If you like this combination of flavors this is your recipe. I loved it but I like ham and pinapple pizza too! I could of eaten the whole pan. Thank me for being the "brave one" and thank Karen for posting!

Very good. Great for when you want something different for mac and cheese. I cooked the green pepper and onion with the ham for a little bit before adding them to the macaroni.

Sounds like simplicity and joy! Can't wait for my shopper to get me the (Cheez Whiz). I can't have the green pepper or onion but even still (allergies). The ham? Great place to use some of that sliced ham that was on sale and think of the fun style macaroni that's available (how about wheels). Try this one. You'll love it, brings back memories of the kids when they were little.

This was good and I would make it again. I took it to a potluck and got a lot of complements on it. The only differences were that I had double the macaroni & double the Mexican dip & half the onions. update: I made a modified version of this recipe recently. Box of Macaroni&Cheese, a can of pineapple, couple scoops of salsa, & a bunch of leftover ham. It was pretty good!

Very tasty! I give it 5 stars, my husband 4.5 (that's way higher than normal) and my two daughters give it a 3... they ate their first servings but didn't ask for seconds. I did make a few changes based on what I had in my pantry. I used two boxes of mac-n-cheese (similar to kraft). It was the powdered cheese kind, so when I prepared the sauce I added two tbs of milk and two tbs shredded cheddar to make the sauce a little creamier for the extra ingredients. I also used 2c of ham (and there was plenty). My family loves hawaiin pizza- so I added 2/3 of a 20oz can of pineapple tidbits. (My family agreed that it wouldn't hurt to add the entire can. -Keep in mind that we really like pineapple- If your family doesn't, that much would be overkill.) I needed something quick and easy and I definitely would not have come up with this on my own. Thanks for posting!:)

Very good! As previous poster, I used a box of velveeta mac and cheese dinner. I also used the chunks of pineapple. The pineapple was not very noticeable, until you bite into a piece which was a nice tasty suprise.

I'm definitely glad that I tried this. I made this just as written. Nobody in my family knew there was pineapple. Since there is only 8 oz of crushed pineapple, you can't see it and you really can't detect the taste other than a slight sweetness. I didn't have Cheez Whiz, so I used Velveeta and some milk. Overall, this is very good, but just needs a little "something" that I cannot put my finger on. Maybe double the crushed pineapple? Maybe some other ingredient(s)? I just don't know, but thanx for sharing this, because I'll have some fun experimenting with it!

Good! I used velvetta cheese. I took some out before adding the chopped ham and cooked both batches in separate saucepans.Some of the kids said it was like the pizza too except macaroni for the crust!

Very good! I used a large box of macaroni & cheese (the type with soft, not powdered, cheese sauce) instead of the macaroni plus Cheez Whiz. I'd recommend using pineapple bits instead of the crushed pineapple; it disappears in the cheese sauce and you can't see it! You can taste it though. Yum!
