This is also my favorite baked mac and cheese recipe. I got it off the Creamettes box maybe 20 years ago. I use more cheese though, and I only use Extra Sharp Cheddar - the Kraft Cracker Barrel red label. I do one more thing which was the result of a daydreaming error - I thought I was boiling water to cook collard greens. I put a whole peeled onion in the water while its coming to a boil for the pasta. It's my secret ingredient that gives a nice little kick. I take the onion out before I put in the pasta. MANY people have asked for my mac and cheese recipe.

My sister and I tried this recently while on a visit to our elderly father. We topped the casserole with some all-beef franks my father had in the fridge and popped the whole thing in the oven. The mac and cheese is very good, and very satisfying on a cold day. Good comfort food and very easy to make.

i am so thankful I finally found this recipe. I have been looking for along time but it's hard to find Creamette Brand Pasta. This how my Mom always made it. Thank you very much for posting!
