    Sierra Silver's Note:

    It looks like something from Christmas, tastes like something from summer, and makes you feel like you're over at grandma's. This is a nice, healthy, flavorful macaroni. Feel free to add a bit of shredded chicken if you feel like it.

      To start, I followed the step by step to the tee, guessed at the temp. at 375 and put it all into a 9x13 pan. Too much for the pan and had to take alot out, 2 cups of bread crumbs? you obviously guessed at that amount because that was way too much, and in the end, it tasted like @&$%.
