Easy, meaty mac-and-cheese starts with a bag of frozen veggies and cheese sauce.

Ingredients

3
cups water
1 1/2
cups uncooked elbow macaroni (6 oz)
1
bag (24 oz) frozen broccoli, carrots, cauliflower & cheese flavored sauce
18
frozen cooked Italian meatballs (about 9 oz), thawed
1
cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)

Steps

  • 1 In 4-quart Dutch oven, heat water to boiling. Add macaroni; return to boiling. Cook 5 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Do not drain.
  • 2 Stir in frozen vegetables with sauce chips and meatballs. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 11 to 13 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking, until sauce chips are melted. Stir in Cheddar cheese until melted.

If you prefer, a 24-ounce bag of Green Giant® frozen broccoli & three-cheese sauce can be used instead of the broccoli, carrots and cauliflower mixture.
