    Cheryl Gero's Note:

    This is a very easy recipe that my mom used to make when i was growing up-you can change the types of cheese to add a different flavor too. I like it spicy !

      This was absolutely wonderful, my first time making homemade mac&cheese. It turned out wonderfully. This is now my 2nd time and Im taking it to a company picnic, where I'm sure it will go over well! Thanks for posting such an easy tasty recipe.

      I have my own baked mac and cheese recipe, but wanted to see how someone else's was, since I usually "eyeball." Doing so messes up my roux. Anyway, I used your recipe, adding some black pepper, garlic, paprika, and parsley. And because my family wants it rib-sticky, we doubled the cheese. I also turned the broiler on for the last 5 min. This was the best macaroni and cheese I have ever baked! Thanks for sharing!
