Cheesiest Macaroni and Cheese

This is my personal recipe. I love Stouffer's mac and cheese and I decided to take a chance at making my own. This is pretty close and in a house of picky eaters, the first time I made it--it was gone in minutes. I have a rather large family, so you can halve the recipe to make for a smaller family. Also the larger recipe is good if you want to serve as a meal.

This was a decent macaroni & cheese, but it didn't approach the Stouffer's for richness of flavor. Maybe a sharper Cheddar would have bumped it up a notch? I made a half recipe & did the cream sauce portion in the microwave, otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

this made for a very comforting macaroni and cheese, I didn't have any mozzerella so I just used extra cheddar, I also added about 3 ounces of cream cheese when I added the shredded cheeses. It made it just a little more creamier. Thanks!
