Rachel's Fancy Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by specialbekah

A twist on the classic. Swiss cheese gives it a bite and mozzarella gives it stretchy, gooey, creaminess that is irresistible. A friend of mine who is a macaroni and cheese connoisseur made this for me and I had craved it since! The other day I finally made it myself and, wow! It was every bit as good as I remembered. I asked my husband if he ate the rest of the leftovers (I had wanted them) and this is what he said : "yes. :( It was so good and it doesn't kill me to say it- make that again" LOL-he is the pickiest man I have EVER met and he liked it, so give this a try!

I used this recipe to make my first ever homemade mac and cheese. I have to say, it was quite good. I think it needed a little more flavor, but I think I just didn't mix the ingredients well enough. Like I said this was my first try, and so I wasn't sure how to get the liquid/spice mixture to be "smooth", so I admit mine was a little lumpy, but again, I think that was just my fault. I will make it again, and gain some experience and I think this will become a family favorite... whenever I have a family. I'm a single 24 year old college student teaching myself to cook/cook better.
