This is my sister-in-law's mac and cheese recipe. This is one of her "signature" dishes that she has at family gatherings.

I made the recipe for one cup macaroni. I added some sirachi sauce to the sauce, and then a tomato diced in the layers. Worked out very well, I did stir once while baking so I would have a few more crispy brown bits. Will make this again.
