Chuck Wagon Mac Recipe

If you like, you can vary this dish by using a macaroni and cheese mix with wheel- or shell-shaped pasta instead of the usual "elbows". Or try white cheddar or Mexican-style macaroni and cheese mixes.—Novella Cook, Hinton, West Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 package (7-1/4 ounces) macaroni and cheese dinner mix

"I omitted the celery because I don't like cooked celery and I added a little bit of sugar to offset the tartness of the tomato sauce. My teen liked it and had seconds. It was good."
