This is just plain comfort food, and also a really great recipe for mac and cheese. This can also be made with rotini pasta or small shell pasta. I have even added brocolli florets and cubed cooked chicken breast to the mixture just to "kick it up a notch".

Very good! We gobbled it up! I used capanelle in place of the macaroni, and since I usually don't have Ritz crackers in the house, I just sprinkled the top with grated Parmesan cheese. Had this along side some grilled boneless chicken breasts, and it made a great Sunday meal. Thanks!
