Baked Monterey Jack Macaroni

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Audrey M

I love this macaroni bake because of the cheese and how creamy it turns out.

I omitted the onions and used chopped roasted peppers instead of the fresh sweet red pepper. I sprinkled the top very lightly with the chili powder, as I didn't want it to be too overwhelming for my son. My only regret is that I didn't double it. Thanks for the posting!
