I prepare it differently. I put it in a thermos with boiling water (same amount as directions) stir very well and let it sit in he heat for 5-10 minutes (or 2-3 hours if I'm bringing it to work) then pour it back into a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. I either add a laughing cow cheese (makes ALL the difference) and salt and pepper...or I add 2oz lean turkey, or tuna. you can also mix it with the chili to make a chili mac and split in half for two meals. Sometimes I mix the turkey with the chili and mac (got that from chubbychef!)
Also, make sure you let it sit for a few minutes to thicken!
I hated it at first too. It took a lot for me to try it again, but now I love it! I very rarely eat it without doctoring it up with at least laughing cow, though.
