Del Monte Mac and Cheese Recipe

July July... Rainy season again. Grrr! I hate it when it rains coz I get lazy to go out and work out. I know it's not a good excuse not to work out because you can always do exercises at home. Whenever it rains, I gain weight. Why? Coz I spoil myself with comfort foods like nachos, blueberry cheesecake, burger, fries, pizza and milk tea... Now who's with me? Nom nom nom...

Few months ago, I went grocery shopping and found Del Monte Cheese Magic in dairy section when I was looking for cream cheese. I examined the packaging and found several recipes at the back. Meaty mac and cheese, cheese sticks, nachos recipes etc. I'm like, "Oh wow! This dish is easy!" So I grabbed 2 packs and bought the ingredients listed below:

Easy Meaty Mac and Cheese Recipe from Del Monte

140 g(1cup) Del Monte Elbow Macaroni
5 cups water
1 pack (200g) Del Monte cheese Magic
1/4 cup butter
1/4 fresh milk

1/4 cup ground beef
grated cheese (optional)

Makes 3-4 servings

Stir fry ground beef in butter

Boil water, add macaroni. Cook for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain, do not rinse.
Transfer macaroni in the same pan. While still hot, add butter, milk, Del Monte Cheese Magic and stir-fried ground beef.
Cover over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally

Add grated cheese if you like (just like first photo) and serve. ;-)

To my dear friend Mitch: Remember when we were in Kenny Roger's? You were like, "I wonder how they made this(mac & cheese)..." Told you it's easy! Enjoy it with Koby! <3
