This Cheeseburger Macaroni and Cheese is very similar to the traditional Hamburger helper type meal.

The kids will definitely be all over it!


  • It is pretty easy I tell ya, all your doing is boiling up a pot of water and cooking your pasta till al dente.
  • However prior to it being cooked fully, you will want to toss in your broccoli florets.
  • Allowing it to steam/boil on the top for 2 minutes, before stirring it all in and allowing it to cook for one more minute to fully tenderize the broccoli.
  • Then you will strain the pasta and the broccoli and set both aside. 
  • Next is the hamburger, fry it up alongside the whole canned tomatoes till cooked and browned.
  • Then add in all the spices.
  • Mix in the cheese and allow it to melt, before adding back in the pasta along with the cooked broccoli.
  • Give it all a nice toss and serve!

EASY Peasy! Right?
