Add a few extra ingredients to boxed macaroni, and end up with something a million times tastier and more substantial. Quick and easy!

Total Time: 20 minutes?

Yield: Around 8-10 servings

Source: My Mom

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 boxes macaroni and cheese
  • 1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2- 15.25 cans (15.25 oz) corn, drained
  • 2 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Steps:

  1. Bring pan of water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook for about 7 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, including cheese packets.
  3. Stir over medium/high heat until butter is melted and ingredients are thoroughly combined. Enjoy!

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.
