      This is my new go-to mac n' cheese! No more store-bought fake cheese packets for me anymore! I loved how easy this was to throw together. It was also quick to make. I didn't have the elbow pasta, so I used what I had on hand. Also, I ended up using about half a box of pasta, not the 1/2 cup listed. The sauce made a big pot! Thanks for posting!
