This was really good. I used bowtie pasta( I thought I had elbow, but didn't) which worked out just fine. Also, I was in a hurry and baked it at 375 for 25 minutes. It came out vrey creamy and the extra-sharp cheese made this extra special. Made for PAC Fall 08.

I have made my homemade Mac & Cheese this same way for a long time. I find it best when I sprinkle buttered bread crumbs over the top. I also add cubed ham in with it. Very delicious!
