“Macaroni & Cheese Lasagna” from a Billet Mom

Posted on 1 0

Another recipe from a co-worker who had my best interests in mind and knew I was always looking for new dishes to try.   She brought it to me and said ” here is a recipe that tastes great and will help you out with your meals.”  She added “it would be a great dish to make for a pregame meal or just a meal.”  She was so right and I am so glad she gave it to me.

 I love Macaroni and Cheese but this dish makes it special.  By adding ingredients to plain Macaroni and Cheese it almost becomes very much like lasagna.   As a Billet Mom I did make this for a meal for my Billet Son’s, most found it a little heavy for a pregame meal.   I usually had to double the recipe. Served with a caesar salad and hot garlic bread this casserole is a sure winner.


A Billet Mom’s “Macaroni & Cheese Lasagna” Ingredients

2 packages Kraft® Macaroni and Cheese, prepared

1 pound ground beef

1/2 medium onion, chopped fine

1 1/2 cups tomato sauce

A Billet Mom’s Notes and Tips

  • This is even better made with homemade macaroni and cheese.
  • I like cheddar cheese so for this casserole I used 1/2 cup of mozzarella and 1/2 cup of cheddar.
  • If you don’t have the Garlic Plus® and 4 pepper spice you can use a sprinkle of garlic powder, onion powder and pepper.
  • Mix the parmesan cheese with bread crumbs and sprinkle on the top.
  • Top with buttered bread crumbs by mixing 2 Tablespoons of melted butter with 3/4 cup bread crumbs.  Sprinkle over top of casserole.
