    This is a great recipe! I have a shortcut though ! If you have leftover macaroni & cheese( I use boxed M&C),add some cooked,seasoned ground beef and tomato sauce.Mix together well.Serve with a vegetable and bread of your choice.Enjoy!

    I have a recipe called hamburger helper
    1 pound hamburger
    1 cup hot water
    2 cups milk
    1 1/2 cup elbow macaroni
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    sauce packet
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    2 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon sugar
    Brown meat, drain, add hot water, milk, pasta & sauce packet..boil, cover, reduce heat. Simmer for 12 minutes or till tender.
    Last few minutes of cook time add cheese, stir and re-cover.
    Let set for 5 minutes uncovered….then eat.

        I’m not sure what you mean as a sauce packet Wendy because neither recipe calls for a sauce packet unless you are talking about the tomato sauce and that comes in a can and usually is where you find the jars of spaghetti sauce.

          Karen’s recipe for hamburger helper has sauce packet listed in both the ingredients and the directions. Maybe the elbow macaroni and sauce packet were from a box of mac & cheese? Both of these recipes sound good.

    On the 6 cups of cooked macaroni. Is that 6 cups before you cook it or after? BC 6 cups of uncooked macaroni then cooked would be a lot of mac.
