I am a very picky when it comes to cheese, so when I tried Land O'Lakes cheese I fell in love! I found this recipe and I had to try it! It's the best recipe I've ever made. I like how it isn't a wild mac&cheese recipe. It is simple, yet unique and is very impressive. My guests thought I hire a cook when I made this! I recomend this recipe to every age. Young people (children) think of this recipe has something fun and 'cool' and older people (18+) think as this as something that is good and homely and makes them think about their childhood. I've given this recipe to all my friends! THANK YOU LAND O'LAKES for being the best butter, cheese, etc. company their is!
