Mac & Cheese Lasagna

So we have established I am anti-cardboard food, right?!  No boxed meals!  WELLLLLL, the other day I was running SUPER DUPER late. I had been gone all day long and needed to feed my starving family, and quick! 

  Here is what I made after finding a recipe that used BOXED Mac & Cheese, which I just happened to have 2 of…{GASP!}

No judgments, desperate times call for desperate measures!!!!

Mac & Cheese Lasagna

  • 2 boxes (7.25 Oz. Box) Kraft Mac & Cheese
  • Additional Required Ingredients Specified In The Mac & Cheese Package (typically Milk And Butter Or Margarine)
  • 1 pound Hamburger, Seasoned To Taste
  • 1 jar (24 Oz. Jar) Spaghetti Sauce
  • 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
  • Parmesan Cheese, To Sprinkle On Top

Heat oven to 350ºF. Prepare boxed macaroni according to package instructions (you’ll typically need milk and butter or margarine as directed in the package). Brown/drain hamburger. Spoon half the macaroni into a lightly greased 9×13 glass dish. Top with layers of half of each: sauce, meat and shredded cheese. Repeat layers, then sprinkle with parmesan.

Bake 20 minutes.

Serve with some fresh broccoli, steamed, a HUGE green salad, or something equally healthy to make yourself feel better about serving your kids boxed Mac & Cheese. This is delish, I bet even your hubby will like it!

  1. Hey, don’t feel guilty–sometimes you have to break your own rules to remain sane! And some crazy days really require an easy dinner. There’s no judgment coming from here, my friend!

    • No judgments here! Just hoping to help people find healthier alternatives with easy casseroles and meals on here that DON’T involve boxed things, but alas, sometimes you gotta do it! :)They say the less cans and carboard boxes in your cart, the heathier the choices they are. Makes sense!

I adore hearing from you, comment away! :)
