Homemade but not from scratch

Making dinner for the family doesn't mean you have to start from scratch or spend hours in the kitchen. A delicious dinner can be just as easily whipped up with some Kraft macaroni & cheese and your favorite jar of spaghetti sauce.

Homemade but not from scratch

There's nothing better on a chilly evening than lasagna, hot and bubbling right out of the oven. But rather than spending hours making the tomato sauce, boiling the lasagna and then layering everything together; why not grab a couple "pre-made" items at the grocery store and whip up a dinner that tastes just as delicious but takes half the time? Kraft's macaroni & cheese makes it just that easy.


Easy Cheesy Cheddar Lasagna


  • 1 package Kraft Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese


    1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
    2. Prepare the macaroni & cheese as described on the package.
    3. Brown the ground beef in a pan over medium heat. Drain the grease and stir in the spaghetti sauce.
    4. Layer half the meat mixture with half the macaroni & cheese dinner in a 2 qt casserole dish. Repeat the layers.
    5. Sprinkle the top with the mozzarella cheese.
    6. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes and serve.
