Reviews for Deluxe Macaroni Dinner
"Stars won't register - but consider this a 5-star meal. Quick and easy and flavorful. Used frozen broccoli instead of fresh. Easy ingredients for a last minute meal and my picky husband actually liked it! :-) Worth keeping a box of Deluxe on hand (and I used regular not four-cheese and it was still really good)."
"Better than box version of this meal at the grocery store. Quick and easy my family loves it!"
