    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    A new twist on this old favourite - it's baked in a pie plate with bread crumbs as a crust, then served up in a slice, just like a pie. Recipe from the famous "Junior's" restaurant in Brooklyn.

      I love macaroni and cheese and this is a great "adult" version of the classic. Made it exactly as posted minus the food coloring. Thanks!!

      This is the best macaroni and cheese I have ever tried! I, too, do not add the food coloring. My picky children, who are strictly "blue box" kids, love this recipe and ask for seconds!! Thank you!

      This was really, REALLY yummy! Everyone loved it! I couldn't bring myself to put food coloring in a mac and cheese dinner (really do you do this?) But otherwise, followed the recipe to a t. Thanks for posting this variation of an old favorite! Also, loved "slicing" it like a pie and leftovers were eaten 50% more than the normal mac and cheese.
