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!

  Her parents asked me to photograph her 1st birthday party, a huge shin-dig with nearly 100 people! (so I was told, don’t have the official head count)

Then, the mean ol’ Rooster crowed and scared her silly!

Poor baby. (but what a CUTE cry face!)

We spent the better part of the next half hour trying to console the poor dear.  Thankfully we still got some shots.  You know those moments just make you sweat as a parent, but I kept reassuring them that this was totally the story of my life and not to worry!

Maggie Beth’s favorite part?  When her momma let her sit in the dirt pile.
