Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 10 mins
Yield 8 servings


  • 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.

    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!
