Macaroni & Cheese

Recipe by wife2abadge, cheesy, and comforting! I have successfully cut this recipe in half for my family of four and we still have leftovers, so the servings are quite generous.

I'm not a fan of the blue box stuff and have never made mac and cheese before so I decided to try this recipe(because of the picture!). I used gruyere cheese in place of the swiss(used what I had on hand) and that was the only change to the recipe. It was easy to make, rich, cheesy and delish! Thank you.
