Army & Lou's Soul Food Macaroni and Cheese

Recipe by LAURIE

I have had this mac and cheese and it truly is awesomely rich and creamy! I had totally forgotten how good it was until I opened the June 2006 issue of Midwest Living and there it was. No more trips to Chicago to get it, here is the recipe!

I had tried every recipe from Paula Deen to Alton Brown...this one has the best creamy taste with a little of the casserole texture! LOVE LOVE It!
