Baked Macaroni and Cheese With Meatballs

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Lorac

When our boys were young, a very long time ago, I would let them choose a meal whenever my husband and I were going out for dinner. Their all time favourite was Kraft mac and cheese. This is the stay at home, family supper version.

I followed the recipe exactly except I couldn't find Frozen italian meatballs so I used Turkey Meatballs instead. Maybe the Italian spices would have added something to the macaroni and cheese, otherwise, this dish was a little bland. The few tomato slices we had on top really helped it, so maybe next time I will add a can of diced tomatoes. It is a very good recipe, I just think it needs to be tweaked to my family's tastes. Thanks for the recipe Lorac!
