Or for a fraction of the cost of all those boxes, just buy a package of macaroni, still adding all the extra ingredients. The cheese packet is quite unnecessary and has a lot of sodium. Just add your own cheese and salt to taste
You might want to try cubed ham. I use it sometimes in my homemade mac and cheese. What I like best is to put a layer of shredded cheese on top and put the dish under the broiler long enough to lightly toast the cheese. A little chewy and the toasting brings out more cheese flavor.
