This recipe came from online chef Karin Calloway. I made it for a friend after the birth of her first child. I said I would cook for her and she said she wanted Mac and Cheese...it was a big hit. And you thought Velveeta wasn't good for anything...just try this recipe and you will change your mind.

Very good and easy. I added cubed ham, and the kids and hubby gobbled it up. I would suggest watching the baking time well. I left mine covered in the oven after it was done and I think it dried out bit too much.
