Down Home Macaroni & Cheese by Kraft

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by andrealeev

After making this my husband won't eat anything else. I changed to fat free milk Kraft reduced fat Shredded Cheddar and Velveeta light. Great to make when you have to bring a dish, and the leftovers are even better especially when mixed with cooked ground beef or tuna.

I love this recipe! One of my friends is so hard to please when it comes to Mac and Cheese and now he won't eat anything else! I used Ritz cracker crumbs (10 crackers?) mixed with 2T butter for topping (instead of bread crumbs). I used the broiler to lightly brown the top of the casserole. Thanks for posting!
