Great Value Macaroni & Cheese Original review

We got some of this within the last few weeks, from Walmart in the store (I didn't actually go myself and get it).

Anyway, it took about 7 minutes to cook, which is nice. It's one and a third cups of macaroni in the box, with a traditional-sized pack of cheese powder. The taste is great. Instead of traditional milk and butter, I like to add butter, low fat cream cheese (I used some from a tub of First Street cream cheese, but any cream cheese with at least some fat in it is probably okay), and extra salt (the salt brings out the cheese flavor more; the cream cheese flavor definitely, but probably the cheese powder, too); since I don't add milk, I leave a little water in instead of draining it all out. It's excellent that way.

Butter and evaporated milk also work instead of regular milk and butter (it just tastes a little richer), if you don't want to keep more perishable milk around.

I just tried some with butter, evaporated milk, sea salt, and tomato powder in it. It's great. I made the tomato powder (dehydrated tomatoes and blended them up in the blender afterward).
