A spicy twist on mac & cheese - delicious! I found this in the Sunday paper, in a Carnation ad. We really enjoy this variation when we want an extra zip with our mac & cheese.

This is very easy to put together-no white sauce to make! And it is easliy reduced by half, so we aren't eating leftover mac n' cheese for a week :) I left out the cayenne, but will try it next time.
