READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by pigtailone

I found this in a casserole cookbook circa 1964. I "tweaked" it some. My kids loved it. My daughter makes it for her family too. Serve with lightly sauteed veggies and coleslaw

This recipe is so yummy. I added all the cheese in the macaroni because my son doesn't like when it's on top. That way he liked it a lot. Thanks pigtailone :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game
