Easy Shaked-Up Macaroni and Cheese

Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

If you are not a garlic-lover then you may omit, I like to add in a pinch or so of cayenne pepper also, for best flavor use a sharp cheddar cheese for this such as Kraft Cracker Barrel Sharp Cheddar Cheese and for a main meal add in 2 cups chopped cooked ham or cooked chicken.

I really enjoyed this recipe I used fresh minced garlic and sauteed some onions instead of using powder .The mac n' cheese turned out very tasty and delicious. I also used twists instead of elbows and it made a nice side dish. Thanks for sharing.
