Heat water to boil in a medium pot. In a small skillet, brown ground beef and onions, breaking up meat as it cooks, until most of the pink color is gone. Drain grease, if any, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and keep warm.
Heat butter and milk together in microwave until hot; set aside to use for cheese sauce. Remove cheese packet from pasta box; set aside.
Pour Mac & Cheese pasta into boiling water and cook for 8 to 9 minutes, just until al dente; pasta will cook more in sauce. Let pasta drain in colander while you make cheese sauce.
Pour hot milk into pasta pot set over medium-low heat. Add contents of cheese packet to milk and mix well; cook for a minute or two, until sauce starts to thicken. Add drained pasta and mix well. Stir the cooked meat into pasta. Serve immediately.
