Cheesy Beef & Macaroni sounds delicious just from the name alone: filled with juicy bites of ground beef, tender macaroni, and sharp cheddar cheese. But Cheesy Beef & Macaroni has a few surprises in its creamy, rich center. These include bright and sweet tomato sauce and extra savory chicken soup. You'll be surprised by just how deep the flavors of this casserole go, and how excited you’ll be to eat more of it.
