Ok, if there is one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I could literally eat macaroni and cheese 3 times/day…  7 days a week.  Oh, every single day.. forever.

And..  I LOVE the boxed kind and I love Hamburger Helper.  All the macaroni, homemade, baked, boiled, slow cooked, boxed, frozen.. every single one of them I love.

Well, this is in my top two.  Yes, I just said that!  It’s in my TOP 2 (along with my Ultra Creamy Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese)!!  That means wow, it’s super awesome!  To me, it’s a super close match to the boxed Hamburger Helper but you know each and every ingredient in this recipe!

The best part, it’s 20 minutes start to finish!
