Recipe by gourmet_girl

Cheesy, yummy, rich and creamy, gourmet style mac and cheese. :)

This tastes wonderful. I do think when I make it again I'll use a sharper cheese to give it more of a zing or even use a few kinds just like gourmet_girl says she does. Still - it turned out beautifully and it was yummy. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2008.
