This money-saving casserole is one that is also called a comfort food. For a complete meal, serve with a tossed green salad with your favorite dressing.


  • 1 pkg. (7-1/4 oz.) macaroni and cheese dinner
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 (14-1/2 oz.) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves or dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (your choice of mild, med, or sharp)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare the boxed dinner in a large saucepan as directed on package, omitting the butter. Meanwhile, brown meat in large skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Add tomatoes and oregano; mix well. Bring to a boil. Add meat mixture to the macaroni and cheese; spoon into a 9-inch square baking dish or pan. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and the casserole is heated through.
