Western Macaroni and Cheese Dinner

Western Macaroni and Cheese Dinner created by wicked cook 46

Can't remember if I got this off the Mac 'N Cheese box or where. It's a great way to change up plain old mac 'N cheese. Comfort food! If you have leftover fresh broccoli stems, chop them up and drop them in the boiling water with the noodles. I adjusted the recipe a bit.

    I had this recipe from the box of mac&cheese that I saved from years ago...Yet I lost it and just Googled it and it popped-up!! My kids loved this dish for many years!!! I would add crushed Ritz Crackers and Shredded Cheese to the topping in the Casserole Dish. Perfect with a Garden Salad or Green Beans----Of course I did omit the Corn bc kids didn't want it---But it was a good meal for everyone!!!

    Thank you WI Cheesehead, this was exactly the recipe I was looking for. And, yes, it did originally come as a recipe on the side of a box of mac 'n cheese which is probably why I lost the little thing in the first place.<br/>I like to make it with a regular 16 oz box of macaroni and just double the cheese. But that's me.

    My family enjoyed this .I was only so so on it. It sure makes a box of mac n cheese go a long way. I used ground beef, red peppers and ketchup ( was out of tomato paste)also used mozza and cheddar cheese. I did taste testing before putting in a casserole and found it bland so added about 1/4 cup of salsa verde and a very big dash of chilpolte chili powder. It needs extra seasoning but as is would be good for kids who don't like spices etc. Next time I think I will add some cubed cheese to the mix.I made this for the "My 3 chefs" fall 2008 contest
