Wow was this good! My 4 yr old and I scarfed this down for lunch today. I also just stirred the salsa and cheese into the mac on stovetop and it was just as yummy!

Excellent and quick lunch. The salsa added a nice zesty flavor. I didn't bake in the oven, just added the salsa to the cooked macaroni and heated through. It worked well. Thanks
