When the macaroni is almost tender, I drain most of the water, and add cabbage and herbs such as escellion, garlic, and onions to the pot and let them cook. Afterward I add the cheese mix and combine to make a mouth-watering dish. mac & cheeseAt other times I may add mixed vegetables, real cheese – grated or cubed, milk, and meat (chicken or beef cubes) to my macaroni and cheese (from the box). Mac & cheese is also nice with tomatoes and tin tuna.
