Betty Crocker Mac and Cheese

Last week, I got a surprise at my door

We're a big mac and cheese family, so I couldn't wait to try it out. Tonight for dinner, we were having bbq pork, so it seemed like a great time to check out the new mac and cheese. 

I let the youngest (8 years old) make it. The instructions were pretty easy so no problems there! (Don't mind my messy kitchen )

Note: When the box says to stir frequently, they aren't kidding! We had some pasta stick to the bottom of the pan, but we made a full recovery! 

I wasn't too sure about this stuff because you don't drain the pasta. I'm usually not a fan of that because sometimes you end up with a weird texture. It looked good, so I gave it a try. 

The verdict? The kid really liked it. She gave it a big thumbs up. The husband liked it. He said it was really cheesy. I thought it was ok. It would lend itself well to add-ins like bacon or broccoli. It was really cheesy and the pasta had some substance, which I like. I will probably make it again, adding some broccoli next time. We tried the regular mac and cheese this time, and we're looking forward to trying the other varieties.
