"So simple my 7yo made it (with just a little help!) and the whole family loved it! I added just a splash of milk when mixing up the macaroni."

"Very good. I used two boxes of macaroni (Annie's organic) and ground turkey in place of hamburger. My boys loved it."

"I ran across this recipe while looking for something different to cook and use some of the pepperoni I had sitting in the fridge before it went bad. I was skeptical with how the pasta and pizza combination would be but also intrigued so I thought what the heck I'll try it. I followed the recipe to a T except for adding a half a box more of the Mac n cheese dinner. I've got to say that both I and my husband were amazed at how good this dish really was. The flavors melded perfectly. My only complaint was that I felt the mac n cheese was just a tad bit on the dry side but not a lot. I think next time I'll just go ahead and use both boxes of mac n cheese and add just a little bit of milk to make it easier to mix the dry powder in the noodles. I will be making this recipe again. Thanks for a great recipe!"

"I have made this recipe several times and my family loves it. The only changes I make is that I use 2 boxes of macaroni and cheese and I prepare the macaroni and cheese as it directs on the package."

"When I first came across this recipe I was thinking pizza sauce and pepperoni on macaroni and cheese? Figuring I'd give it a shot anyway I was NOT disappointed. My son didn't think he would like it either but he smiled wide and said this is "my third favorite now." Will definitely make this again!"
