Keep a package of elbow noodles (or pasta shells if you typically buy shells and cheese) handy and when you make boxed mac & cheese, you can add a half a cup of noodles to the noodles from the box. Then just prepare with the cheese sauce as normal. You get more macaroni and it’s just as cheesy as using the noodles in the box alone! This could prevent you from having to make two boxes to have plenty and then throwing some out or help you have extra when you have a guest or two for dinner!
