I'm Broke Mac and Cheese

I came up with this at my friend's house in an attempt to feed 6 kids with what he had in the cabinet. They loved it, and there was enough to feed the adults too. The meat that I used was wild pig, but I think that any would do.

    I made this for dinner last night and used tuna fish. I also added a can of sliced mushrooms. This was SOO good! I had accidentally bought fat free cream of broccoli cheese soup but you couldnt tell a difference. My 8 yr old LOVED this and wants me to make it again. Versatile, cheap and delicious. Couldnt ask for more. Thanks for sharing!
