    CarrolJ's Note:

    I created this Macaroni & Cheese in the summer of 2003 when our daughter and her eight children were living with us for four months. I needed something which was filling and not too expensive. I divided the recipe to make this smaller version for DH, DS and I after DD and family moved. NOTE***Don't leave off the delicious buttered helps keep the cassorole moist and also helps keep the cheese from making a crust on the top. It is a great addition to an old fashion style baked Mac and Cheese casserole.

      Made this as is, just cut the recipe in half. Was quick and easy to put together and throw in the oven. Was creamy and so good! Once again though 4yr old DS didn't like it...if it doesn't come from a blue box, he doesn't like it! :) but 1 yr old, DH and myself ate it up!! Made for Spring PAC 2010.

      I tried this last night everyone but my 8 year old liked it. He thought it was spicey from the pepper. He's my picky eater. It was very good and I had it leftover for lunch today and added a little milk and a tablespoon of butter and microwaved it and it was still creamy. Thanks for the recipe.
