    Kachup's Note:

    An easy favorite passed down to me by my mother when I went away to college. Infinitely adjustable, this recipe never fails to provide a rich, creamy, cheezy batch of mac & cheese.

      This was really good and not hard at all. I had some 33% cream in the fridge so used it instead of milk cause I didn't want it to go bad. Cre-e-e-eamy!!!!! I used the no watching no sweating pasta method from this site. My family could not believe that tomato soup was the base.

      This is really good and oh, so easy. I think that next time I will put the finished product in a casserole and cover it with grated cheese and buttered bread crumbs and bake for 30 min, until cheese is well melted, that will make it more showy and extra good. I took Linda's hint and used cream. Decadent.
