Mac and Cheese Lasagna

I haven't been cooking a whole lot lately, and almost nothing new, but the other day I needed a quick fix for dinner and I had everything in my fridge for this Kraft recipe. I was afraid it would turn out gross, (strange combination of ingredients) but it turned out amazing! This is an fast, easy recipe that lasagna lovers will approve of. (Modification- I did not use the light recipe on the kraft mac and cheese dinner because I forgot. It turned out very rich, cheesy and delicious. Calorie conscious families may opt for low fat moz cheese and the light recipe.)

Kraft Kitchens Tips - Substitute 1 cup chopped leftover cooked chicken for the browned ground beef. Or omit it for a meatless version.
