Baked Pizza Mac

This recipe came from this year's Dickinson County Historical Society's cookbook that my students organized and designed. The cook that contributed this recipe was Joanna Berry. Served with mixed vegetables.

1 can 14 oz pizza sauce, divided.
1 pkg. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese - prepared as directed on box
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and divided
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (I used minced garlic)
1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese - I put more on it.

Preheat oven 400 degrees.

Remove and set aside 1/4 cup of the pizza sauce for later use. Combine the prepared mac and cheese, two thirds of the meat, the remaining pizza sauce, egg, and seasonings. Spoon evenly into a 9 x 9 dish. Top with the remaining meat and reserved 1/4 cup pizza sauce (combine sauce and meat); sprinkle with cheese.

Bake 15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

We served this with Birds Eye Steamfresh mixed vegetables. Tasted great with the pizza dish.

I think this recipe would be great with onions and diced tomatoes. If you have picky eaters, this dish is a great one to have.
