Mom's Cheesy Casserole (Baked Mac and Cheese)

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 30 mins

My mom always made this when my brothers and I were asking for mac and cheese - no little blue box for us! exceptionally perfect. Easily adapted to an adult taste with meat, or kept simple. I use a cream of cheddar soup but you can make a rouge of butter, flour, milk and cheddar if you prefer a pure homemade feel.

Very creamy. I added velvetta instead of cheddar because I didn't have it. Made for Eggs and Dairy.
