Some top their mac and cheese with it...
Perhaps with this powerhouse merger that will form the fifth-largest food company in the world, we will soon see delightful blue boxes of Kraft ketchup-y macaroni and cheese on grocery store shelves. One can only hope.
In the meantime, while we wait for the convenience of premade boxes, there are plenty of pasta-ketchup mashups out there to satisfy your craving.
No recipe needed here. Just take your standard boxed mac and cheese, and drizzle with plenty of ketchup. If you're feeling fancy, add some ground beef and peas. Spider-Man paper plate optional.
