OK, I can't find the recipe I was thinking of for you which used mac and cheese, a can of peas, tuna basically. You mixed it all up and (mac and cheese is cooked) and I think baked it for a short while, covered. I would add garlic, green peppers, pimento, and maybe celery. I'm a "well, what have I got I can throw in" kind of cook.
Here's one that I made so long ago I don't remember but I keep notes on recipes and it says "very good, easy, and different". Not sure how different as it doesn't look all that different. LOL. I was a "young thing" back then I guess. Hahaha!
Peppered Rice-a-Roni Hotdish
1 lb. pork sausage, browned and drained (you could use any ground meat)
1 green pepper, sliced
1 large onion, diced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 c. water
1 T. soy sauce
garlic and pepper to taste
1 box beef flavored rice-a-roni (you can find an off brand for less in this flavor)
Brown rice/vermicelli in 2 T. butter. Add 1 c. water, woy sauce, toms, peppers, onion, seasonings, and sausage. Bring to boil, lower heat, and cook until rice and peppers are cooked.
