I've grown to accept macaroni and cheese has alot of variety, and I like mine in various ways. Here is a basic recipe for it not using the velveeta so many others do. I also never understood the addition of eggs to mac & cheese. You won't find any of those in here also. Very simple and good if you just want a recipe to base your creation on.

This is a great version of mac and cheese. I had to use all yellow cheddar because I don't buy white. The addition of dijon was interesting. I didn't taste mustard but there was something there that added a different flavor( it's hard to explain). Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.

Made for Spring PAC 2014 and I did cut the recipe in half but otherwise followed it completely. Next time I might add some onion/garlic powder and a little hot sauce/cayenne for some zing but this was a hit and I will be making this again. Thank you for posting.
