    Queen of Harts's Note:

    This recipe is from Rachael Ray's 365 No Repeats cookbook. I adapted it a teeny-tiny bit. I also like to cook up a hot dog, cut it up and put it in my bowl of mac and cheese!

      Wow this was AMAZING! One of my favorites of 2012 for sure. I loved the adult, more hearty and flavorful taste this had. If you had kids this would also be a surefire way to get some veggies in them. So good, I'm already dreaming about the leftovers for lunch. Many mac and cheese recipes I've tried dry out but this one was swimming in sauce. I even had an extra 1/2 cup or so left over. I ended up using fresh butternut squash by cooking it quickly in the microwave then pureeing it. I also poured the finished product into a pan, sprinkled more Parmesan and chili flakes on top then broiled it for 8 minutes to give it the browned top I love. Thanks Queen of Harts!

      Yup! Made yet another mac & cheese dish primarily for a neighbor couple though I kept two small servings here for the 2 of us for personal taste testing! I did ask them about the hot dogs since the couple had 2 small grandkids for the day, but they opted out of that! Still, I followed the recipe on down, & was pleasantly surprised at how nice this tasted! The neighbors, not surprisingly, loved it as well! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
