Creamy Baked Macaroni

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by cxstitcher

Mac and Cheese has always been one of our comfort foods, and I found the recipe in Country Woman Magazine this month. I made it and found it to be wonderful!!! It was quickly eaten by the family, with no leftovers to be found. I did add an extra 1/4 cup of milk and stirred the mac and cheese once while in the oven about 15 minutes in, to help the melted cheese to be more evenly distributed.

I found this recipe in Taste of Home 2010 Award Winning Recipes. DELICIOUS! I added some feta cheese to the cheddar because I didn't have gouda, and I really enjoyed it. YUM! Thanks for posting this recipe!
