14g of fat, including 4g of saturated fat, per serving by preparing with extra-lean ground beef instead of 80% lean ground beef and fat-free milk, and using KRAFT Lite Zesty Italian Dressing and KRAFT Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Made with 2% Milk Cheese instead of the regular products.
Substitute
Substitute 1 can (12 oz.) white tuna in water, drained, for the cooked ground beef.
Make Ahead
Prepare as directed except for baking. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, bake, covered, in 375°F oven 40 to 45 min. or until heated through. Remove from oven; top with remaining cheese. Let stand (uncovered) 5 min. or until cheese is melted.
