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) Green Giant™ frozen broccoli, carrots, cauliflower & cheese flavored sauce
18
frozen cooked Italian meatballs (about 9 oz), thawed
1

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.
