    Dib's's Note:

    This recipe did not clump up on me, and man is it good, creamy and cheesy! You can thank the cooks at Cooks Country for the Original. Omit red pepper flakes if that's the one your looking for!

      I made this for DH who has been craving Mac n Cheese. I made almost exactly as directed except that I had to sub 1/3rd cream for some of the evaporated milk. Also American cheese is only available in Canada in the single slices wrapped in plastic so I peeled and shredded a few of those to make up the correct amount.
      This was a wonderful version of Mac N Cheese that I will turn to whenever he gets 'that craving' lol. I especially liked that you could not taste the evaporated milk as I am not a fan. The only change I would make next time is to reduce the pasta to sauce ratio to make it saucier. Solely for our taste as it is excellent as is.
