    Chef #1120064's Note:

    This is another take on macaroni and cheese. I like to use some cheddar for a little added classic macaroni and cheese flavor. I also put in different vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower or carrots) to vary the dish. A great comfort meal for cold days. I got this recipe from a cooking magazine from Byerley's.
