"I came up with this recipe after craving both cheeseburgers and mac & cheese. This really tastes like McDonald's cheeseburgers! Don't leave out the garnishes, ketchup or mustard though- the ingredients sounds weird, but taste great together."

Step 1

Brown the ground beef in a sprayed pan over medium-high heat. When meat is no longer pink, drain and then add salt, pepper, garlic powder & Worcestershire sauce. Cook for 2-3 more minutes, or until beef is cooked to your liking. I like making it kind of crispy, so I cook longer. Set aside and keep warm.

Step 2

In a large saucepan, cook your pasta according to package directions. Al dente is best as you don't want the mac & cheese mushy. Once pasta is done, drain but do not rinse.

Step 3

Return the warm pasta to the saucepan, and immediately add the butter, yogurt, and cheese. Stir until everything is well-melted, then fold in the reserved ground beef.

Step 4

Put pasta in bowls, and top with sesame seeds, green onions, tomatoes, and pickles. Drizzle with generous amount of ketchup & yellow mustard.
