In my opinon, you can never have too many mac and cheese recipes. A slightly more sophisticated version of the classic macaroni and cheese. Don't worry the kids will still love it.
- In a medium pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and the macaroni. Cook until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.
- In a colander, drain the macaroni and return it to the pot.
- Fold in the cheese, butter and half-and-half. Season with the pepper. Warm through.
- Garnish with chopped chives.
