Today as I make my baked mac and cheese I found this on the back of my R&F elbow pasta. It looks very yummy.

Thanks for this recipe. I enjoyed making it. I added green onions to it for added flavor, and topped with bacon slices before baking. Although I prefer mac & cheese made with a bechemel sauce, using eggs made a lighter and fluffier texture. Thanks for sharing kittycara.

Very good even though I skiped the bacon. We also used basil instead of Italian Seasoning. Thanks for sharing!
