Recipe of the Week: Beefy Tomato Mac-N-Cheese Casserole

This delicious casserole uses that American family staple, Kraft Mac-n-Cheese. I make this often. My kids love it. Serve with a tossed salad to redeem some nutritional value!

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pkg. Kraft macaroni and cheese
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce (I use canned Hunt's)
  • 4 ounces shredded Mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown ground beef and add salt and pepper to taste. Drain of excess fat. At the same time, prepare macaroni as package directs.

Add to browned beef: tomato sauce and cheese sauce mix from mac-n-cheese package. Simmer 3 minutes. Add Mozzarella cheese. Cook until cheese melts.

Place macaroni in large casserole and add 2 tablespoons butter. Mix. Add ground beef mixture to macaroni. Mix well. Place in oven uncovered for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
