    Jennigator3's Note:

    This is the ultimate comfort food! I loved when my Mom made this for us when I was a kid. It's definitely decadent, I make it mostly for family get-togethers and it's always a hit. The sharp cheese and the breadcrumb crust make this macaroni dish unique. Enjoy!

      I was a little concerned about the ratios in this recipe, after deciding to make it, as it didn't seem that there was enough flour to thicken the sauce, and that it would just be milk with melted cheese in it. I wasn't brave enough to follow through completely, so thickened it slightly with some cornflour and water.
      A well flavoured mac cheese recipe...the sharp cheddar really makes it.
      Made for SPRING PAC 2012.

      I loved the sharpness of the cheese, and the simplicity to make it. Definetly a new favorite, this will be the third time I make it. Joined Recipezaar just so I could review this.
