    LAURIE's Note:

    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!

      My husband and I are from Chicago, we know good food, and this is it! Easy to prepare, and the ingredients combine into delicious eating. We used bow tie pasta and it was very good. Give this one at try.

      Made this recipe for TG this season, after secretly suffering with own mac and cheese for years. But when I saw Army and Lou's name and remembered that out beloved Mayor Harold Washington spent countless hours dining at this Chicago area restaurant. I perused the recipe and found it to be similar to mother's recipes..that is, making a milk and and egg base poured over the macaroni and cheese. I added buttered, seasoned panko crumbs to the top, and voila, a tender, cheesy dish that I had been missing Forever. I tucked this away in my cookbook, and it will be a holiday say why only holiday? look a t the calorie count. I love it but don't think my system can take it more than 2-3 times per year. Fabulous!
