Interesting dish, cheap, quick and easy is right! Daughter gave it thumbs down, but she typically does to anything.

Quick and simple to make. I made a few additions to give it some more flavor. I added extra onions and some chopped red bell pepper. I also stirred some shredded cheddar in the casserole as well as sprinkled some on top. Thanx for sharing this. I love to find new things to do with those mac & cheese mixes!
