Blue Macaroni and Cheese
This is a great recipe for parties. It has a very different and unique flavor that just makes everyone happy. :) This is also great when you add hamburger meat to it.

Wonderful! I made this as written using the monterey jack cheese and used closer to 1 cup of blue cheese. The blue cheese made it a little tangy, but really did not overpower the sauce. My family never would have guessed there was blue cheese in this. The hot sauce added a slight kick, but again, not overpowering. Just cheesey and really tasty. Thanx for posting!
I absolutely love this recipe! My husband's favorite food is buffalo chicken so I try most recipes that contain a blue cheese/hot sauce combination. Turns out everyone like this one, not just the hubby. I prefer Frank's Hot Buffalo sauce over a regular hot sauce. The flavor is magnificent. I will be making this a lot.
