how do you fix up canned/pre-made food?

okay. i must admit something.
sometimes i eat spaghettios. GENERIC spaghettios. :o
i also eat ramen noodles and Kraft macaroni and cheese.
as always, they taste horrible.
i add stuff to them a lot though, and i swear you wouldn't have a clue it was the same product.
i add real cheese to my macaroni and cheese, sage and ginger or beef base to my oodles of noodles, and tomato sauce, herbs, salt, and things like that to my spaghettios.

how do you make not-so-yummy foods edible?

luvs and middie - please don't tell us that you also eat them straight from the can.................

Juliev - since you cook for one mostly, here's a way to jazz up a can of potato soup:

heat soup as usual, add sauteed onions, crumbled bacon and a little shredded you-know-what.

only when i'm stumbling drunk and can't think of how to turn the stove on...
but by that point i usually don't really taste the food i'm inhaling.

Try adding some canned tuna to the Kraft Mac & Cheese. It's really good. When I make Ramen noodles, I always add some of my own homemade stock to it.
