Macaroni and Cheese Lasagna

Who doesn’t love macaroni and cheese? And what if you turn that all time favorite into another all time favorite. Lasagna!
I bought these off brand boxes of macaroni and cheese and every time that I would make them I would hear that it didn’t taste the same as Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Which lead to me finding out ways of using up the boxes that I had left? Will I found this recipe on the Kraft web-site and decided to give it a try.
When I was preparing this dish I started thinking how about making Macaroni and Cheese Chili Bake or maybe a Macaroni and Cheese Taco Bake. I wonder how many boxes of this brand of Macaroni and Cheese I have left!
Well if you are wondering how it tasted it turned out pretty good. I wish I would have known about this dish when the girls were still living at home, I know that they would have asked me to make it all the time, I would just have to have made sure that I used Kraft and not the off brand back then too!
