Recipe by mommyoffour

I have been eating this comfort food for years. My mom has been serving this casserole to us for as long as I can remember, and doesn't change from this recipe very often. I know there are alot of fancier mac and cheese recipes here but this is your basic recipe......comfort food. I hope you enjoy.

I love basic and this definitely fits the bill! I had made a huge recipe of mac & cheese tonight and then thought I need to make something for my family too so searched for a basic mac & cheese and there was your recipe. Perfect because all the ingredients are always on hand and simple to follow the instructions. We thoroughly enjoyed this dish! Searched & found for the Bargain Basement tag game.
