Grandmas Cheddar Cheese Spaghetti

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Andre

My Grandmother made this for us some 50 years ago. I have found it to be a great kid pleaser, even the fussy ones! It is affordable and simple to make. I like it better reheated for two minutes in the microwave and it freezes well.

This is exactly what I was looking for. This is so delicious, I can't stop eating it. I added about 1/4 tsp of garlic powder, other than that I followed the recipe to a tee. Thank you so much for sharing.
