  • 1 pkg. (7-1/4 oz.) KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef

  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves or dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Prepare Dinner as directed on package, omitting butter. Meanwhile, brown meat in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Add tomatoes and oregano; mix well. Bring to boil.

  3. Bake 10 min. or until cheese is melted and casserole is heated through.

**Personal Review: I added a large chopped onion, 1 garlic clove, chopped, a little bit of soy sauce and a little bit of hot sauce to give it a kick.  This was super easy to make and it turned out fantastic!  I also switched the oven onto the broiler for a few minutes to let the cheese really turn golden brown.**
