Mac and Cheese Lasagna

by Laura

Today’s recipe is a twist on lasagna.  Instead of lasagna noodles and a ricotta cheese mixture we are using some good old mac and cheese.  You get saucy meat layered in between mac and cheesy goodness.  This is a great comfort dish as we will so be heading into Fall.

Mac and Cheese Lasagna

  • 2 (7.5 oz) pkgs. of Kraft Thick and Creamy Macaroni and Cheese
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups of spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese
  1. Prepare the macaroni and cheese according to the package directions. I prepare it using half the amount of butter and use fat free milk to reduce the fat.
  2. While the macaroni cooks, brown the beef in a skillet and drain.  Add the spaghetti sauce to the meat and stir to combine.
  3. In a 9x 13 or 11 x 7 dish, spread half of the meat mixture to cover the bottom of the pan.  Follow with a layer of half of the macaroni and cheese.  Repeat the layers with the remaining meat mixture and mac and cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the layers and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Great and easy recipe! I am a macaroni and cheese lover. If i’d be stranded in a island, that’s one of the foods that i’m going to bring with me to survive my days.

I make something similar to this all the time! I call it “Poor Man’s Lasagna”. We use shells n’ cheese, ground beef, spaghetti sauce, and a shredded cheese mixture. I brown the meat and cook the shells n cheese and then simmer everything together for a few minutes. I then put it in a baking dish and add the cheese to the top. I cook it at 425 until the cheese is melted in an oven. It’s so good!
