Cut the recipe in half and added a 1 small clove of garlic minced and a dash of cayanne pepper. Will be making this again. It is really a very easy and creamy comfort food meal. Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup game 2009.

I made this recipe on 4/19/09 as part of mine and SO's dinner. And I followed the recipe as written, except for cutting it in half.For the pasta, a mix of penne and elbow was used.This mac and cheese was comfort food at it's finest, creamy and soul satisfying. What more can you ask from a mac and cheese ? This " WILL" be made again. Thank you so much for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

Mac and cheese is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. I love mac and cheese made with Velveeta, but have never used all Velveeta cheese. I normally make this with both Velveeta and cheddar cheese. I halved this recipe and baked it in an 8 x 8 pan. I also used shells instead of the macaroni. Yum! Thanks for another great recipe, Vicki.
