Top Review by Parsley

This is the kind of homemade mac & cheese that kids love. No eggs or breadcrumbs or anything "fancy".... just good old classic, creamy mac & cheese! I doubled the recipe and I recommend doing so. I made my own basic white sauce...... butter, flour and milk. I'll make this again. Thanx for sharing!
