“Shoestring chef! Create this delicious meal without busting your budget. I found this recipe in Woman's World. I made this for my families dinner. It was quick & easy. When I made this I used shelf stable milk with no problems. I added more cheese for the top. This was a bit bland for my family so next time I think I'll use a homemade sloppy joe mix and add some flavor to the mac & cheese.”
