Basic Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Amber Matlock

This is a very basic macaroni and cheese that is good on it's own, or can be used as the base to many different spins.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Almost followed your recipe, but I did end up sprinkling the finished product with some nutty, whole grain bread crumbs, & then popped in in the oven to brown the top! Definitely worked for us, & we had a satisfyingly comforting meal! [Made & reviewed for the closing of Pick A Chef event]
