Is it still mac and cheese if...

...you add other stuff to it? Silly question, I know. But of such things are snowy Sundays made.

I made mac and cheese last night, but I wanted more of a one dish meal, so I sauteed some onions, ham and broccoli and tossed that in with my mac. Used the same amount of cheese sauce and pasta as usual.

So is it mac and cheese? Or does it start to nudge into casserole territory?

BTW, I've been using sodium citrate for my mac and cheese lately, and this time I used beer for the liquid instead of milk or cream. Kind of awesome and still gloriously creamy without the fuss of making a bechamel or custard.
