Peppy Macaroni

"I like to keep an extra box of macaroni and cheese on the pantry shelf to make this fun pizza-flavored casserole for unexpected guests," relates Helen Cluts of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Because it's a snap to prepare, older kids could assemble it to give Mom and Dad a bread from dinner duties.
