Cheeseburger Macaroni

This is just a good, "taste like mom's" kinda meal. It warms your heart and soul and makes the family happy. It's a quick and easy meal. Try to find some time with your family during this busy holiday season to sit down and eat dinner together.

1 lb lean ground beef
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes (optional)
3 1/4 cups water
3/4 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
12 ounces macaroni
1 lb Velveeta reduced fat cheese product, cubed
chopped tomatoes, if preferred

Brown hamburger and onion, drain well. Whisk together water, ketchup, and mustard in a bowl. Pour over meat and bring to a boil. Add macaroni and turn heat to medium low. Cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until macaroni is cooked and almost all of the liquid is absorbed. Stir in cubed Velveeta cheese until melted and distributed evenly. Top with tomatoes and serve.
