--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/2  tsp           olive oil
   1      pound         skinless boneless chicken breast -- ground
     1/2  cup           onions -- chopped
  15      ounces        tomato sauce
     1/2  cup           nonfat Parmesan cheese
     1/2  teaspoon      basil
  14      ounces        macaroni and cheese dinner
   1      tbsp          reduced fat margarine -- melted
   2      tbsps         unbleached flour
   1 1/2  cup           skim milk
   2      whole         egg whites -- slightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray;
set aside. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and onions.
Cook until chicken is no longer pink and onions are tender. Stir in tomato
sauce, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and basil. Simmer 10 minutes. Prepare
macaroni and cheese dinner according to package directions (I use skim milk
and fat-free spread). Spread chicken mixture onto bottom of prepared pan.
Top with macaroni dinner. Meanwhile melt margarine in saucepan on low heat.
Blend in flour. Gradually add milk; cook, stirring constantly, on low heat
until thickened. Stir small amount of hot mixture into egg whites; return
to hot mixture. Pour over dinner; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 50 minutes or until golden brown.
