When we realize we are running out of evenings to finish our holiday shopping, wrapping or cooking, we often turn to a quick dinner to save time. Frozen macaroni and cheese is a family comfort food that's easy to prepare and satisfying for a hungry brood. This week we found 10 different varieties of frozen macaroni and cheese at local grocery stores. All were baked in the oven except when the directions recommended microwave cooking. Our judges were quick to stash a few in their freezers for busy nights. One brand will even help us stay on our holiday fitness plans.
