Better than Hamburger Helper, Member jackamojuju

Our 5 year old loved it and I thouht it tasted like a cheeseburger with catsup.Our 3 year old who usually cleans his plate didn't eat a bite and he loves mac n cheese,which is why i picked this one. I used cavatappi noodles and left out the onion. We doubled the recipe and it seemed like a lot of work.Over all it was better than Hamburger Helper,thats why i gave it a 3 out of 5.
