Cheeseburger Mac

This is one of those ultra simple comfort foods.
It's made from ingredients most people already have in their homes, great for a weeknight.

When there is a good sale on ground beef, I stock up. I will brown some of it and freeze, it's ready for a dish just like this!

Cheeseburger Mac
1 Lb Ground beef
¾ Cup Milk
1/3 Cup Ketchup
1 package of shells and cheese dinner mix
1 ¼ Cup Water
1 Medium tomato (Diced)
¼ Cup green onion
1. Brown meat in large skillet, drain
2. Add water , milk, and ketchup
3. Stir in uncooked macaroni, return to a boil
4. Reduce heat to medium low and cover pan
5. Simmer 10 minutes or until macaroni is tender
6. Add cheese sauce, tomato, and green onion.
7. Stir until well blended

Ingredients: Minus the tomato. It's been incredibly cold here and I was not running to the store!

Creamy and delicious! Still good without the tomato, though I will admit to missing it.

Come party with me HERE!
