Recipe by JoAnn

A nice, mild mac 'n cheese, no sharp flavors here. Very creamy with the addition of baked tomato slices on top.

Great and easy Mac N cheese. Both my Great Aunt and my Step Mom made their M&C with American (though the recipes were entirely different) And I prefer it high above cheddar! Threw in some broccoli and added some extra pasta (trying to stretch meals!) Thanks for sharing!
