White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Jennigator3

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 literally made an account on here so I can leave this review. I recently got my first apartment and have been looking for easy but tasty recipes that I can make. This Mac N Cheese was UHMAZZINNGG. I think I should have salted my pasta a little more, but the recipe itself is perfect. I can't wait to have some friends over and impress them with this. LOVED IT!
