Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 10 mins
Yield 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 pkg. (14 oz.) KRAFT Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Made With 2% Milk Cheese
  • 3 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon margarine

How to Make It

  1. Bring water and milk just to boil in saucepan on medium heat. Add Macaroni; reduce heat to low. Simmer 6 min. or until Macaroni is tender.

    Add vegetables; cover. Cook 3 min. until liquid is almost absorbed and vegetables are heated through.

    Stir in Cheese Sauce and margarine until well blended.

    Substitute:
    Fresh vegetables can be substituted for the frozen. Make sure to cut the harder vegetables into smaller pieces to ensure even cooking.

    Nutrition Bonus: Pair this with your favorite entree for a creamy, delicious side dish that provides vitamin C from the mixed vegetables and calcium from the KRAFT Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Made with 2% Milk Cheese. As a bonus, the mixed vegetables are also an excellent source of vitamin A!
