      This is a delicious recipe for mac and cheese. It's a great way to get a really creamy texture without having to used processed cheese food.

      my husband said this is THE best homemade mac and cheese he's ever eaten. I followed directions exactly, except I only had HALF a box of elbow noodles, but I used exactly the same amounts for everything else and just put it in an 8x8 dish. Breadcrumbs are a definite! YUM!

      I LOVE THIS RECIPE. It is my go too. I made this for a 40th birthday party and added garlic powder, caramelized onions & peas since it was mainly adults. I was surprised that everyone made such a fuss over macaroni & cheese. Then I tasted it. REAL GOOD. Thank you.
