Let's Make It
Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Place Macaroni in prepared dish. Stir in boiling water; cover with foil.
Bake 15 min., stiriing after 7 min.
Stir in Cheese Sauce Mix, milk and butter. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and crushed crackers. Bake, uncovered, an additional 5 min. or until cheese is melted and crackers begin to brown.
Balance this entree with smart side dishes. For example, choose a mixed green salad and steamed vegetable.
For a triple cheese bake, substitute RITZ Cheese Crackers for RITZ Crackers.
Make it festive by cutting green pepper into triangle-shapes for "trees" and red pepper into short strips for "trunks."
