Such a simple and easy recipe. This is mine and my husbands favorite mac and cheese recipe! Can be made gluten free.
I swap out the flour and elbows for gluten free and the recipe is still incredible.
I will never make boxed macaroni and cheese again! My family loves it!
i did this recipe but i did something different . i add a pie crust on top of the mac and cheese before i put it in the oven to bake. it turn out yummy and now my daughter wants me to make it this way from now on.
This is the best Macaroni & Cheese recipe. *** And adding extra cheese slices only helps******
