And it's from my new favorite cookbook...seriously 101 different recipes using mac and cheese. There is even a cake recipe in there. I kid you not!
Italian Style Mac and Beef (adapted from here)
1lb ground beef
1 container sliced mushrooms
1 cup water
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1 box mac and cheese
Brown the beef, add the onions and mushrooms and cook until soft. Add water, spaghetti sauce, and cheese packet, stir. Bring to a simmer-add macaroni noodles, then simmer for 7 minutes or until noodles are done.
No really..that's it. And even though pictures don't do it justice...it's really good. And when the kids are eating it and asking for more and more...I'm not gonna complain!
