Cheesy, moist, simple. This is my go-to, tried-and-true, what the kids mean when they say "can you make mac and cheese?" mac and cheese recipe. From my old, beat up Joy of Cooking cookbook. For speed and ease I cook the white sauce in the microwave instead of on the stovetop. The original recipe calls for 1/2 minced onion, 1 bay leaf and 1/4 tsp paprika in the white sauce. Instead I add whatever herb or spices strike my fancy that day, usually a herb mix from Epicure Selections like Herb and Garlic, or Pesto, or just salt and pepper.
