  1. Need to make for 80 people What is the amount of all ingredients


  1. My sister and I tried this recently while on a visit to our elderly father. We topped the casserole with some all-beef franks my father had in the fridge and popped the whole thing in the oven. The mac and cheese is very good, and very satisfying on a cold day. Good comfort food and very easy to make.
  2. This is also my favorite baked mac and cheese recipe. I got it off the Creamettes box maybe 20 years ago. I use more cheese though, and I only use Extra Sharp Cheddar - the Kraft Cracker Barrel red label. I do one more thing which was the result of a daydreaming error - I thought I was boiling water to cook collard greens. I put a whole peeled onion in the water while its coming to a boil for the pasta. It's my secret ingredient that gives a nice little kick. I take the onion out before I put in the pasta. MANY people have asked for my mac and cheese recipe.
  3. i am so thankful I finally found this recipe. I have been looking for along time but it's hard to find Creamette Brand Pasta. This how my Mom always made it. Thank you very much for posting!
  4. My mother made the best mac and cheese I ever tasted. I asked her for the recipe. She said look on the back of the creamettes elbow macaroni. It is still the best recipe after 40 years.
  5. I have made this recipe for several years and it's always a hit. Everyone always comments how much better this is than recipes that call for eggs. Last night I made it for a gathering to watch the football game and the comments ranged from "Dynamite" to "Killer" and was a HUGE success. I used some Bacon Cheese and Farmers Cheese I got in the Amish Country along with the sharp cheddar - WOW!
