Recipe Comments & Reviews

I needed a quick supper and tried this tonight. Very good! I added a can of diced tomatoes. My husband loved it!
The Cheeseburger Mac turned out very good. My husband was impressed. It looked similar to the the occasional Hamburger Helper served here, so I did have to point out that it was an actual recipe. I had been craving a cheeseburger and macaroni & cheese and this covered them both. I wasn't sure what kind of chopped pickles to use, so I used some sweet and some dill; it was perfect. It was almost as easy as Hamburger Helper but had a much more unique taste.
