1 1/2 cups water
1 cup milk
1 tsp. salt
1 - 14oz. box Kraft Deluxe macaroni and cheese dinner
3 cups frozen (thawed) or fresh mixed vegetables (whatever you like)
1 TBSP butter
In a saucepan over medium heat add milk, salt and water--stir and bring to a boil. Add the dry macaroni to the boiling water and reduce heat to low. Cook and stir until macaroni is cooked to your taste. Add the fresh or thawed vegetables to the macaroni--cook and stir until vegetables are hot and liquid is almost gone. Move saucepan to an unheated burner--add the cheese sauce and the butter to the macaroni mixture--stir well. Let stand for 2 minutes before serving to give the sauce time to thicken.
